Sample text

Arithmetic mean. For a set of n observations, y1 , y2 , . . , yn , the arithmetic mean is the average of the observations. 1) 18 OBSERVATIONS AND THEIR ANALYSIS Typically, the symbol y is used to represent the sample’s arithmetic mean, and the symbol μ is used to represent the population mean. Otherwise, the same equation applies. 5. 2. Median. As mentioned previously, this is the midpoint of a sample set when arranged in ascending or descending order. One-half of the data are above the median and one-half are below it.

3. Mode. Within a sample of data, the mode is the most frequently occurring value. It is seldom used in surveying because of the relatively small number of values observed in a typical set of observations. Also, in small sample sets, several different values may occur with the same frequency, and hence, the mode can be meaningless as a measure of central tendency. 8. It is possible for a set of data to have more than one mode. A common example is a data set with two modes, which is said to be bimodal .

This is called the class frequency. 2 aids greatly in this counting process. 2. Often, it is also useful to calculate the class relative frequency for each interval. This is found by dividing the class frequency by the total number of observations. 04. 26. 3. Notice that the sum of all class relative frequencies is always 1 . The class relative frequency enables easy determination of percentages. 16 × 100%) of the sample observations. A histogram is a bar graph plotted with either class frequencies or relative class frequencies on the ordinate, versus values of the class interval bounds on the abscissa.
