## Histograms, Frequency Polygons, and Time Series Graphs

For most of the work you do in this book, you will use a histogram to display the data. One advantage of a histogram is that it can readily display large data sets. A histogram consists of contiguous adjoining boxes.

It has both a horizontal axis and a vertical axis. The horizontal axis is more or less a number line, labeled with what the data represents, for example, distance from your home to school.

The vertical axis is labeled either frequency or relative frequency or percent frequency or probability. The graph will have the same shape with either label. The histogram like the stemplot can give you the shape of the data, the center, and the spread of the data.

The shape of the data refers to the shape of the distribution, whether normal, approximately normal, or skewed in some direction, whereas the center is thought of as the middle of a data set, and the spread indicates how far the values are dispersed about the center.

In a skewed distribution, the mean is pulled toward the tail of the distribution. The relative frequency is equal to the frequency for an observed value of the data divided by the total number of data values in the sample. Remember, frequency is defined as the number of times an answer occurs. For example, if three students in Mr. Thus, 7. Ninety to percent is a quantitative measures.

To construct a histogram , first decide how many bars or intervals , also called classes, represent the data. Many histograms consist of five to 15 bars or classes for clarity. The width of each bar is also referred to as the bin size, which may be calculated by dividing the range of the data values by the desired number of bins or bars. The following data are the heights in inches to the nearest half inch of male semiprofessional soccer players.

The heights are continuous data since height is measured. The smallest data value is 60, and the largest data value is To make sure each is included in an interval, we can use We have a small range here of So, We will round up to two and make each bar or class interval two units wide.

Rounding up to two is a way to prevent a value from falling on a boundary. Rounding to the next number is often necessary even if it goes against the standard rules of rounding.

For this example, using 1. A guideline that is followed by some for the width of a bar or class interval is to take the square root of the number of data values and then round to the nearest whole number, if necessary. For example, if there are values of data, take the square root of and round to 12 bars or intervals. The heights 60 through The heights that are The heights that are 64 through The heights 66 through The heights 68 through The heights 70 through 71 are in the interval The heights 72 through The height 74 is in the interval The following histogram displays the heights on the x -axis and relative frequency on the y -axis.

The following data are the shoe sizes of 50 male students. The sizes are continuous data since shoe size is measured. Construct a histogram and calculate the width of each bar or class interval.

Use six bars on the histogram. The following data are the number of books bought by 50 part-time college students at ABC College. The number of books is discrete data since books are counted. Eleven students buy one book. Ten students buy two books. Sixteen students buy three books. Six students buy four books. Five students buy five books.

Two students buy six books. The smallest data value is 1, and the largest data value is 6. To make sure each is included in an interval, we can use 0. We have a small range here of 6 6. So, six divided by six bins gives a bin size or interval size of one.

Notice that we may choose different rational numbers to add to, or subtract from, our maximum and minimum values when calculating bin size. In the previous example, we added and subtracted.

Given a data set, you will be able to determine what is appropriate and reasonable. The following histogram displays the number of books on the x -axis and the frequency on the y -axis. Go to Appendix G. There are calculator instructions for entering data and for creating a customized histogram. Create the histogram for Example 2.

The following data are the number of sports played by 50 student athletes. The number of sports is discrete data since sports are counted.

Twenty-two student athletes play two sports. Eight student athletes play three sports. Calculate a desired bin size for the data. Create a histogram and clearly label the endpoints of the intervals. Some values in this data set fall on boundaries for the class intervals. A value is counted in a class interval if it falls on the left boundary but not if it falls on the right boundary. Different researchers may set up histograms for the same data in different ways. There is more than one correct way to set up a histogram.

The following data represent the number of employees at various restaurants in New York City. Using this data, create a histogram. Count the money bills and change in your pocket or purse. Your instructor will record the amounts. As a class, construct a histogram displaying the data. Discuss how many intervals you think would be appropriate.

You may want to experiment with the number of intervals. Frequency polygons are analogous to line graphs, and just as line graphs make continuous data visually easy to interpret, so too do frequency polygons. To construct a frequency polygon, first examine the data and decide on the number of intervals and resulting interval size, for both the x -axis and y -axis.

The x -axis will show the lower and upper bound for each interval, containing the data values, whereas the y -axis will represent the frequencies of the values. Each data point represents the frequency for each interval.

For example, if an interval has three data values in it, the frequency polygon will show a 3 at the upper endpoint of that interval. After choosing the appropriate intervals, begin plotting the data points.

After all the points are plotted, draw line segments to connect them. Notice that each point represents frequency for a particular interval. These points are located halfway between the lower bound and upper bound. In fact, the horizontal axis, or x -axis, shows only these midpoint values. For the interval For the interval occurring before The same idea applies to the last interval of Looking at the graph, we say that this distribution is skewed because one side of the graph does not mirror the other side.

Construct a frequency polygon of U. Frequency polygons are useful for comparing distributions. This comparison is achieved by overlaying the frequency polygons drawn for different data sets. We will construct an overlay frequency polygon comparing the scores from Example 2. Suppose that we want to study the temperature range of a region for an entire month.

Every day at noon, we note the temperature and write this down in a log.

## [The histogram].

For most of the work you do in this book, you will use a histogram to display the data. One advantage of a histogram is that it can readily display large data sets. A rule of thumb is to use a histogram when the data set consists of values or more. A histogram consists of contiguous adjoining boxes. It has both a horizontal axis and a vertical axis. The horizontal axis is labeled with what the data represents for instance, distance from your home to school. The vertical axis is labeled either frequency or relative frequency or percent frequency or probability.

With SPSS for some diagrams there are different options to generate the same output. The two most commonly ones are by using the Chart Builder, or the older Legacy dialogs both under the Graphs menu. Some diagrams can also be made using the Frequencies option the same as used for the tables , some the Explore option, and some by using an already generated frequency table or other diagram. Perhaps this is possible using the programming language syntax from SPSS, but in the graphical user interface I have not come across any way to show any of these. SPSS also has something known as the graphboard template chooser, but I found this to be very limited.

Frequency Distribution: a set of intervals, table or graph, usually of equal width, into which raw data is organized; each interval is associated with a frequency that.

## Frequency distribution

For most of the work you do in this book, you will use a histogram to display the data. One advantage of a histogram is that it can readily display large data sets. A rule of thumb is to use a histogram when the data set consists of values or more.

Each data value gets its own line in the table. The cumulative frequency polygon shows the weights of S2 students. Another problem for me, I want to generate a time series graph showing cumulative frequency of a given categorical variable across time in panel dataset. You will need to be able to work out the cumulative frequency as well as use this to plot a cumulative frequency graph.

#### Constructing a Time Series Graph

In statistics , a frequency distribution is a list, table or graph that displays the frequency of various outcomes in a sample. Here is an example of a univariate single variable frequency table. The frequency of each response to a survey question is depicted. A different tabulation scheme aggregates values into bins such that each bin encompasses a range of values. For example, the heights of the students in a class could be organized into the following frequency table.

Вы делали ему искусственное дыхание. На лице старика появилось виноватое выражение. - Увы, я не знаю, как это делается. Я вызвал скорую. Беккер вспомнил синеватый шрам на груди Танкадо.

- Он протянул конверт Беккеру, и тот прочитал надпись, сделанную синими чернилами: Сдачу возьмите. Беккер открыл конверт и увидел толстую пачку красноватых банкнот. - Что .

Вы заплатили ему десять тысяч долларов? - Она повысила голос. - Это грязный трюк. - Трюк? - Теперь уже Стратмор не мог скрыть свое раздражение. - Это вовсе не трюк.

Ему удалось проскользнуть внутрь в последнюю секунду перед тем, как дверь закрылась. Человек улыбнулся: охота становилась интересной. Беккер здесь… Я чувствую, что. Он двигался методично, обходя один ряд за другим. Наверху лениво раскачивалась курильница, описывая широкую дугу.

*Она потянулась к Дэвиду. Это ей снится.*

Вся моя жизнь - это работа здесь, в Агентстве национальной безопасности. Сьюзан слушала молча. - Как ты могла догадаться, - продолжал он, - вскоре я собираюсь выйти в отставку. Но я хотел уйти с высоко поднятой головой. Я хотел уйти с сознанием, что добился своей цели.

Консьерж взглянул на конверт и что-то грустно пробормотал себе под нос. Еще один любитель молоденьких девочек, - подумал. - Ну. Сеньор?. - Буисан, - сказал Беккер.

Мы идем ко дну. ГЛАВА 120 Шеф отдела обеспечения системной безопасности, тучный мужчина весом за центнер, стоял неподвижно, заложив руки за голову. Он не мог поверить, что дожил до подобной катастрофы.
