### Summarizing data with Frequency Tables & Histograms

There are two ways to describe a data set (sample from a population) - Pictorial Graphs or Tables of Numbers. Both are important for analyzing data.

### Definitions

- A
**frequency distribution**is a display of the number (frequency) of occurrences of each value in a data set. - A
**relative frequency**distribution is a display of the percent (ratio or frequency to sample-size) of occurrences of each value in a data set.

### Example

Stage of disease at diagnosis of breast cancer in a random sample of US women.

Stage | Frequency | Relative Frequency |
---|---|---|

0 | 197 | 0.09 |

I | 691 | 0.33 |

II | 703 | 0.34 |

III | 314 | 0.15 |

IV | 187 | 0.09 |

Total | 2092 | 1.00 |
