Data Analysis
Kulwant Singh Kapoor
Data Structure
The process of arranging data in groups or
classes according to resemblances and
similarities is technically called
classification.
Types of Classification:
Geographical
Chronological
Qualitative
Quantitative
Geographical Data
In geographical classification data are classified on the
basis of place.
Example: geographical distribution of National Income
COUNTRY INCOME IN US DOLLARS
Canada 7950
USA 7880
West Germany 7510
France 6730
USSR 2800
India 500
Chronological Data
When the data are classified on the basis of time,
also known as time series.
Example: production of polio vaccine by a company
X.
YEAR No. of Vaccines
2005 12,800
2006 15,600
2007 18,200
2008 16,600
2009 20,000
2010 20,800
Qualitative Data
When data are classified on the basis of descriptive
characteristics or attributes.
Examples:
Male/ Female
Strongly agree/ Agree/Disagree/Strongly Disagree
Low/Medium/High
Diabetic/Non Diabetic
Hypertensive/Mildly Hypertensive/Non
Hypertensive
Quantitative Classification
When classification is based on characteristics
which are capable of Quantitative measurement.
Example:
Height/Weight
Income/Expenditure
Blood Pressure
Body Temperature
Blood Count

Arithmetic Mean of a given set of observations is
their sum divided by the number of observations.

In Case of continuous data, the value of X is
taken as the mid value of the corresponding

Mathematical Properties of
Arithmetic Mean
Property 1 The Algebraic sum of the
deviations of the given set of
observations from their arithmetic
mean is zero
Property 2 If the sizes and the mean
of two component series is known then
the mean of resultant series obtained
on combining the given series can be
found
Merits and demerits of
Arithmetic Mean
Merits:
i. It is rigidly defined.
ii. It is easy to calculate and understand.
iii. It is based on all the observations
iv. It is suitable for further mathematical
treatment.
v. Of all the averages, arithmetic mean is
affected least by fluctuations of sampling
or arithmetic mean is a stable average.
(contd.)
Merits and demerits of
Arithmetic Mean
Demerits:
i. It is affected by extreme observations.
ii. It cannot be used in case of open end classes such as less than 10
and more than 70, etc.
iii. It can not be determined by inspection nor can it be located
graphically.
iv. It cannot be used in dealing with qualitative characteristics.
v. It cannot be obtained if a single observation is missing or lost.
vi. It is not representative of the distribution and hence is not a suitable
measure of location
vii. It may lead to wrong conclusion if the details of the data from which
it is obtained are not available.
viii. Arithmetic mean may not be one of the values which the variable
actually takes and is termed as fictitious mean

Example
Mean height of 25 Male worker in the
factory is 61 inches and Mean height of 35
female worker is the same factory is 58
inches. Find out the combine Mean of 60
workers
Median
Median is that value of the variable which
divides the group in two equal parts, one
part comprising all the values greater and
the other, all the values less than the
median.
Median is only a positional average i.e, its
value depends on the position occupied by
a value in the frequency distribution.
Calculation of Median
Case I: Ungrouped data: If the number of observation is odd,
then the median is the middle value after the observations
have been arranged in ascending or descending order of
magnitude.
Case II: Discreet Distribution: In case of frequency
distribution where the variable takes the value X
1,
X
2,, ,
X
n
with respective frequencies
1,
2,, ,
n
with =N, total
frequency, median is the size of the (N+1)/2th item or
observation. In this case the use of cumulative frequency
(c. .) distribution facilitates the calculations.

useful in the case of skewed distributions

end classes
v. It can sometimes be located by simple inspection and can
also be computed graphically
vi. It is the only average to be used while dealing with qualitative
characteristics which can not be measured quantitatively but
still can be arranged in ascending oe descending order of
magnitude.

Merits And Demerits
Demerits:
i. In case of even number of observations of
ungrouped data it can not be determined
exactly.

distribution.

treatment.
iv. It is relatively less stable than mean, particularly
for small samples.

data into four equal parts are
known as quartiles. Therefore,
there will be only three such points

Range is the difference between the two extreme
observations of distribution
OR
It is the difference between the greatest (maximum) and the
smallest (minimum) observation of the distribution.
It is the simplest but crude measure of dispersion. It is
rigidly defined, readily comprehensible and easiest to
compute requiring very little calculations

Merits and Demerits of Range
It is not based in the entire set of data.
Its value varies very widely from sample to
sample.
If the X
max
and X
min
remain unaltered and all the
other values are replaced by a set of observation
the range of distribution remains the same.
It can not be used when dealing with open end
classes
Not Suitable for mathematical treatment.
It is very sensitive to the size of the sample.
It is too indefinite to be used as a practical
measure of dispersion.

Merits and Demerits of Quartile
Merits:
It is quite easy to understand & calculate.
It makes use of 50% of the data & as such is
better measure than range
As it ignore 25% of data from the beginning and
25% from the top end, it is not affected at all by
extreme observations.
It can be Computed from the Frequency
distribution with open end classes .
(Contd.)
Demerits:
It is not based on all observations.
It is affected considerably by
fluctuations of sampling.
It is not suitable for further
mathematical treatment.

Average or Mean deviation is the average amount of scatter
of the items in a distribution from either the mean or the
median, ignoring the signs of deviation. The average that is
taken of the scatter is an arithmetic mean, which accounts for
the fact that this measure is often called the mean deviation.

For ungrouped data

When the relationships of quantitative
nature, the appropriate statistical tool for
discovering and measuring the relationship
and expressing it in a brief formula is known
as correlation
It is defined as an analysis of the co
variation between two or more variables
Types of Correlation
a) Positive and negative correlation
b) Linear and nonlinear correlation
METHODS OF STUDYING
CORRELATION
1. Scatter diagram
2. Karl Pearsons coefficient of
correlation
3. Bivariate correlation method
4. Rank correlation
