Encyclopedia > Weighted geometric mean

In statistics, given a set of data, Statistics is a type of data analysis which practice includes the planning, summarizing, and interpreting of observations of a system possibly followed by predicting or forecasting of future events based on a mathematical model of the system being observed. ...

X = { x1, x2, ..., xn}

and corresponding weights, A weight function is a mathematical device used when performing a sum, integral, or average in order to give some elements more of a weight than others. ...

W = { w1, w2, ..., wn}

the weighted geometric mean is calculated as

Note that if all the weights are equal, the weighted geometric mean is the same as the geometric mean. The geometric mean of a set of positive data is defined as the product of all the members of the set, raised to a power equal to the reciprocal of the number of members. ...

Weighted versions of other means can also be calculated. Probably the best known weighted mean is the weighted arithmetic mean, usually simply called the weighted mean. Another example of a weighted mean is the weighted harmonic mean. In statistics, given a set of data, X = { x1, x2, ..., xn} and corresponding weights, W = { w1, w2, ..., wn} the weighted mean is calculated as Note that if all the weights are equal, the weighted mean is the same as the arithmetic mean. ...

 mean: Definition, Synonyms and Much More from Answers.com (3277 words) The mean is frequently confused with the median or mode. The arithmetic mean of a group of numbers is found by dividing their sum by the number of members in the group; e.g., the sum of the seven numbers 4, 5, 6, 9, 13, 14, and 19 is 70 so their mean is 70 divided by 7, or 10. The mean is the arithmetic average of a set of values, or distribution; however, for skewed distributions, the mean is not necessarily the same as the middle value (median), or most likely (mode).
