Page 1 FREQUENCY DISTRIBUTION Page 2 FREQUENCY DISTRIBUTION INTRODUCTION â€¢ In statistics, a frequency distribution is a table that displays the frequency of various outcomes in a sample. Each entry in the table contains the frequency or count of the occurrences of values within a particular group or interval, and in this way, the table summarizes the distribution of values in the sample. â€¢ A frequency distribution shows us a summarized grouping of data divided into mutually exclusive classes and the number of occurrences in a class. It is a way of showing unorganized data. e.g. to show results of an election, income of people for a certain region, sales of a product within a certain period, student loan amounts of graduates, etc. Some of the graphs that can be used with frequency distributions are histograms, line charts, bar charts and pie charts. Frequency distributions are used for both qualitative and quantitative data. 2 Page 3 FREQUENCY DISTRIBUTION INTRODUCTION â€¢ In statistics, a frequency distribution is a table that displays the frequency of various outcomes in a sample.
