By taking their arithmetic mean, might not give sensible results. Are we still allowed to aggregate? Of course we are! We just have to make some wise decisions about how best to transform this data so that the output is useful. In this chapter, we will look at some alternative ways to transform data and then introduce the power means, a general family of means that includes the means we looked at in the previous chapter as special cases. Assumed Background Concepts • Standard deviation What would you expect to be the standard deviation for heights?
1 The female student names here are borrowed respectfully from K¯oshun Takami’s novel Battle Royale (although his novel is not related at all to volleyball). 1 Which is Better: Higher or Lower? One thing that you might notice immediately is that a slower sprinting time contributes to a higher value in the arithmetic mean. Mizuho is a lot slower than Izumi and has similar height, serving score and endurance, however her final rating is better because slower times add more points. Since we are talking about volleyball teams, we probably want to reward quicker sprinting times.
