Labor Demand
In classical theory, buying of labor services are firms. The demand for labor is based
upon certain assumptions. The first and the most important is that firms are perfect
competitors which believe in choos

The feasibility of constructing a profitable electricity- producing windmill depends on the
mean velocity of the wind. For a certain type of windmill, the mean would have to exceed 20
miles per hour to warrant its construction. The determination of a site

Exponential Trend Calculation
What is Exponential Trend?
Exponential trend is a technique which is applied to time series data for making forecasts. The
observed phenomenon is essentially a random process like time series data. Unlike other smoothing

Coefficient of Quartile Variation
What is variability?
Variability refers to how spread out the data distribution is. The extent to which the
measures of average are good representatives of the scores from the data depends on the
variability of that data.

Multivariate Analysis
What is multivariate analysis?
The fundamental concept of multivariate analysis is based upon the statistical principal of
multivariate statistics, which actively involves analysis of at least one statistical outcome

Using normal standard variate formula;
Z = (X - Mean)/sd
