Standard deviation for grouped data, Applied Statistics

Grouped data 

For grouped data, the formula applied is  σ = 1926_standard dviation for grouped data.png

Where f = frequency of the variable, μ= population mean.

Example 17

 

A security analyst studied hundred companies and obtained the following Return on Investment (ROI) data for the year 20x3.

Returns %

0-10

10-20

20-30

30-40

No. of companies

19

32

41

8

We can find how the ROI of the company varies with the mean ROI by calculating the standard deviations for the above data.

The steps involved are:

  • Find mean for grouped data.

  • Find deviations from mean for grouped data.

  • Find squares of the above deviations.

  • Total the squared deviations taking frequency into account.

  •  Calculate square root.

Standard Deviation

775_standard dviation for grouped data2.png
  = 309_standard dviation for grouped data3.png =8.81%

Thus, the standard deviation for the return on investment is 8.8%.

In such a calculation, we always assume that all the observations in a class interval are located at the mid-point of the class. For example, the first class interval has mid-point 5 and frequency 19. Hence the assumption is that all the 19 companies have an ROI of exactly 5%.
