Topic: Interquartile range


In the News (Sun 16 Jun 19)

  
  Stats: What is an interquartile range?
The interquartile range (IQR) is the distance between the 75
The IQR is essentially the range of the middle 50% of the data.
Select halfway between the 11th and 12th observations (4.80 and 5.26) and halfway between the 3rd and 4th observations (3.49 and 3.68).

 Interquartile range - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In descriptive statistics, the interquartile range (IQR) is the difference between the third and first quartiles and is a measure of statistical dispersion.
The interquartile range is a more stable statistic than the range, and is often preferred to that statistic.
The interquartile mean is a measure of central tendency.

 Semi-Interquartile Range
The semi-interquartile range is a measure of spread or dispersion.
Since half the scores in a distribution lie between Q3 and Q1, the semi-interquartile range is 1/2 the distance needed to cover 1/2 the scores.
The semi-interquartile range is little affected by extreme scores, so it is a good measure of spread for skewed distributions.

 Learning Resources: Statistics: Power from Data! Range and quartiles
The range is an informative tool used as a supplement to other measures such as the standard deviation or semi-interquartile range, but it should rarely be used as the only measure of spread.
The interquartile range is another range used as a measure of the spread.
The interquartile range spans 50% of a data set, and eliminates the influence of outliers because, in effect, the highest and lowest quarters are removed.

As with the mean and the standard deviation, distributions can also be described by the median and a range of fractiles around the median.
The interquartile range (IQR) in particular is used to describe the dispersion of the data.
The interquartile range (IQR) is defined as the range between the first and the third quartile.

In descriptive statistics the interquartile range (IQR) is the difference between the third first quartiles.
The interquartile range is a more statistic than the range and is usually preferred to that
Since 25% of the data are less or equal to the first quartile and are greater than or equal to the quartile the difference is the length of interval that includes about half of the This difference should be measured in the units as the data.

 Variability
The interquartile range (IQR) is a range that contains the middle 50% of the scores in a distribution.
For Quiz 1, the 75th percentile is 8 and the 25th percentile is 6.
Using this terminology, the interquartile range is referred to as the H-spread.

 [No title]
The interquartile range is the distance between the 1st and 3rd quartiles (25th and 75th percentiles).
The range is a crude measure of variability which is only effected by changes to two scores but if one of those changes drastically, the range is also drastically changed even though the rest of the distribution is unchanged.
The interquartile range and semi-interquartile range are compromises between the crudeness of the range and the over-sensitivity of the standard deviation.

The range for any set of data measured on ordinal scales on up is just the maximum score minus the minimum score.
For qualitative variables measured on nominal scales the range is the number of categories having at least one entry.
By definition the semi-interquartile range is half the interquartile range, or half the height of the box.

Concentration is measured as the number of bins (converted to the appropriate time or frequency units) needed to accumulate a fraction P of the total signal energy in the sorted energy distribution.
Lower-upper skewness measures the asymmetry of the lower-upper range in relation to the median of the straight distribution.
As with the percentile measures (median, interquartile range, and percentile skewness), the concentration, lower-upper range, and lower-upper skewness can be measured for each short-time spectrum and narrow-band envelope composing the spectrogram, generating the corresponding time or frequency contours.

 Reading Statistics and Research (Schuyler Huck): Student Help
Because of its name, the semi-interquartile range is thought to be something horrid by many, many students who are taking their first course in statistics.
Thus, it is like a range, a standard deviation, or a variance in that it measures the degree of "spread" among a group of scores.
Like other measures of variability, the SIQR will be 0 if all the scores are the same; it will be larger than zero to the extent that the scores are spread out from each other.

 Range   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-26)
The range of a set of numbers is from the minimum value to the maximum.
Whilst this provides the extent of the data, it may not be a "robust" measure as the extreme values may be "rogues" or "outliers" and not representative of the object of study.
The interquartile range indicates the "typical" condition where the windspeed will be betwenn 7.3 and 11.0 for 50% of the time.

 Interquartile mean - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The interquartile mean (IQM) is a statistical measure of central tendency, much like the mean (in more popular terms called the average), the median, and the mode.
The IQM is a truncated mean and so is very similar to the scoring method used in sports that are evaluated by a panel of judges: discard the lowest and the highest scores; calculate the mean value of the remaining scores.
Like the median, the IQM is insensitive to outliers; in the example given, the highest value (38) was an obvious outlier of the dataset, but its value is not used in the calculation of the IQM.

The range is the simplest measure of dispersion to calculate.
Another disadvantage of using the range as a measure of dispersion is that its calculation is based on two values only: the largest and the smallest.

When summarising a dataset, at least two measures are needed - one to locate the dataset and another to indicate the spread of the data.
