About This Chapter
Categorical Data Representation - Chapter Summary
Our instructors introduce some of the different ways to represent categorical data in these fun lessons. You'll learn about some of the ways to show the results of survey data, including two-way tables and contingency tables. Lessons also cover stacked bar charts and how to best analyze categorical data. Once you complete this chapter, you should be able to:
- Define categorical data
- Understand some of the different ways to group and measure data
- Identify situations where a frequency table is useful
Even the most challenging subjects are easy to understand with the video lessons and quizzes provided here. You can watch an entire video or use the video tabs feature to review only those topics you need to work on. For handy study anywhere, use the printable lesson transcripts to highlight key topics and words. Our instructors are available to assist you if you get stuck as you work through the lessons.
1. What is Categorical Data? - Definition & Examples
Categorical data is one of two types of data that you can collect when conducting research. This lesson will teach you how to understand and use categorical data.
2. Nominal, Ordinal, Interval & Ratio Measurements: Definition & Examples
Different types of data can be grouped and measured in different ways. In this lesson, you will learn about nominal, ordinal, interval, and ratio measurements.
3. What is a Two-Way Table?
Do you believe in Martians? Do you watch football on television? A Two-Way Table or Contingency Table is a great way to show the results of all kinds of survey questions. In this video we will learn how to read a two-way table.
4. What is a Frequency Table? - Definition & Examples
In this lesson, learn what a frequency table is and view a few examples of situations in which frequency tables would be useful. Then, test your knowledge with a brief quiz.
5. What is a Stacked Bar Chart?
A stacked bar chart is a visual representation of data. In this lesson, you will learn how to recognize stacked bar charts and explore examples of their practical uses. A brief quiz is included to allow you to test your understanding.
6. Statistical Analysis with Categorical Data
Learn why percentages are so important when analyzing categorical data in this video lesson. Watch as the data is turned into a data table and a visual bar graph as ways to analyze the data.
