Example text

Also, in small sample sets, several different values may occur with the same frequency, and hence, the mode can be meaningless as a measure of central tendency. 8. It is possible for a set of data to have more than one mode. A common example is a data set with two modes, which is said to be bimodal . 7 ADDITIONAL DEFINITIONS Several other terms that are pertinent to the study of observations and their analysis are listed and defined below. 1. True value, μ. The true value is a quantity’s theoretically correct or exact value.

A bar chart showing daily high temperatures over the past month is another. Also, data can be presented in numerical form and be subjected to numerical analysis. As a simple example, instead of using the bar chart, the daily high temperatures could be tabulated and the mean computed. In surveying, observational data can also be represented and analyzed either graphically or numerically. In this chapter some rudimentary methods for doing so are explored. 2 SAMPLE VERSUS POPULATION Due to time and financial constraints in statistical analyses, generally, only a small sample of data is collected from a much larger, possibly infinite population.

3%. 3. 37 ). 0 ). 1. A comparison of the two histograms shows this precision difference graphically. 3. 7 that the denominator of the equation for the sample variance was n − 1, while the denominator of the population variance was n. A simple explanation for this difference is that one observation is necessary to compute the mean (y), and thus only n − 1 observations remain for the variance’s computation. 5) will clarify. Consider a sample size of n drawn from a population with a mean, μ, and standard error of σ .
