Recall The distribution of a variable is the possible values it can take on and how often it takes on those values. Ex. Suppose we have the heights of 15 individuals 67, 62, 68, 70, 71, 59, 62, 63, 68, 70, 72, 73, 66, 68, 71 Can you describe the distribution of theses heights? Any quantitative variable can be converted into a categorical variable How might these heights be converted into a categorical variable so that it’s distribution is easier to describe?
