Coefficient of variation
Sample-> CY=s/x

1. A relative measure of dispersion
2. Adjusts for differences in magnitudes of the means.
3. Does not have units of measure
4. Allows for direct comparisons of mean-adjusted dispersion across different data sets.

Percentiles and quartiles

Coefficient of determination
The proportion of variation in the dependent variable ”explained” by the independent variable.

(Correlation coefficient)^2=r^2
R=0.90
(0.90)^2=0.81

Ex. Monthly income how much u spend on grocery, coefficient of determination 81%of your grocery billi being
19:% is not being explained(for reason we don’t know)
Maybe holiday month, having food, people….etc
Unexplained situation

CV fund 1 S/x=1.51
CV fund 2 S/x=1.30
Conclusion: Fund1 has greater relative dispersion than fund2

Be familiar with the terms (different types of collect data) 1) Direct observation
2) Experiments
3) Survey
4) Telephone interviews
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Slope rise/run, y/x
B1=2.25 2.25/1 = y/x
Every 1 unit 2.25 cents

B1=0.3 0.3/1=y/x
Slope intercept b0=9.5

Data collection
1) Simple random sampling everyone has equal chance)
2) Stratified random sample (is supposed to be the most precise sampling, it doesn’t always work that way) Ex. 2008 election year, elected Obama, stratified sample it picked Obama as the winner, Hilary Clinton 3%, ex. 4 men 4 women

how? Divide take random sample

a cluster sample (save you money when u got large group to do it) Ex. Government use
randomly select some zip code
randomly selec out of my zip code
from this to that will do simple random sample
convenient sample
