Statistics is the study of collection, organization, analysis and interpretation of data.
A distinct piece of information in the form of fact or figures collected or represented for any specific purpose is called Data. In Latin, it is known as the Datum.
Data are generally of two types
Primary Data
Secondary Data
Data collected from any firsthand experience for an explicit use or purpose is known as Primary Data
Secondary data
Data collected by any third party for a different purpose other than the user is known as Secondary Data.
After collecting data it is important to present it in a meaningful manner. There are many ways to present data.
a. Raw Data- If there is no change in the data and it is in the same form as it is collected then it is said to be raw data.
Example
The marks obtained by 10 students in a Sanskrit test are
55 36 95 73 60 42 25 78 75 62
Range- The difference between the highest and the lowest number of data is called Range.
b. Frequency Distribution- When the number of items is large then we can convert it into the tabular form which is called a Frequency Distribution Table.
Frequency is the number of times the item comes in the table.
To present the very large number of items in a data we use grouped distribution table.
a. Class Interval – The group used to classify the data is called the class interval i.e. 20 – 30, 30 – 40.
b. Upper Limit - In each class interval, the greatest number is the upper-class limit.
c. Lower Limit – In each class interval, the smallest number is the lower class limit.
d. Class Size - It is the difference between the upper limit and the lower limit i.e. 10.
e. Class Mark – The midpoint of each class interval is the class mark.
Grouped data could be of two types as below:-
Inclusive or discontinuous Frequency Distribution – If the upper limit of one class is different from the lower limit next class then it is said to be an Inclusive or discontinuous Frequency Distribution.
Exclusive or continuous Frequency Distribution – If the upper limit of one class is the same as the lower limit of the next class then it is said to be exclusive or continuous Frequency Distribution
As you know a picture is better than thousand words so represent data in an easier way is to represent it graphically. Some of the methods of representing the data graphically are
It is the easiest way to represent the data in the form of rectangular bars so it is called Bar graph.
The thickness of each bar should be the same.
The space between in bar should also be same.
The height of the bar should be according to the numerical data to be represented.
Represent the average monthly rainfall of Nepal for the first six months in the year 2014.
On the x-axis mark the name of the months.
On the y-axis mark the class interval which we have chosen.
Then mark the average rainfall respective to the name of the month by the vertical bars.
The bars could be of any width but should be same.
This is the required bar graph.
It is like the Bar graph only but it is used in case of a continuous class interval.
The class intervals are to be taken along an x-axis.
The height represents the frequencies of the respective class intervals.
Draw the histogram of the following frequency distribution.
Mark the daily earnings on the x-axis.
Mark the no. of stores on the y-axis.
As the scale is starting from 700 so we will mark the zigzag to show the break.
Mark the daily earnings through the vertical bars.
To draw the frequency polygon
First, we need to draw a histogram
Then join the midpoint of the top of the bars a line segment and the figure so obtained is required frequency polygon.
The midpoint of the first bar is to be joined with the midpoint of the imaginary interval of the x-axis
The midpoint of the last bar is to be joined with the midpoint of the next interval of the x-axis.
If we need to draw the frequency polygon without drawing the histogram then first we need to calculate the class mark of each interval and these points will make the frequency polygon.
Draw the frequency polygon of a city in which the following weekly observations were made in a study on the cost of living index without histogram.
Step 1: First of all we need to calculate the class mark of each class interval.
Step 2: Take the suitable scale and represent the class marks on the x-axis.
Step 3: Take the suitable scale and represent the frequency distribution on the y-axis.
Step 4: To complete the frequency polygon we will join it with the x-axis before the first class and after the last interval.
Step 5: Now plot the respective points and join to make the frequency polygon.
To make all the study of data useful, we need to use measures of central tendencies. Some of the tendencies are
The mean is the average of the number of observations. It is calculated by dividing the sum of the values of the observations by the total number of observations.
It is represented by x bar or.
The meanof n values x_{1}, x_{2}, x_{3}, ...... x_{n }is given by
If the data is organized in such a way that the frequency is given but there is no class interval then we can calculate the mean by
where, x_{1}, x_{2}, x_{3},...... x_{n} are the observations
f_{1}, f2, f3, ...... f_{n} are the respective frequencies of the given observations.
Here, x_{1}, x_{2}, x_{3}, x_{4}, and x_{5} are 20, 40, 60, 80,100 respectively.
and f_{1} , f_{2} , f_{3} , f_{4}, f_{5} are 40, 60, 30, 50, 20 respectively.
The median is the middle value of the given number of the observation which divides into exactly two parts.
For median of ungrouped data, we arrange it in ascending order and then calculated as follows
If the number of the observations is odd then the median will beAs in the above figure the no. of observations is 7 i.e. odd, so the median will beterm.
= 4^{th} term.
The fourth term is 44.
Find the median of the following data.
1. First, we need to arrange it in ascending order.
4, 6, 7,8,10,12,12,13
2. The no. of observation is 8. As the no. of observation is even the median is the average of n/2 and (n/2)+1.
3.
4. 4^{th} term is 8 and the 5^{th} term is 10.
5. So the median
The mode is the value of the observation which shows the number that occurs frequently in data i.e. the number of observations which has the maximum frequency is known as the Mode.
Find the Mode of the following data:
15, 20, 22, 25, 30, 20,15, 20,12, 20
Here the number 20 appears the maximum number of times so
Mode = 20.
Remark: The empirical relation between the three measures of central tendency is
3 Median = Mode + 2 Mean
