Basic Business Statistics, 10e © 2006 Prentice- Hall, Inc.Chap 1-3 What is Statistics?? Statistics consists of a set of rules, formulas, and theorems which can be applied to numerical information (data) in order to address problems or answer questions dealing with uncertainty. or Statistics is a tool box with tools that we can apply to numerical information in order to organize, describe, and apply those data to problem solve.

Basic Business Statistics, 10e © 2006 Prentice-Hall, Inc.. Chap 1-4 Basic Concepts of Statistics Statistics is concerned with: data Collecting, Organizing, and Analyzing numerical information (i.e. data) Presenting, and Interpreting data to assist decision makers in Answering Questions Solving Problems Making Decisions

© 2004 Prentice-Hall, Inc. Chap 1-5 Some Important Definitions VARIABLE A variable is a characteristic of an item or individual. DATA Data are the different values associated with a variable (numerical information) OPERATIONAL DEFINITIONS Data values are meaningless unless their variables have operational definitions, universally accepted meanings that are clear to all associated with an analysis.

© 2004 Prentice-Hall, Inc. Chap 1-6 Some Important Definitions Population A Population (Universe) is the Whole Collection of Things Under Consideration Sample A Sample is a Portion of the Population Selected for Analysis Parameter A Parameter is a Summary Measure Computed to Describe a Characteristic of the Population Statistic A Statistic is a Summary Measure Computed to Describe a Characteristic of the Sample

Basic Business Statistics, 11e © 2009 Prentice-Hall, Inc.. Chap 1-8 Population vs. Sample PopulationSample Measures used to describe the population are called parameters Measures computed from sample data are called statistics

© 2004 Prentice-Hall, Inc. Chap 1-9 Population and Sample PopulationSample Use parameters to summarize features Use statistics to summarize features Inference on the population from the sample

Chap 1-15 From Business Stat 1, Remember How To: Construct Frequency Distributions and Histograms Calculate Measures of Central Tendency/Location Mean, Median, Mode, Quartiles Calculate Measures of Dispersion Range, Variance, Standard Deviation, Coefficient of Variation Calculate Normal Probabilities (using PhStat)

© 2004 Prentice-Hall, Inc. Chap 1-16 Measures of Central Tendency (Location) Mean Median - The median is the middle value of data once the data are ordered from lowest to highest. If the sequence contains an odd number of observations, the median is the middle value in the ordered sequence. If there are an even number of observations, the median is the average of the two center values. Mode - The mode of a data set is the value that occurs with the greatest frequency.

If a fourteenth lawyer joined the sample with a salary of \$148 (000), then the median would become: 148+152/2 = 150.

© 2004 Prentice-Hall, Inc.Chap 1-33 The coefficient of variation (CV) is a measure of variability that overcomes the difficulties that might arise when comparing absolute measures of variation such as the variance and standard deviation. The CV expresses the standard deviation as a percentage of the mean: CV = (  /  ) * 100% or CV = (s/X) * 100% Coefficient of Variation

© 2004 Prentice-Hall, Inc.Chap 1-34 Chebyshev’s Theorem Chebyshev’s theorem: For any set of observations (sample or population), the proportion of the values that lie fewer than c standard deviations of the mean is at least where c is any number greater than 1

© 2004 Prentice-Hall, Inc.Chap 1-35 Chebyshev’s Theorem 2 standard deviations At least 75% of the data lie inside this range

© 2004 Prentice-Hall, Inc.Chap 1-36 68% 95% 99.7% Empirical Rule: When the distribution of a population or sample of data is approximately bell-shaped, approximately 68% of the observations will lie within 1 standard deviation of the mean; approximately 95% will fall within 2 standard deviations of the mean; and approximately 99.7% will fall within 3 standard deviations of the mean.

Graphing Numerical Data: The Histogram A graph of the data in a frequency distribution is called a histogram The class boundaries (or class midpoints) are shown on the horizontal axis the vertical axis is either frequency, relative frequency, or percentage Bars of the appropriate heights are used to represent the number of observations within each class
