2. What is nominal data?

  • Where you rank items that you measure depending on which has a more or less of an influence that we want to measure. Intervals are not necessarily equal and there is not true zero point
  • Where you allocate a score to a category and it indicates a group of data
  • Where there are equal intervals of data on a continuous numerical scale, eg: farenheit
  • Where there are equal intervals between the data and an absolute zero, eg: time

3. Which statistic is more sensitive to extreme values?

  • The mode and not the mean or median
  • The mean and not the median or mode
  • The median and not the range or mode
  • The range and not the median or mode

4. Which is not a characteristic of a histogram?

  • The legend that shows the sample size, mean and standard deviation
  • The x axis shows the bins of nominal data
  • The y axis shows the bins of nominal data
  • The y axis shows how many data points fall in each bin

5. Which statement is incorrect about confidence intervals?

  • The 95% is more wider than the 99%
  • As the range/interval gets wider we get more confident that the real values lie within the range
  • There are many different confidence intervals where they have own level of confidence attached
  • 99%
  • 95%
