Cleaning Data: Check for mistakes and anomalies by:
Undertaking frequency plots:
Reveals data outside of expected range
e.g., outliers
Reveals data with impossible values
e.g., gender coded as: 1 = male; 2 = female thus 3 = data entry error
Re-enter a set of data randomly

e. Determine if there are any outliers within the data set. Ifthere is an outlier, state its value(s).
f. Find the z score of each outlier if any exists and interpret theirrelativeposition in terms of standard deviations.
g. Explain what effect an outlier, if any exists, has on the mean...

(b) check for missing values, and deciding how to deal with the missing values.
(c) check for outliers, and deciding how to deal with outliers.
(d) check for normality, and deciding how to deal with non-normality.

data errors but not irrelevant objects. To reduce both types of noise there are three traditional outlier detection techniques distance-based, clustering-based, and an approach based on the Local Outlier Factor (LOF) of an object. In this paper we introduce a new method for noise reduction using polynomial...
a linear regression analysis, the following assumptions must be met: a linear relationship is present between the two variables and no significant outliers or influential points are present. This can be test with a scatterplot. (Figure 1) Although a relation is present, it is not linear. Instead it reflects...

The data presented offers a look at four data sets including opening gross income, total gross income, number of theaters, and weeks in the top...

Outliers Review
Outliers The Story of Success is a nonfiction book written by Malcolm Gladwell which examines the factors that stand behind and contribute to high level of success of different individuals. Outliers, which Gladwell wrote in 2008 after the huge success of...

Do these data contain an outlier? If so, drop the outlier and recalculate all the measures. Which of these measures changes by a larger amount when you drop the outlier?
Which is the better measure of center for these data, the mean or the median...

Part 2 Box Plot Analysis
First, we grouped the data to 4 parts, Jan, Feb, March and April. Then we analyzed each group’s outliers and did the box plot. Then we combined all the groups and did box plot analysis.

Outlier Essay: Martin Luther King Jr.
An outlier is a person or thing situated away or detached from the main body or system. In other words, an outlier is somebody who goes out of his or her way and does something extraordinary in order to accomplish their goal. Martin Luther King Jr. is a true example...

This shows us the outliers very clearly. We have the mild outliers as well as extreme outliers.
Mild outliers are between 23000000 and 29000000. Extreme outliers are between 37000000 and 120000000.
Looking at the data, Chesapeake Energy and Motorala are the major outliers in the higher range of...

In other words, an outlier is a person who goes out of their way and does something no one thought was possible for them to do. Many people in the book Outliers by Malcolm Gladwell did things that people thought weren’t...

This outlier was Mr. Eisner of Walt Disney, whom had a compensation that far exceeded the rest of the CEO’s. In addition...
