Data analysis: frequencies GAP Toolkit 5 Training in basic drug abuse data management and analysis Training session 8

2
Objectives Introduce univariate, descriptive statistics as the first step in a process of data analysis, starting from exploration and moving towards more sophisticated techniques Distinguish between frequencies and relative frequencies Introduce frequency and probability distributions as data models

5
Frequency vs relative frequency The frequency of any value of a variable is the number of times that value occurs in the data; that is, a frequency is a count. The relative frequency of any value is the proportion or fraction or percent of all observations that have that value. (D. S. Moore, Statistics: Concepts and Controversies, 5th ed. (New York, W. H. Freeman Press, 2000)).

6
Frequency distribution/probability distribution Frequency distribution: all possible values of the variable and their associated counts Probability distribution: all possible values of the variable and their associated probabilities (relative frequencies)

7
Percentages Let: –f 1 = the number of cases in category 1 –n = the total number of cases The percentage of cases in category 1:
