2 Measures of variability It is usually interesting to study the dispersion or variability of a distribution. A simple indicator of variability is the difference between the maximum observed value and the minimum observed value of a certain variable, known as the range. Another index is constructed by taking the difference between the third quartile and the first quartile, the interquartile range (IQR). The range is highly sensitive to extreme observations, but the IQR is a robust measure of spread for the same reason the median is a robust measure of location.

Such values are called quantiles or percentiles. Of particular interest are the quartiles; these correspond to the values which divide the distribution into four equal parts. 75. Note that q2 coincides with the median. 2 Measures of variability It is usually interesting to study the dispersion or variability of a distribution.

Another index is constructed by taking the difference between the third quartile and the first quartile, the interquartile range (IQR).

In some cases, such as a joint analysis of quantitative variables, it acts as the input of the analysis phase. Other cases require pre-analysis phases (preprocessing or data transformation). This leads to tables derived from data matrices. For example, in the joint analysis of qualitative variables, since it is impossible to carry out a quantitative analysis directly on the data matrix, it is a good idea to transform the data matrix into a contingency table. This is a table with as many dimensions as there are qualitative variables considered.
