What is the Center in a Data Set? - Definition & Options

1. What is the Center in a Data Set? - Definition & Options

Finding the center in a data set can sometimes be a little confusing. This lesson will help you determine the correct method for finding the center in a data set, and when you are finished, test your knowledge with a short quiz!

Mean, Median & Mode: Measures of Central Tendency

2. Mean, Median & Mode: Measures of Central Tendency

By describing the data using central tendency, a researcher and reader can understand what the typical score looks like. In this lesson, we will explore in more detail these measures of central tendency and how they relate to samples and populations.

How to Calculate Mean, Median, Mode & Range

3. How to Calculate Mean, Median, Mode & Range

Measures of central tendency can provide valuable information about a set of data. In this lesson, explore how to calculate the mean, median, mode and range of any given data set.

Calculating the Mean, Median, Mode & Range: Practice Problems

4. Calculating the Mean, Median, Mode & Range: Practice Problems

Calculating the mean, median, mode, and range of a data set is a fundamental part of learning statistics. Use this video to practice your skills and then test your knowledge with a short quiz.

Spread in Data Sets: Definition & Example

5. Spread in Data Sets: Definition & Example

Identifying the spread in data sets is a very important part of statistics. You can do this several ways, but the most common methods are through range, interquartile range, and variance.

Population & Sample Variance: Definition, Formula & Examples

6. Population & Sample Variance: Definition, Formula & Examples

Population and sample variance can help you describe and analyze data beyond the mean of the data set. In this lesson, learn the differences between population and sample variance.
