Although measures of central tendency are quite useful, a measure of central tendency, by itself, is not sufﬁcient to provide an adequate summary of the characteristics of a dataset. For example, consider the following three sets of observations in income: 44 3 Descriptive Statistics xð$Þ yð$Þ zð$Þ 14; 000 4000 2000 17; 000 12; 000 10; 000 20; 000 20; 000 30; 000 23; 000 26; 000 28; 000 36; 000 38; 000 The mean of the income in all the three distributions is $20,000. But the distributions are not the same.
In such a case the formula for calculating the mean is to be modiﬁed as follows: ¼ Xi fi X N where Xi individual score of ith case fi frequency of ith case N total number of cases =Σ fil. 1. Calculate the mean space per building over the 4-year period. ¼ 17; 242; 940 X 720 ¼ 23; 949 m2 per building over the four - year period: Often the continuous data are transformed into groups by forming certain classes and frequencies of respective classes are provided. We need to calculate the mean of the whole dataset.
1. When the distribution is skewed to the right, Mean > Median > Mode. This is illustrated in Fig. 2. 1 Central Tendency 43 Fig. 1 Symmetrical distribution Fig. 2 Right-skewed distribution Fig. 3 Left-skewed distribution When the distribution is skewed to the left, Mean < Median < Mode. This is illustrated in Fig. 3. 2 Measures of Dispersion In the previous chapter, we have studied measures of central tendency. Although measures of central tendency are quite useful, a measure of central tendency, by itself, is not sufﬁcient to provide an adequate summary of the characteristics of a dataset.
