Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0this is just a guess, but I think IQR is the best measurement for both. Not 100% sure.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1i always thought that standard deviation is better measure for spread than IQR in any type of data.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I just read that when data has outliers, it is best to use the IQR. And both movies and games has outliers.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1i have a hunch that IQR is better for movies and std. deviation is better for basketball (as the spread for basketball is not max in the middle and std. deviation considers all points from the set unlike IQR )

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you could be right...because the games have outliers but they are not that far spaced
