### How do you calculate absolute frequencies?

Absolute frequencies are calculated by first identifying intervals based on your data and then identifying the number of values within your data set that lie within these interval. Relative frequencies divide the absolute frequencues by the number of values in the set. It is a good practice to provide the absolute frequencies, perhaps in a bar chart of relative frequencies as a number above each bar.

### How do you do an ogive chart?

You will need endpoints of your range (for example age: 12-14, 15-17. The endpoints are 14 and 17). You will also need the cumulative total of the relative frequencies (add all relative frequencies). -To find the relative frequency = value over total (ex, age 12-14, 51 have diabetes, 90 do not. The total of those having diabetes is 3800. So for the relative frequency of ages 12-14, it is 51/3800=0.01342. Do this for all ranges)…
