Data Analysis Check-up

So, here are the concepts:

1. "Averages" After visiting the mean, median, and mode links, use your browser's back button to return to this page.

2.

3.

Here is some data and a line plot to help point out some more of the concepts that must be understood.

4. **Outliers** = data values that are substantially larger or smaller than the other values.

In my example, California has 52 representatives. This number of representatives

is very different from the rest.

5. **Gaps**** ** = large spaces between points.

In my example, there is a gap between the two states that have around 30

representatives (New York and Texas) and California with 52 representatives.

6. **Clusters** = isolated groups of points.

In my example, most of the states seem to have between 2 and 12 representatives

= cluster.

7. **Extremes** = The highest and lowest values of a data set.

In my example, many states have two representatives but no states have less

than 2. So, 2 is one of my extremes. The high extreme is California with 52

representatives.
