Application: Measures of Central Tendency
Measures of central tendency may be familiar to you from
prior math classes you have taken. Consider the summary of these terms below:
The mean is the average of all numbers in a set of
The mode is the number in a dataset that most
frequently occurs.
The median is the number that falls in the middle of
the numbers in a given set when those numbers are placed in rank order.
The standard deviation tells how far the numbers in a
given data set deviate from the mean of that set. In other words, it tells whether
the numbers in the dataset are generally close together or far apart.
These measures are simple but extremely valuable for all
social scientists, including criminal justice researchers. They are summary
statistics, which provide useful information about the study sample and allow
researchers to compare multiple data sets.

For this Application Assignment, use the following statistics:

The total population of the Battawba metropolitan area was 5,604,383 persons in
2011. For that year, the following burglary rates were reported in the
localities within this metropolitan area:

City of Lakeville


City of Drake


City of Valmer


City of Chase Abbey


City of Southmetro


City of Collington


City of Williamson


City of New Batten


The assignment (2–3 pages):
Calculate the mean, median, mode, and standard
deviation for the burglary statistics provided on the metropolitan area of
Explain your interpretation of the measures of
central tendency and standard deviation for burglary rates in the Battawba metropolitan
area (i.e., what they can tell you about who is committing crime and where it
is being committed).
