354 Total 189 1 Fig. tr data set. The heights of the bars sum to the sample size n. Overall, bar graphs show us how the observed values of a categorical variable in our sample are distributed observed in our sample. The bar graph for variable type (Fig. 5) shows that the possible values are “No” (nondiseased) and “Yes” (diseased). The height of each bar in this graph shows the frequency of the corresponding category. Therefore, the bar heights (frequencies) add up to the total sample size (in this case, n = 200).
19, the mean (solid line) moves toward the outliers or the direction of skewness in the histogram more than the median. Occasionally, we might find situations in which neither the mean nor the median is a good representative of the central tendency. For example, Fig. 20 shows that the mean (solid line) and the median (dashed line) for the WhiteMeat variable do not capture the central tendency of the data. Most observed values in this case are clustered away from the mean and median. This is usually true for bimodal distributions.
10. 4 Exploring Numerical Variables 29 Fig. 12 An example of a symmetric histogram Shapes of Histograms Besides the location and spread of a distribution, the shape of a histogram also shows us how the observed values spread around the location. Consider the histograms shown in Fig. 12. We say that this histogram is symmetric around its location (here, zero) since the densities are the same for any two intervals that are equally distant from the center. In reality, we rarely see perfectly symmetric histograms such as the one shown in Fig.
