Example text

Probability plot for the data set shown in Figure 2-9. distribution function ((x − μ)/σ ) with mean μ and standard deviation σ : yi = xi − μ σ only if data is Gaussian Here, yi is the value of the cumulative distribution function corresponding to the data point xi ; in other words, yi is the quantile of the point xi . Now comes the trick. We apply the inverse of the Gaussian distribution function to both sides of the equation: −1 (yi ) = xi − μ σ With a little bit of algebra, this becomes xi = μ + σ −1 (yi ) In other words, if we plot the values in the data set as a function of −1 (yi ), then they should fall onto a straight line with slope σ and zero intercept μ.

So far, I have always assumed that we want to compare an empirical data set against a theoretical distribution. But there may also be situations where we want to compare two empirical data sets against each other—for example, to find out whether they were drawn from the same family of distributions (without having to specify the family explicitly). The process is easiest to understand when both data sets we want to compare contain the same number of points. You sort both sets and then align the points from both data sets that have the same rank (once sorted).

Do many data points lie far away from the central group of points), or are most of the points—with the possible exception of individual outliers—confined to a restricted region? • If there are clusters, how many are there? Is there only one, or are there several? Approximately where are the clusters located, and how large are they—both in terms of spread and in terms of the number of data points belonging to each cluster? • Are the clusters possibly superimposed on some form of unstructured background, or does the entire data set consist only of the clustered data points?
