2. As you can see, along the X axis we plot the values of the variable X and along the Y axis the frequencies for each interval. The height of the bar again corresponds to the number of frequencies for a particular value of X. This figure represents an ungrouped histogram as the interval size is 1. That is, along the X axis the midpoint of each bar is the midpoint of the interval, the bar begins on the left at the lower real limit of the interval, the bar ends on the right at the upper real limit, and the bar is 1 unit wide.

If we simply doubled the commissi ons for 2000 as an estimate, we would see an increase rather than a decrease in commissions. Accurate labeling of all axes is essential. The overall message then is to present an accurate representation of the data in every graph. Distorting data, in graphical or any other form, to indicate a particular point of view, is statistically unethical. , don't hide the data in the scales), and (c) all axes be properly labeled. PERCENTILES In this section we consider several concepts and the necessary computations related to the area of percentiles, including percentiles, quartiles, percentile ranks, and the box-and-whisker plot.

This is done by comparing the values ofthe quartiles as follows. If (Q3 - Q2) > (Q2 - QI)' then the distribution of scores is positively skewed as the scores are more spread out at the high end of the distribution and more bunched up at the low end of the distribution (remember the shapes of the distributions from Fig. 5). If (Q3 - Q2) < (Q2 - Ql)' then the distribution of scores is negatively skewed as the scores are more spread out at the low end of the distribution and more bunched up at the high end of the distribution.
