Resistant Measures

Discussion Board – Resistant Measures

Create a small dataset of at least 5 observations and calculate the mean, median, mode, range, IQR and standard deviation (use Excel or StatCrunch). Add an outlier to your data and recalculate these measures. Which changed and by how much? Explain how this illustrates the idea of resistant measures. Please provide the data that you made up and the measures for your data before and after you added an outlier. Organizing the data into a table would be a great way to display all of this information.
