### How to interpret interquartile range?

– A dispersion indicator: the length of the interval **interquartile** which contains the central half of the values of the series. More I’**interquartile range** is small, the more the central values of the series are concentrated around the median. It is easy to **to interpret**.

### What is Mean Absolute Deviation?

In statistics, the mean absolute deviation (or simply mean deviation) of a set is the mean (or predicted value) of the absolute deviations from a central point in a statistical series. It is a summary statistic of statistical dispersion or variability, and it can be associated with any…

### How to calculate the mean absolute deviation of a set from a real one?

The average absolute deviation of a set with respect to a real x is defined by The choice of measurement of the central tendency x has a marked effect on the value of the average deviation. For example, for the set {2, 2, 3, 4, 14}, taking as measures the mean, the median and the mode, we obtain.

### How to calculate absolute deviation of an element?

Absolute deviation [ modifier | modifier le code] The absolute deviation of an element a of a data set x with respect to a real x is |a – x| . Typically the real x from which the deviation is measured is a measure of central tendency, such as the value of the mean, a median or a mode of the data set.

### What is the mean absolute deviation from a median?

In particular, the mean absolute deviation of a median is less than or equal to the mean absolute deviation of the mean and the absolute deviation of the mode. The average absolute deviation from the mean is greater than or equal to the standard deviation.
