Once V has been obtained, we may conclude that the standard deviation is V% of the mean. ” So, given distributions A and B, we compute V for each. Then the distribution with the smaller V value has a greater degree of uniformity or homogeneity among its values (or the distribution with the larger V has a greater degree of variability or heterogeneity among its values). 1 Is there more variation among incomes received by nurses affiliated with a certain large urban hospital (distribution A) or a group of private practice nurses (distribution B)?

99, corresponds to the point below which j% of the observations on X are found and above which (100 − j)% of the data points lie. If the values of X are arranged in an increasing sequence, then by an appropriate choice of j, we may easily specify a given percentile, quartile, or decile. That is: (a) The positional locations of the various quartiles are: Q1 at and Q3 at 3(N+1) 4 N+1 , 4 Q2 at N+1 , 2 j(N+1) , j = 1, . . , 9 10 j(N+1) Pj at 100 , j = 1, . . 3 Let us find P20 given X : 3, 8, 8, 6, 7, 9, 5, 10, 11, 20, 19, 15, 11, 16.
