- 2. MODE 1 Mode is the most commonly or frequently occurring values in a series. The mode in adistribution is that item around which there is maximum concentration. Mode is a positional averageand is not affected by the values of extreme items. Mode is particular useful in the study of popularsizes.For example, a manufacturer of shoes is usually interested in finding out the size most indemand. So that he may manufacture a large quantity of that size.2 Some data sets do not have a mode because his happens when the data set has two or morevalues of equal frequency which is greater than that each value occurs only once. On the other hand, somedata sets can have more than one mode. Mode is rarely used as a summary statistic except to describe abimodal distribution. In a bimodal distribution, the taller peak is called the major mode and the shorterone is the minor mode.ADVANTAGES 1. used for data measured in a nominal scale. 2. It can be calculated easily.Disadvantages 1. It is not used in statistical analysis as it is not algebraically defined and the fluctuation in the frequency of observation is more when the sample size is small. 3 Literally, the mode is strictly a measure of the most popular (frequent) value in a dataset and is often not a of 10 senior house officers (SHOs) asked which form of continual professional development (CPD) activity they preferred in preparation for a forthcoming examination, the following responses were obtained: viva practice 5, tutorial 3, in-theatre teaching 2, lecture 0. The mode of this dataset is viva practice as it is the largest (most popular) category. We might say that a ‘typical’ SHO prefers viva practice and plan the CPD time accordingly. 4 MODE=l +{f1 –f0} xh {2f1-f0 –f2} l = Lower limit of modal class f0=frequency of class preding the modal classF1=frequency of class predicting modal class f2=frequency succeeding modal class of class
