Q.4. Which of the following statistical techniques is used for establishing the Relationship between two variables

(A) Regression

(B) Standard Deviation

(C) Ogive

(D) Z-Score

Explanation:

Regression:

In statistical modeling, regression analysis is a set of statistical processes for estimating the relationships between a dependent variable and one or more independent variables.

Standard Deviation:

In statistics, the standard deviation is a measure of the amount of variation or dispersion of a set of values. A low standard deviation indicates that the values tend to be close to the mean of the set, while a high standard deviation indicates that the values are spread out over a wider range.

Ogive:

An ogive, sometimes called a cumulative frequency polygon, is a type of frequency polygon that shows cumulative frequencies. In other words, the cumulative percents are added on the graph from left to right.

An ogive graph plots cumulative frequency on the y-axis and class boundaries along the x-axis. It’s very similar to a histogram, only instead of rectangles, an ogive has a single point marking where the top right of the rectangle would be. It is usually easier to create this kind of graph from a frequency table.

Z-Score:

In statistics, the standard score is the number of standard deviations by which the value of a raw score is above or below the mean value of what is being observed or measured. Raw scores above the mean have positive standard scores, while those below the mean have negative standard scores.

Q.5. The cumulative frequency distribution is shown by

(A) Histogram

(B) Mode

(C) Frequency Polygon

(D) Ogive

Explanation:

Ogive:

An ogive, sometimes called a cumulative frequency polygon, is a type of frequency polygon that shows cumulative frequencies. In other words, the cumulative percents are added on the graph from left to right.

An ogive graph plots cumulative frequency on the y-axis and class boundaries along the x-axis.

It is usually easier to create this kind of graph from a frequency table.

Q.6. The statistical technique used to determine the degree of relationship between two variables is called*

(A) Disperson

(B) Index Number

(C) Gini Index

(D) Correlation

Explanation:

Q.7. Which of the following is not a quantitative distribution map

(A) Isopleth Map

(B) Dot Map

(C) Choropleth Map

(D) Choroschematic Map

Explanation:

Qualitative Distribution Map:

Choroschematic Map or Symbol Map,

Chorochromatic or Tind or Colour Map,

Naming Map

Quantitative Distribution Map:

Isopleth Map,

Dot Map,

Q.8. Occupational Structure of population in India at state level is best represented by

(A) Pie Diagram

(B) Dot Method

(C) Choropleth Map

(D) Isopleth

Explanation:

A Pie Chart is a type of graph that displays data in a circular graph. The pieces of the graph are proportional to the fraction of the whole in each category. In other words, each slice of the pie is relative to the size of that category in the group as a whole. The entire “pie” represents 100 percent of a whole, while the pie “slices” represent portions of the whole.

Q.9. Which one of the following central tendencies is the appropriate method for the study of disperson?*

(A) Arithmetic Mean

(B) Median

(C) Mode

(D) Geometric Mean

Explanation:

Q.10. Which one of the following cartographic techniques is suitable for measuring spatial association among different attributes of the regional economy?

(A) Bar Diagram

(B) Pie Diagram

(C) Choropleth Map

(D) Isopleth Map

Explanation:

Q.11. Which one of the following statistical techniques involves a large number of variables to be summarized into smaller dimension?

(A) Chi-Square

(B) Correlation Analysis

(C) Regression

(D) Factor Analysis

Explanation:

Factor analysis is a technique that is used to reduce a large number of variables into fewer numbers of factors.  This technique extracts maximum common variance from all variables and puts them into a common score.

Q.12. Which one of the following averages is not a measure of central tendency?

(A) Harmonic Mean

(B) Geographic Mean Centre

(C) Geometric Mean

(D) Arithmetic Mean

Explanation:
