• ### Lecture Statistical techniques in business and economics - Chapter 3: Describing Data: measures of central tendency

When you have completed this chapter, you will be able to: Calculate the arithmetic mean, the weighted mean, the median, the mode, and the geometric mean of a given data set; identify the relative positions of the arithmetic mean, median and mode for both symmetric and skewed distributions; point out the proper uses and common misuses of each measure; explain your choice of the measure of central tendency of data; explain your choice of the measure of central tendency of data.

A: Basically, statistics is the “science of data.” There are three main tasks in statistics: (A) collection and organization, (B) analysis, and (C) interpretation of data. (A) Collection and organization of data: We will see several methods of organizing data: graphically (through the use of charts and graphs) and numerically (through the use of tables of data). The type of organization we do depends on the type of analysis we wish to perform.

• ### Section III - Drugs Acting on the Central Nervous System

Drugs that act upon the central nervous system (CNS) influence the lives of everyone, every day. These agents are invaluable therapeutically because they can produce specific physiological and psychological effects. Without general anesthetics, modern surgery would be impossible. Drugs that affect the CNS can selectively relieve pain, reduce fever, suppress disordered movement, induce sleep or arousal, reduce the desire to eat, or allay the tendency to vomit. Selectively acting drugs can be used to treat anxiety, mania, depression, or schizophrenia and do so without altering consciousness....

• ### Monetary Policy, Leverage, and Bank Risk-Taking∗

The second result underlines the interest of a two-factor model rather than a one factor model to represent the stochastic dynamics of interest rates. For example, Balduzzi, Das and Foresi (1998) show the presence of a stochastic central tendency in the dynamics of the short and long term interest rates which explains that the level of the short rate is not the only relevant variable to describe its conditional mean.

• ### Statistical Description of Data part 2

610 Chapter 14. Statistical Description of Data In the other category, model-dependent statistics, we lump the whole subject of ﬁtting data to a theory, parameter estimation, least-squares ﬁts, and so on. Those subjects are introduced in Chapter 15. Section 14.1 deals with so-called measures of central tendency, the moments of a distribution, the median and mode. In §14.2 we learn to test whether different data sets are drawn from distributions with different values of these measures of central tendency. This leads naturally, in §14.
