A Primer Demonstration of Some Modern Statistics.
VandenBosch, Dawn
"Modern" statistics may generate more replicable characterizations of data because, at least in some respects the influence of more extreme and less representative scores are minimized. Explaining both trimmed and Winsorized (C. Winsor) statistics, this paper uses examples to show the effects concretely. Although the paper focuses on illustrations involving Winsorized or trimmed means, these "modern" procedures can also be used to yield improved estimates of other statistics, such as standard deviations or correlations. (Contains 1 table and 11 references.) (Author/SLD)
