acronym to describe a distribution

SOCS

New cards
2

Socs

spread; state the highest and lowest value

New cards
3

sOcs

outliers; state values that stand out

New cards
4

soCs

center; approximate mean

New cards
5

socS

shape; symmetry or skewedness

New cards
6

symmetric

mean = median

New cards
7

skewed left

mean < median

negative skew

mean to the left of median

New cards
8

skewed right

mean > median

positive skew

mean to the right of the median

New cards
9

time plot of a variable

plots each observation against the time at which it was measured

New cards
10

5# Summary

minimum, Q1, median, Q3, maximum

New cards
11

IQR

the distance between the first and third quartile

New cards
12

IQR =

Q3 - Q1

New cards
13

calculate lower outlier

Q1 - 1.5(IQR)

New cards
14

calculate higher outlier

Q3 + 1.5(IQR)

New cards
15

second method to calculate outliers

if value is located 2 or more SD’s above or below the mean

New cards
16

standard deviation

average distance from the mean of all the values in a data set

New cards
17

SD for a population

SD = sqrt [ Σ ( x - μ )² / N ]

New cards
18

SD for a sample

SD = sqrt [ Σ(x - x̄)² / (n - 1) ]

New cards
19

frequency table

gives the number of cases falling into each category

New cards
20

relative frequency table

gives the proportion of cases falling into each category

New cards
21

percentages, relative frequencies, and rates all provide the same information as

proportions

New cards
22

bar charts(graphs) are used to display

frequencies for categorical data

New cards
23

discrete variable

can take a countable number of values, could be finite or countably infinite

New cards
24

continuous variable

can take on infinitely many values but values cannot be counted no matter how small the interval there is, there is always a value in between

New cards
25

univariate

one main peak

New cards
26

bimodal

two prominent peaks

New cards
27

uniform

height is the same

New cards
28

gap

region between two values with on data observed

New cards
29

cluster

concentration of data separated by gaps

New cards
30

statistic

numerical summary of sample data

New cards
31

p^th percentile

value that has p% of data less than or equal to it

New cards
32

variability

how spread out scores are in a distribution

The degree to which data points differ from each other or from the mean value. It can be measured by calculating the variance or standard deviation of a dataset.

New cards
33

3 measures of variability

range, IQR, SD

New cards
34

the empirical rule

This rule states that for a normal distribution, approximately 68% of the data falls within one standard deviation of the mean, 95% falls within two standard deviations, and 99.7% falls within three standard deviations.
