In a certain town the monthly figures o(unemployed during the years 1960 to 1969 produced the following cumulative frequency distribution: Unemployed 200 300 400 500 or more , , , Months Unemployed Months 120 112 79 42 600 or more 700 , 800 , 16 3 2 Convert this to a percentage cumulative frequency table, draw an ogive and use it to tabulate (as in Question 5) the following: lowest decile, lower quartile, median, upper quartile, highest decile.

1 1. What are the true class limits in the following cases?

This is the modal class. Similarly the class in which the median occurs is the median class. The objection may be put that there should be more classes and that this would narrow the range in which the mode and median might be found. This however would lead to smaller frequencies in more classes, with the possible result that a single mode might not appear at all. Look at this distribution. x f I 2 2 3 3 4 4 3 5 5 6 6 7 8 2 0 9 3 II 4 13 I 16 2 The mode is 6 since this value occurs 6 times out of the total frequency of 35.
