Analysis of the Average Marriage Age for Men and Women from 1890 to 2003
Mail   Print   Twitter   Facebook

From the graphical summaries, females tend to get married at an earlier age than males. Although both histograms are skewed right, the females' histogram clearly illustrates a skewed right shape. The stem and leaf further supports the early marriage age for females but illustrates a greater age range as well.

Based on the column statistics, the mean age of marriage for males is 24.42, a median of 24.1, standard deviation of 1.58, and an interquartile range of 2.9. The mean marriage age for females is 21.97, a median of 21.3, standard deviation of 1.73, and an interquartile range of 3.1.  Even though the mean and median are fairly close, one cannot use the Empirical Rule since the histograms do not follow a bell-shape.

Finally, the boxplot provides a visual representation of the min, max, quartiles, and median. It also further illustrates the skewed right shape for males and females based on the length of the whiskers and relationship of the median.
