1. Section 2.4 Measures of Variation

2. Section 2.4 Objectives • Determine the range of a data set • Determine the variance and standard deviation of a population and of a sample • Use the Empirical Rule and Chebychev’s Theorem to interpret standard deviation • Approximate the sample standard deviation for grouped data

3. Range Range • The difference between the maximum and minimum data entries in the set. • The data must be quantitative. • Range = (Max. data entry) – (Min. data entry)

4. Example: Finding the Range A corporation hired 10 graduates. The starting salaries for each graduate are shown. Find the range of the starting salaries. Starting salaries (1000s of dollars) 41 38 39 45 47 41 44 41 37 42

5. minimum maximum Solution: Finding the Range • Ordering the data helps to find the least and greatest salaries. 37 38 39 41 41 41 42 44 45 47 • Range = (Max. salary) – (Min. salary) = 47 – 37 = 10 The range of starting salaries is 10 or \$10,000.

6. Deviation, Variance, and Standard Deviation Deviation • The difference between the data entry, x, and the mean of the data set. • Population data set: • Deviation of x = x – μ • Sample data set: • Deviation of x = x – x

7. Example: Finding the Deviation A corporation hired 10 graduates. The starting salaries for each graduate are shown. Find the deviation of the starting salaries. Starting salaries (1000s of dollars) 41 38 39 45 47 41 44 41 37 42 • Solution: • First determine the mean starting salary.

20. Example: Finding the Sample Standard Deviation The starting salaries are for the Chicago branches of a corporation. The corporation has several other branches, and you plan to use the starting salaries of the Chicago branches to estimate the starting salaries for the larger population. Find the sample standard deviation of the starting salaries. Starting salaries (1000s of dollars) 41 38 39 45 47 41 44 41 37 42

23. Example: Using Technology to Find the Standard Deviation Sample office rental rates (in dollars per square foot per year) for Miami’s central business district are shown in the table. Use a calculator or a computer to find the mean rental rate and the sample standard deviation. (Adapted from: Cushman & Wakefield Inc.)

25. Interpreting Standard Deviation • Standard deviation is a measure of the typical amount an entry deviates from the mean. • The more the entries are spread out, the greater the standard deviation.

26. Usual Sample Values minimum ‘usual’ value  (mean) - 2 (standard deviation) minimum x - 2(s) maximum ‘usual’ value  (mean) + 2 (standard deviation) maximum x + 2(s)

27. Interpreting Standard Deviation: Empirical Rule (68 – 95 – 99.7 Rule) For data with a (symmetric) bell-shaped distribution, the standard deviation has the following characteristics: • About 68%of the data lie within one standard deviation of the mean. • About95%of the data lie within two standard deviations of the mean. • About99.7%of the data lie within three standard deviations of the mean.

28. Interpreting Standard Deviation: Empirical Rule (68 – 95 – 99.7 Rule) 99.7% within 3 standard deviations 95% within 2 standard deviations 68% within 1 standard deviation 34% 34% 2.35% 2.35% 13.5% 13.5%

29. Example: Using the Empirical Rule In a survey conducted by the National Center for Health Statistics, the sample mean height of women in the United States (ages 20-29) was 64 inches, with a sample standard deviation of 2.71 inches. Estimate the percent of the women whose heights are between 64 inches and 69.42 inches.

30. Solution: Using the Empirical Rule • Because the distribution is bell-shaped, you can use the Empirical Rule. 34% 13.5% 55.87 58.58 61.29 64 66.71 69.42 72.13 34% + 13.5% = 47.5% of women are between 64 and 69.42 inches tall.

31. Chebychev’s Theorem • The portion of any data set lying within k standard deviations (k > 1) of the mean is at least: • k = 2: In any data set, at least of the data lie within 2 standard deviations of the mean. • k = 3: In any data set, at least of the data lie within 3 standard deviations of the mean.

32. Example: Using Chebychev’s Theorem The age distribution for Florida is shown in the histogram. Apply Chebychev’s Theorem to the data using k = 2. What can you conclude?

33. Solution: Using Chebychev’s Theorem k = 2: μ – 2σ = 39.2 – 2(24.8) = -10.4 (use 0 since age can’t be negative) μ + 2σ = 39.2 + 2(24.8) = 88.8 At least 75% of the population of Florida is between 0 and 88.8 years old.

34. Estimation of Standard Deviation Range Rule of Thumb x + 2s x - 2s x (maximum usual value) (minimum usual value) Range  4s or Range 4 highest value - lowest value s  = 4 34

35. Standard Deviation for Grouped Data Sample standard deviation for a frequency distribution • When a frequency distribution has classes, estimate the sample mean and standard deviation by using the midpoint of each class. where n= Σf (the number of entries in the data set)

36. Example: Finding the Standard Deviation for Grouped Data You collect a random sample of the number of children per household in a region. Find the sample mean and the sample standard deviation of the data set.

37. Solution: Finding the Standard Deviation for Grouped Data • First construct a frequency distribution. • Find the mean of the frequency distribution. The sample mean is about 1.8 children. Σf = 50 Σ(xf )= 91

38. Solution: Finding the Standard Deviation for Grouped Data • Determine the sum of squares.

39. Solution: Finding the Standard Deviation for Grouped Data • Find the sample standard deviation. The standard deviation is about 1.7 children.

What percentage of Americans would you expect to consume more than 31 pounds of citrus fruit per year?
