Topics For Today 1. Exploratory Data Analysis: 2. Descriptive Statistics: Exploratory Summaries We have seen some graphs – lets look at other descriptive statistics. Measures of Center Mean The ‘average’ value: Median The middle value. Mode The most common value. Measures of Center Mean The ‘average’ value: ¯ x = 1 n n X i =1 x i (1) Median The middle value. Mode The most common value. Measures of Center Mean The ‘average’ value: ¯ x = 1 n n X i =1 x i (1) Median The middle value. Median ( x ) = x ( n +1 2 ) if n is odd 1 2 x ( n 2 ) + x ( n 2 +1 ) if n is even (2) where x ( i ) denotes the i th smallest value i.e., x (1) = min , x ( n ) = max . Mode The most common value. Beyond the Center The median naturally describes the center of a distribution. What other quantities might we want to describe? Beyond the Center The median naturally describes the center of a distribution. What other quantities might we want to describe? Definition Percentiles Definition 2.6, Rosner: Define the p th percentile by: 1. The ( k + 1)-th largest value, if np / 100 is not an integer (where k is the largest integer less than np / 100 ). 2. The average of the np / 100-th and ( np / 100 + 1)-th largest values, if np / 100 is an integer. Beyond the Center The median naturally describes the center of a distribution.
