GBS 221 Dominguez Descriptive Statistics Project #1 The question that was interesting to me was regarding the NBA players for the Los Angeles Lakers team. How much does an NBA Laker player weigh? I analyzed data from a website called Basketball Reference which includes all the stats you can think of about the NBA teams and the individual players. I analyzed data from the 2018 and 2019 season in order to meet the 30 observations. The information I gathered from the data is the average weight of a Laker player is 215.83lbs and they range in weight from 174lbs to 270lbs. The mean of the data is 215.83lbs which is the average weight for the dataset. The median is 215lbs, which is the middle value that separates the higher and lower values of the data compared to the average which is a total of all the weights divided by the total number of observations. This means that 215lbs is the center value that separates all larger and smaller weights for the dataset. The mode is 215lbs and it is the value that is repeated the most throughout the data, mode happens more frequently than any other weight. The variation of the data shows that the range of the weight is 96lbs. This means we find the difference of the highest value, 270lbs, and the lowest value, 174lbs, and shows you the amount of values between the largest and smallest value to show how much the weight varies.
