Briggs UTDallas GISC 6382 Spring 2007 3 Classic Descriptive Statistics: Univariate Measures of Central Tendency and Dispersion Central Tendency: single summary measure for one variable: mean (average) median (middle value) mode (most frequently occurring) Dispersion: measure of spread or variability Variance Standard deviation (square root of variance) Formulae for variance 2 ) ( 1 2 = N X X n i i ] / ) [( 1 2 = = N N X X n i i Formulae for mean These may be obtained in ArcGIS by:opening a table, right clicking on column heading, and selecting Statisticsgoing to ArcToolbox>Analysis>Statistics>Summary Statistics Briggs UTDallas GISC 6382 Spring 2007 4 A counting of the frequency with which values occur on a variable Most easily understood for a categorical variable (e.g. ethnicity) For a continuous variable, frequency can be: calculated by dividing the variable into categories or bins (e.g income groups) represented by the proportion of the area under a frequency curve Classic Descriptive Statistics: Univariate Frequency distributions1.96 2.5% 1.96 2.5% In ArcGIS, you may obtain frequency counts on a categorical variable via:ArcToolbox>Analysis>Statistics>Frequency Briggs UTDallas GISC 6382 Spring 2007 5 Classic Descriptive Statistics: Bivariate Pearson Product Moment Correlation Coefficient (r) Measures the degree of association or strength of the relationship between two continuous variables Varies on a scale from 1 thru 0 to +11 implies perfect negative association As values on one variable rise, those on the other fall (price and quantity purchased) 0 implies no association +1 implies perfect positive association As values rise on one they also rise on the other (house price and income of occupants) X Where Sx and Sy are the standard deviations of X and Y, and X and Y are the means....
