Chap 2-5

Organizing Categorical Data: Bar Chart
?

In a bar chart, a bar shows each category, the length of which represents the amount, frequency or percentage of values falling into a category.

Stem-and-Leaf Display
?

A simple way to see how the data are distributed and where concentrations of data exist METHOD: Separate the sorted data series into leading digits (the stems) and the trailing digits (the leaves)

Basic Business Statistics, 11e ? 2009 Prentice-Hall, Inc..

Chap 2-12

Organizing Numerical Data: Stem and Leaf Display
?

A stem-and-leaf display organizes data into groups (called stems) so that the values within each group (the leaves) branch out to the right on each row.

Chap 2-13

Organizing Numerical Data: Frequency Distribution
?

The frequency distribution is a summary table in which the data are arranged into numerically ordered classes.
You must give attention to selecting the appropriate number of class groupings for the table, determining a suitable width of a class grouping, and establishing the boundaries of each class grouping to avoid overlapping. The number of classes depends on the number of values in the data. With a larger number of values, typically there are more classes. In general, a frequency distribution should have at least 5 but no more than 15 classes. To determine the width of a class interval, you divide the range (Highest value–Lowest value) of the data by the number of class groupings desired.

Why Use a Frequency Distribution?

?

It condenses the raw data into a more useful form

?

It allows for a quick visual interpretation of the data
It enables the determination of the major characteristics of the data set including where the data are concentrated / clustered
Chap 2-19

?

Basic Business Statistics, 11e ? 2009 Prentice-Hall, Inc..

Frequency Distributions: Some Tips
?

Different class boundaries may provide different pictures for the same data (especially for smaller data sets)
Shifts in data concentration may show up when different class boundaries are chosen As the size of the data set increases, the impact of alterations in the selection of class boundaries is greatly reduced When comparing two or more groups with different sample sizes, you must use either a relative frequency or a percentage distribution
Chap 2-20

?

?

?

Basic Business Statistics, 11e ? 2009 Prentice-Hall, Inc..

Organizing Numerical Data: The Histogram
?

A vertical bar chart of the data in a frequency distribution is called a histogram.
In a histogram there are no gaps between adjacent bars. The class boundaries (or class midpoints) are shown on the horizontal axis.

?

?

?

The vertical axis is either frequency, relative frequency, or percentage.
The height of the bars represent the frequency, relative frequency, or percentage.

(In a percentage histogram the vertical axis would be defined to show the percentage of observations per class)

Basic Business Statistics, 11e ? 2009 Prentice-Hall, Inc..

Chap 2-22

Organizing Numerical Data: The Polygon
?

A percentage polygon is formed by having the midpoint of each class represent the data in that class and then connecting the sequence of midpoints at their respective class percentages.
The cumulative percentage polygon, or ogive, displays the variable of interest along the X axis, and the cumulative percentages along the Y axis. Useful when there are two or more groups to compare.

Cross Tabulations
?

Used to study patterns that may exist between two or more categorical variables. Cross tabulations can be presented in:
? ?

Tabular form -- Contingency Tables Graphical form -- Side by Side Charts

Basic Business Statistics, 11e ? 2009 Prentice-Hall, Inc..

Chap 2-26

Cross Tabulations: The Contingency Table
?

A cross-classification (or contingency) table presents the results of two categorical variables. The joint responses are classified so that the categories of one variable are located in the rows and the categories of the other variable are located in the columns. The cell is the intersection of the row and column and the value in the cell represents the data corresponding to that specific pairing of row and column categories. A useful way to visually display the results of crossclassification data is by constructing a side-by-side bar chart.

Principles of Excellent Graphs
?
?

? ? ? ?

The graph should not distort the data. The graph should not contain unnecessary adornments (sometimes referred to as chart junk). The scale on the vertical axis should begin at zero. All axes should be properly labeled. The graph should contain a title. The simplest possible graph should be used for a given set of data.
