However, the price of kiwi fruit goes up rapidly over time. Bananas and apples are common fruits purchased frequently by many people, whereas kiwi fruit is an obscure exotic fruit, rarely purchased by a tiny minority of people. In light of this, it is unreasonable to weight all three fruits equally when calculating a price index. e. combining the slow growth of banana and apple prices with the very fast growth of kiwi fruit prices would yield a fruit price index which indicates moderately fast growth).

Later chapters will describe common numerical methods for summarizing the relationship between several variables in greater detail. Here we discuss briefly a few descriptive statistics for summarizing the properties of a single variable. By way of motivation, we will return to the concept of distribution introduced in our discussion on histograms. In our cross-country data set, real GDP per capita varies across the 90 countries. 2, which plots the distribution of GDP per capita across countries.

A minor practical problem with defining the mode in this way is that it can be sensitive to the choice of class intervals. 2, the histogram is highest over the class interval labeled 2000. Remember, that the label 2000 means that the class interval runs from 0 to 2000. Hence, we could say that “the class interval 0 to 2000 is the modal (or most likely) value”. Alternatively, it is common to report the middle value of the relevant class interval as the mode. In this case, we could say, “the mode is $1000”.
