STAT 210 Lecture 12 Boxplots September 22 2017 Test 2 Monday September 25 Sections III IV pages 47 95 Combination of multiple choice questions and problems Bring a calculator and writing instrument Practice Problems Pages 94 through 97 Relevant problems IV 7 through IV 12 Recommended problems IV 7 IV 8 and IV 11 Additional Reading and Examples Pages 90 through 93 Motivating Example A statistics course at a large university provides free to students statistics review sessions that students can use to answer questions with help solving problems and with help studying for tests The course instructor is interested in the number of students who attend each hour of review session and selects a sample of 15 review session hours spread out over a month s time The number of students who attended these 15 review session hours is as follows This data will be used throughout the rest of this chapter 6 1 8 3 1 5 11 7 4 28 12 9 2 10 13 Top Hat 2 Measures of Central Location 1 Mean influenced by outliers Population mean denoted by m Sample mean denoted by X 2 Median resistant to outliers Population median denoted by h Sample median denoted by M Measures of Spread 1 Range measure of overall spread influenced by outliers 2 Standard Deviation measure of spread around the mean influenced by outliers population standard deviation denoted s sample standard deviation denoted s 3 Interquartile Range measure of spread around the median resistant to outliers Boxplots A graphical display which uses several of the numerical measures to give information on the symmetry or skewness shape of the distribution on the central location and variability spread in a distribution and on the concentration of scores in tails of distribution outliers Boxplots 1 Order the data from smallest to largest Boxplots 1 Order the data from smallest to largest 2 Compute a five number summary Minimum Q1 Median Q3 Maximum Boxplots 1 Order the data from smallest to largest 2 Five number summary

Any observation less than the lower fence value or greater than the upper fence value is an outlier Boxplots 1 2 3 4 Order the data from smallest to largest Five number summary Interquartile Range IQR Q3 Q1 Lower fence Q1 1 5 IQR Upper fence Q3 1 5 IQR Outliers any observation less than the lower fence value or greater than the upper fence value 5 After removing the outliers the lower adjacent value is the smallest observation that remains in the data set and the upper adjacent value is the largest observation that remains in the data set Boxplots 1 2 3 4 Order the data from smallest to largest Five number summary Interquartile Range IQR Q3 Q1 Lower fence Q1 1 5 IQR Upper fence Q3 1 5 IQR Outliers any observation less than the lower fence value or greater than the upper fence value 5 After removing the outliers the lower adjacent value is the smallest observation that remains in the data set and the upper adjacent value is the largest observation that remains in the data set 6
