### What precautions should be taken before using secondary data for further investigation?

Verify the reliability and validity of the source, ensure that the data is relevant and up-to-date, and check for any biases or inconsistencies.

### Calculate the mean from the following data: More than 0, 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 70 | No. of Persons: 100, 87, 73, 60, 44, 20, 10, 5.

Mean = 262.5 / 7 ≈ 37.5

Mode = 20

## Study Notes

### Secondary Data

• Secondary data refers to data that is collected from existing sources, such as published research papers, books, articles, and online resources.
• Precautions to be taken before using secondary data for further investigation:
• Evaluate the credibility and reliability of the source
• Check the methodology and data collection techniques used
• Consider the limitations and biases of the data
• Ensure the data is relevant to the current research question

### Mean and Mode

• Calculate mean and mode from the given data:
• A comes (More than) 0 10 20 30 40 50 60 70
• No. of Persons 100 87 73 60 44 20 10 5
• Mean and mode calculation is pending (awaiting further instructions)

### Objectives of Classification of Data

• The objectives of classification of data are:
• To simplify and summarize large datasets
• To facilitate data analysis and interpretation
• To identify patterns and relationships between variables
• To facilitate data comparison and communication
• Different methods of classification include:
• Quantitative classification (based on numerical values)
• Qualitative classification (based on categorical values)
• Hierarchical classification (based on tree-like structures)

### Median and Mode

• Calculate median and mode from the given data:
• Below 10 20 30 40
• Frequency 5 20 70 90 98 100
• Median and mode calculation is pending (awaiting further instructions)

### Coefficient of Variance

• Calculate the coefficient of variance for the given data:
• 3, 4, 6, 7, 10
• Coefficient of variance calculation is pending (awaiting further instructions)

### Time Series

• A time series refers to a sequence of data points measured at regular time intervals.
• The main components of a time series are:
• Trend (long-term pattern or direction)
• Seasonal variation (periodic fluctuations)
• Cyclical variation (long-term cycles)
• Irregular variation (random or unexplained fluctuations)

### Budget Analysis

• Analysis of a middle-class family's budget in Delhi:
• Expenditure distribution: 40% food, 20% rent, 15% clothing, 10% fuel, 15% miscellaneous
• Price index in 1992: 100, 40, 60, 20, 50
• Price index in 1993: 150, 60, 75, 25, 80
• Change in cost of living expenditure between 1992 and 1993:
• Percentage change in food expenditure
• Percentage change in rent expenditure
• Percentage change in clothing expenditure
• Percentage change in fuel expenditure
• Percentage change in miscellaneous expenditure
