Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1"The standard deviation is used in conjunction with the mean to summarise continuous data, not categorical data. In addition, the standard deviation, like the mean, is normally only appropriate when the continuous data is not significantly skewed or has outliers." https://statistics.laerd.com/statisticalguides/measuresofspreadstandarddeviation.php

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1it appears that if the data is pretty consistent (the box plot is symmetric) then the deviation is suitable, otherwise use the IQR. this is just a cursory reading of the information from the google and i claim no expertise in the matter.

amistre64

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yeah, movies seems out of whack, so IQR might be better for it, and games is pretty even thruout so deviation for it. as an educated guess.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1A on question 1 seems fair. and like i said, i dont have the expertise to verify its accuracy tho. just information from the google
