Objects and Importance of Dispersion

Measures of dispersion are computed to serve the following objectives :

1. To judge the Reliability of the Average :  by measure of dispersion, we can judge the reliability if dispersion in a series is small it means average represents the distribution in a proper way. On the other hand, If dispersion is large, we say that average is not representing the distribution in a proper way.

2. To Know the Range of values: Calculation of dispersion is necessary to know the difference between the highest and the lowest values.
