Using “Mode” as a Measures of Central Tendency
In this article we will discuss the Mode of the Distribution
The mode is a measure of central tendency that represents the most frequently observed value or range of values in a set of data. If there are two separate values that appear most often, the set is said to be “Bi-modal”.
When to use the Mode as a measure of central tendency?
The mode is useful when the set of data:
- has more than one segment (or multi modal)
- is badly skewed, or
- it is necessary to eliminate the effect of extreme values.
If you have any examples of using the Mode as a measure of central tendency, please tell us in the comments below.
