A distribution describing the rate or frequency of occurrence of a value in a series or population arranged in ascending or descending order.

Method of organizing test scores into mutually exclusive intervals

A distribution in which the values of the dependent variable are tabled or plotted against their frequency of occurrence.

tabular arrangement of score values showing the frequency with which each value occurs (Shavelson, 1996). Keeping score with tally marks for players on a team would show a frequency distribution.

A chart showing the number of times (or "frequency") an event occurs for each possible value of the event. The vertical or y-axis of the chart is the frequency axis and the horizontal or x-axis shows the different values the variable being measured can take.

a count of the number of times each value of a single variable occurs. Thus, the proportion of the population fitting into each of six categories of social class may be given as a frequency distribution. The distribution can be presented in a variety of ways, including for example a raw count, percentages or a pie chart.

An organized display of a set of data that shows how often each different piece of data occurs.

A statistical table that presents a large volume of data in such a way that the central tendency (average/mean/median) and distribution are clearly displayed.

A specification of the way in which the frequencies of members of a population are distributed according to the values of the variables which they exhibit. For observed data, the distribution is usually specified in tabular form, with some grouping for continuous variables.

A table, graph or function indicating the frequency of occurrence of particular values of a variable.

a frequency distribution typically shows what percent of respondents gave which responses to a given question: for example, 32% of respondents were Catholic, 23% were Protestant, 6% were Hindu, 8% were other, and 31% had no religious affiliation.

The arrangement of data into groups according to the frequency with which they appear in the data set.

Ordered display of data categories or values along the horizontal axis and display of frequency or count accruing at each data point on the vertical axis. [See continuous distribution, discrete distribution, Matthew distribution, Pareto distribution, probability distribution

a distribution of observed frequencies of occurrence of the values of a variable

a description of data presented in tabular form so the data will be more manageable

an arrangement of a group of numbers in a pattern that shows how frequently each occurs

an arrangement of statistical data in order of the frequency of each size or value of the variable

an organized tabulation of the number of individual scores located in each category on the scale of measurement

a procedure for describing a set of data

a table that organizes data into classes

a table that shows the number of data observations that fall into specified classes or intervals

a table which shows how many times each particular value or item occurs in the sample data

a tabular arrangement of data whereby the data is grouped into different intervals, and then the number of observations that belong to each interval is determined

a tabulation of the number of times that each different value appears in a particular set of values

a way of organizing and arranging data in a table

A tabulation of scores from high to low, or low to high, showing the number of individuals who obtain each score or whose scores fall in each score interval. Frequency distributions are used to determine tables of percentile ranks.

A complete summary of the frequencies of the values or categories of a variable; often displayed in a two column table: the left column lists the individual values or categories, the right column indicates the number of observations in each category.

A frequency distribution shows the number of observations falling into each of several ranges of values. Frequency distributions are portrayed as frequency tables, histograms or polygons.

A distribution of the count of cases corresponding to the attributes of an observed variable.

An arrangement in which scores are tabulated by how often they occur.

A graph of the levels of a variable against the frequency of each level. For example, a frequency plot of scores on a memory test could consist of a graph of the number of participants that scored each possible score of the test.

An ordered tabulation of individual scores (or groups of scores) showing the number of persons who obtained each score or placed within each range of scores.

The organization of data to show how often certain values or ranges of values occur.

In a set of numerical observations, the list of values that occur along with the frequency of their occurrence. It may be set up as a frequency table or as a graph.

An organization of data, usually in a chart, which depicts how often an different events occur. A histogram is one common type of frequency distribution, and a frequency polygon is another.

a statistical concept, an arrangement of data to show the number of times an event occurs in a particular way. For example, in the owl pellets lesson 2.1, we are developing a frequency distribution which shows the number of times dissected owl pellets contain different numbers of skulls.

analysis method that involves determining how often scores or values appear in a data set.

In statistics, a frequency distribution is a list of the values that a variable takes in a sample. It is usually a list, ordered by quantity, showing the number of times each value appears.
