## Definition:

Measures of variability is the calculation of the amount of dispersion of the scores/values around the mean, median, or mode. Variability can also be mathematically associated with the terms spread, consistency, and scatter.

## Summary:

The commonly used measures of variability are:

• Range (R)
• Interquartile range (IQR)

## Example:

What is the range of this set of data:
10, 12, 8, 9, 20, 16, 18, 21, 25, 30, 8 ?

Identify the highest and lowest value of the distribution.
HV = 25 LV = 8

Get the difference of HV and LV
R = HV – LV = 25 -8
R = 17
The computed range of the distribution is 17.
