Essay Questions

Question 1.

What is the relationship between Economics and Statistics? [March 18, 16]

Answer:

There is a close relationship between statistics and economics. In the words of Tugwell “The science of economics is becoming statistical in its method”. All economic laws are pronounced on the basis of statistical facts and figures. The theory of the population of Malthus, the law of family expenditure of Engels, etc., were propounded after statistical tests. Statistics help economics to become an exact science.

In the study of theoretical economics, the application and use of statistical methods are of great importance. Most of the doctrines of economics are based on the study of a large number of units and their analysis. This is done through statistical methods. The Law of demand was formulated because of statistical methods.

The importance of statistics is felt in all branches of knowledge- in accountancy and auditing in banking, in insurance in research, and many fields. Without statistics no branch of knowledge is complete.

Question 2.

Explain the Geometric diagrams. What are Bar diagrams and Pie diagrams ?

Answer:

Diagrams are more suitable to illustrate the data which is discrete, while continuous data is better represented by graphs.

BAR DIAGRAM and PIE DIAGRAM come in the category of geometric diagrams.

The bar diagram are 3 types. Simple, Multiple and Component bar diagrams.

Simple Bar Diagrams : Bar diagrams are very commonly used and is better for representation of quantitative data. Bars are simply

corresponding numerical values.

Ex: Maximum temperature recorded in Hyderabad in the 1st six months in a year in a bar diagram.

Multiple Bar Diagram : Multiple bar diagrams are used for comparing two or more sets of data.

Ex : The multiple bar diagram depicts the number of students in a college studying two foreign languages, French and German for the period 1960 – 2010 is given below.

Component Bar Diagram : Component bar diagram charts also called sub-divided bar diagram, are very useful in comparing the sizes of different component parts.

Ex : Enrolment at primary level in a district of Bihar. Boys, girls and total children in the given age group are denoted in the component bar diagram is given below.

Pie – Diagram : This diagram enables us to show the partitioning of total into component parts. It is also called a pie chart.

Ex : Draw the pie digram for following data.

Total area = 16 + 24 + 10 + 8 + 5 = 63

Area changed into Degrees =

Paddy =\(\frac{16 \times 360}{63}\) = 91°

Wheat = \(\frac{24 \times 360}{63}\) = 137°

Maize = \(\frac{10 \times 360}{63}\) = 57°

Jower = \(\frac{8 \times 360}{63}\) = 46°

Millets = \(\frac{5 \times 360}{63}\) = 29°

Total = 360°

Question 3.

Calculate the AM in direct method of the following data.

Answer:

\(\overline{\mathrm{X}}=\frac{\Sigma \mathrm{fx}}{\mathrm{N}}\)

Where N is total frequency

Σfx = 7160; N = 200

\(\overline{\mathrm{X}}\) = \(\frac{7160}{200}\) = 35.8

∴ \(\overline{\mathrm{X}}\) = 35.8

Question 4.

Calculate the A.M. in Direct method.

Answer:

\(\overline{\mathrm{X}}=\frac{\Sigma \mathrm{fx}}{\mathrm{N}}\)

\(\overline{\mathrm{X}}\) = \(\frac{3300}{100}\) = 33

∴ \(\overline{\mathrm{X}}\) = 33

Question 5.

Calculate the A.M. in Deviation method or Shortcut method.

Answer:

Here class interval (C) = 10

Assumed mean = 55

A.M. (or) \(\overline{\mathrm{X}}\) = A + \(\frac{1}{N}\) Σfiμi × C

= 55 + \(\frac{1}{90}\) (-44) × 10

= 55 + (-4.8)

∴ \(\overline{\mathrm{X}}\) = 50.2

Question 6.

Answer:

Calculation of Mean :

\(\overline{\mathrm{X}}\) = \(\frac{\Sigma \text { fixi }}{\mathrm{N}}=\frac{4530}{100}\) = 45.3

∴ \(\overline{\mathrm{X}}\) = 45.3

Calculation of Median :

Here N = 100; \(\frac{\mathrm{N}}{2}\) = \(\frac{100}{2}\) = 50

50^{th} value included in the cumulative frequency 40-49 class intervals. But here class intervals are unequal. So we can adjust that lower limit is \(\frac{39+40}{2}=\frac{79}{2}\) = 39.5.

F = 31; f = 38, C = 10

Median = L + \(\left[\frac{\frac{N}{2}-F}{f}\right]\) × C

Median = 39.5 + \(\left[\frac{50-31}{38}\right]\) × 10

= 39.5 + \(\left[\frac{19}{38}\right]\) × 10

= 39.5 + 0.5 × 10

= 39.5 + 5

= 44.5

∴ Median = 44.5

Calculation of Mode:

Here the maximum frequency occurs in 40 – 49 class.

f = 38; f_{1} = 16; f_{2} = 15; C = 10

L = \(\frac{39+40}{2}=\frac{79}{2}\) = 39.5 (Lower boundary of the model class)

Mode = L + \(\left[\frac{f-f_1}{2 f-f_1+f_2}\right]\) × C

= 39.5 + \(\left[\frac{38-16}{2(38)-(16+15)}\right]\) × 10

= 39.5 + \(\left[\frac{22}{76-31}\right]\) × 10

= 39.5 + 0.48 × 10

= 39.5 + 4.5

Mode = 44.38

Short Answer Questions

Solve the problems for the following datas.

Question 1.

Calculate the Median for the following data.

Answer:

Here N = 100 ; \(\frac{\mathrm{N}}{2}=\frac{50}{2}\) = 25

25^{th} value included in the cumulative frequency 21-30 class intervals.

Lower limit = \(\frac{20+21}{2}=\frac{41}{2}\) = 20.5

F = 15; f = 16; C = 10 N

Median = L + \(\left[\frac{\frac{N}{2}-F}{f}\right]\) × C

Median = 20.5 + \(\left(\frac{25-15}{16}\right)\) × 10

= 20.5 + \(\left(\frac{10}{16}\right)\) × 10

= 20.5 + 0.62 × 10

= 20.5 + 6.25 = 26.75

Median = 26.75

Question 2.

Calculate the Median for the following data.

Answer:

Here N = 125 ; \(\frac{\mathrm{N}}{2}=\frac{125}{2}\) = 62.5

65^{th} value included in the cumulative frequency 7.6

Therefore 30 – 40 in the median class

65^{th} value appears in 30 – 40 class.

Lower limit = 30; F = 40; f = 36; C = 10 N

Median = L + \(\left[\frac{\frac{N}{2}-F}{f}\right]\) × C

Median = 30 + \(\left(\frac{62.5-40}{36}\right)\) × 10

= 30 + \(\left(\frac{22.5}{36}\right)\) × 10

= 30 + 0.625 × 10

= 30 + 6.25

= 36.25

Question 3.

Calculate the Mode for the following data.

Answer:

Here the maximum frequency occurs in 59 – 60 class.

L = \(\frac{59+60}{2}=\frac{119}{2}\) = 59.5

f = 31, f_{1} = 20; f_{2} = 17; C = 10

Mode = L + \(\left[\frac{f-f_1}{2(f)-\left(f_1+f_2\right)}\right]\) × C

= 59.5 + \(\left[\frac{31-20}{2(31)-20+17}\right]\) × 10

= 59.5 + \(\left(\frac{11}{62-37}\right)\) × 10

= 59.5 + \(\left(\frac{11}{25}\right)\) × 10

= 59.5 + 0.44 × 10

= 59.5 + 4.4

= 63.9

Question 6.

Find Median from the following data.

10, 15, 18, 21, 25, 30, 35

Answer:

Arrange asscending order

10, 15, 48, 21, 25, 30, 35

Median = \(\left(\frac{N+1}{2}\right)^{\text {th }}\) item

= \(\left(\frac{7+1}{2}\right)^{\text {th }}\) item = \(\left(\frac{8}{2}\right)^{\text {th }}\) item = 4^{th} item

4^{th} item = 21

∴ Median = 21

Question 7.

Find median from the following data.

Answer:

Where \(\) = 32.5 it lies in the 20 – 30 class interval.

So lower limit = 20; F = 15; f = 18; N = 65; C = 10

Median = L + \(\left[\frac{\frac{N}{2}-F}{f}\right]\) × C

= 20 + \(\left[\frac{32.5-15}{18}\right]\) × 10

= 20 + 9.722 = 29.72

∴ Median = 29.72

Question 8.

Find the mode when median is 125.6 and mean is 128

Answer:

Mode = 3 Median – 2 Mean

= (3 × 125.6) – (2 × 128)

= 376.8 – 256

= 120.8
