# What is quartile deviation?

**Quartile Deviation (QD)**

The quartile deviation is half the difference between the upper and lower quartiles in a distribution. It is a measure of the spread through the middle half of a distribution. It can be useful because it is not influenced by extremely high or extremely low scores. Quartile Deviation is an ordinal statistic and is most often used in conjunction with the median.

### Relation between quartile deviation and mean deviation?

mean deviation =(4/5)quartile deviation

### What is mean deviation and why is quartile deviation better than mean deviation?

What is mean deviation and why is quartile deviation better than mean deviation?

### What is the purpose of quartile deviation?

In a data sample, the purpose of quartile deviation is a way to measure data dispersion instead of using the range. The quartile deviation is found by subtracting the lower quartile from the upper quartile, and dividing this result by two.

### What is the formula for coefficient of quartile deviation?

### What is the relation between quartile deviation and standard deviation?

Strictly speaking, none. A quartile deviation is a quick and easy method to get a measure of the spread which takes account of only some of the data. The standard deviation is a detailed measure which uses all the data. Also, because the standard deviation uses all the observations it can be unduly influenced by any outliers in the data. On the other hand, because the quartile deviation ignores the smallest 25% and the largest… Read More

### What is the measure of quartile deviation?

A quartile deviation from some specified value, is the value or values such that a quarter of the observed values fall between these values and the specified value. Usually, but not always, the specified value is the median - the value such that have the observed values are below (and above) it. In that case, one quartile values will have a quarter of the values below it and the other will have a quarter of… Read More

It is not possible to answer without any information on the spread (range, inter-quartile range, mean absolute deviation, standard deviation or variance).

### Uses of quartile deviation?

This helps to show where things may not follow the norm. Quartiles help you to keep data organized and so a deviation would show how it would vary.

### How do you calculate the third quartile for a mean of 110 and a standard deviation of 15?

If this is the only information you have, the answer would be somewhere around 125. Usually, you would find the third quartile by first finding the median. Then find the median of all of the numbers between the median and the largest number, which is the third quartile.

### When to use quartile deviation?

When you are looking for a simple measure of the spread of the data, but one which is protected from the effects of extreme values (outliers).

### Explain the purpose of calculating standard deviation and quartile deviation?

Standard deviation helps planners and administrators to arrive at a figure that could be used to determine a range that can effectively describe a given set of numerical information/data; and based on which a decision concerning a system of those data can be made.

Standard error, standard deviation, variance, range, inter-quartile range as well as measures based on other percentiles.

### Which measure of variation is appropriate when using the mean and which is appropriate when using the median?

When using the mean: the variance or standard deviation. When using the median: the range or inter-quartile range.

### Which value is NOT always a number in the data set it represents?

The range, median, mean, variance, standard deviation, absolute deviation, skewness, kurtosis, percentiles, quartiles, inter-quartile range - take your pick. It would have been simpler to ask which value IS in the data set!

### What is relative measure?

These measures are calculated for the comparison of dispersion in two or more than two sets of observations. These measures are free of the units in which the original data is measured. If the original data is in dollar or kilometers, we do not use these units with relative measure of dispersion. These measures are a sort of ratio and are called coefficients. Each absolute measure of dispersion can be converted into its relative measure… Read More

### Merits and demerits of quartile deviation?

Merits Â· It can be easily calculated and simply understood. Â· It does not involve much mathematical difficulties.

### How do you solve the lower quartile?

A quartile is 1/4 or 25% of the total. So if you the population is 24 (say in a classroom), then a quartile is 6. Sort the grades lowest to highest, then the bottom 6 are in the lower quartile. The grade for #6 is the lower quartile.

### Procedure for calculating quartile deviation for raw data?

procedure: step 1: arrange your raw data in increasing order. step 2: find the Q1 is the size of the (n+1)/4th value. step 3: find the Q3 is the size of the 3(n+1)/4th value. Quartile Deviation(QD)= (Q3-Q1)/2 for example: 87 ,64,74,13,19,27,60,51,53,29,47 is the given data step 1: 13,19,27,29,47,51,53,60,64,74,87 step 2: (n+1)/4=3 therefore Q1=27 step 3: 3(n+1)/4=9 therefore Q3=6 implies QD=18.5

### How determine the first quartile in Excel?

You use the QUARTILE function. You specify the range of cells and which quartile you want. For the first quartile, you use 1. So if your range was the cells A2 to A20, you would enter the function like this: =QUARTILE(A2:A20,1)

### How do you find the inter quartile?

interquartile range is upper quartile (or quartile 3) minus lower quartial ( or quartial 1 ) For example the quartile 3 is 165 and the quartile 1 is 125. The interquartile range is 40. You can go online and see pages. Thank you

Like the standard deviation, the interquartile range (IQR) is a descriptive statistic used to summarize the extent of the spread of your data. The IQR is the distance between the 1st quartile (25th percentile) and 3rd quartile (75th percentile). Q3 - Q1 = IQR To find these numbers you must divide your data set in half, and find the median of each half and that will be your Q1 and Q3. If you have an… Read More
