The following table shows the LOS for a sample of eleven discharged patients. Using
the data from this table, calculate the mean, range, variance, and standard
deviation. Then answer as well questions a and f
Patient Patient Length of Stays(days)
a) Mean =
b) Range =
c) Variance =
d) Standard Deviation =
e) What value is affecting the mean and standard deviation of this sample?
f) Does this mean adequately represent this distribution? If not, what would be a
better measure of central tendency for this data set?
