I found the concept on frequency distribution using Google and the search words “frequency distribution” at http://www.mathsisfun.com/data/frequencydistribution.html This website is geared towards younger people and therefore breaks down frequency distribution into very basic terms: values and their frequency (how often each value occurs). The website uses the example of a child’s soccer team and how many goals they scored in recent games. For the assignment this week, I have chosen to use the raw data of shoe sizes of my coworkers and how often these shoe sizes occur and show how to put them into a frequency distribution table. Because there are only 4 females in my division, I have stuck with only the male shoe sizes of 20 coworkers. Raw Data
101291011
81011109
98111010
121091011
Each raw data value is now placed into a class. Since my range of data is small, I’m going to use single data values. Distribution Table

Total: 20
This can also be done in excel by following the instructions for a categorical frequency table for qualitative or discrete data on page 215 (49) of our textbook. Taking it a step forward, the information can then be used in a pie chart to visually see the frequency of each shoe size.
...Statistics:
• Science of gathering, analyzing, interpreting, and presenting data
• Measurement taken on a sample
• Type of distribution being used to analyze data
Descriptive statistics:
Using data gathered on a group to describe or reach conclusions about that same group only. Descriptive statistics are the tabular, graphical, and numerical methods used to summarize data.
Collect, organize, summarize, display, analyze

FIRST STEP: Under the Transform menu, choose Visual Binning… This
command assists you in creating a new variable that groups the data. You
will then use the new variable to create a grouped frequencydistribution.

Frequency polygons are a graphical device for
understanding the shapes of distributions. They
serve the same purpose as histograms, but are
especially helpful for comparing sets of data.
Frequency polygons are also a good choice for
displaying cumulative frequencydistributions.

...FREQUENCYDISTRIBUTION
WHAT IT IS Frequencydistributions summarize and compress data by grouping it into classes and recording how many data points fall into each class. That is, they show how many observations on a given variable have a particular attribute. For example, a survey is taken of 50 people's favorite color. The frequencydistribution might indicate 15 people selected green, 12 blue, 6 red, 7...
