## Identifying outliers with the 1.5xIQR rule (article)

## Identifying outliers with the 1.5xIQR rule

Google ClassroomFacebookTwitter

An outlier is a data point that lies outside the overall pattern in a distribution.

The distribution below shows the scores on a driver's test for

19 19 19

applicants. How many outliers do you see?

0 0 5 5 10 10 15 15 20 20 25 25 Scores

Some people may say there are

5 5 5

outliers, but someone else might disagree and say there are

3 3 3 or 4 4 4

outliers. Statisticians have developed many ways to identify what should and shouldn't be called an outlier.

A commonly used rule says that a data point is an outlier if it is more than

1.5\cdot \text{IQR} 1.5⋅IQR

1, point, 5, dot, start text, I, Q, R, end text

above the third quartile or below the first quartile. Said differently, low outliers are below

\text{Q}_1-1.5\cdot\text{IQR}

Q 1 −1.5⋅IQR

start text, Q, end text, start subscript, 1, end subscript, minus, 1, point, 5, dot, start text, I, Q, R, end text

and high outliers are above

\text{Q}_3+1.5\cdot\text{IQR}

Q 3 +1.5⋅IQR

start text, Q, end text, start subscript, 3, end subscript, plus, 1, point, 5, dot, start text, I, Q, R, end text

.

Let's try it out on the distribution from above.

## Bonus learning: Showing outliers in box and whisker plots

Box and whisker plots will often show outliers as dots that are separate from the rest of the plot.

Here's a box and whisker plot of the distribution from above that does not show outliers.

Here's a box and whisker plot of the same distribution that does show outliers.

Notice how the outliers are shown as dots, and the whisker had to change. The whisker extends to the farthest point in the data set that wasn't an outlier, which was

## What Is Outlier Formula? Examples

The extreme values in the data are called outliers. Understand the outlier formula with examples and FAQs.

## Outlier Formula

The extreme values in the data are called outliers. The outlier formula helps us to find outliers in a data set. The outlier in the literary world refers to the best and the brightest people. There is a non-fiction book 'Outliers' written by Malcolm Gladwell that debuted as the number one on the best seller books of the New York Times. Here, Malcolm describes outliers as people with exceptional intelligence, large fortunes, and who are different from the usual set of people. In this lesson, we shall explore the outlier formula,by finding answers to questions like what is an outlier, how to find outliers using the turkey method, and solving examples at the end.

## What Is Outlier Formula?

The extreme values in the data are called outliers.

Example: For a data set containing 2, 19, 25, 32, 36, 38, 31, 42, 57, 45, and 84

In the above number line, we can observe the numbers 2 and 84 are at the extremes and are thus the outliers. The outliers are a part of the group but are far away from the other members of the group. The problem with outliers: Outliers create an imbalance in the data-set and hence are generally removed from the data. Also, sometimes the outlier occurs in the data-set, due to an error.

Consider the data: 70, 73, 77, 71, 7, 73, 72, and 78

Let's calculate the mean to understand how the outlier affects the results.

Here, the datapoint 7, is an outlier.

Mean (with outlier) = (70 + 73 + 77 + 71 + 7 + 73 + 72 + 78)/8 = 521/8 = 65.1

Mean (without an outlier) = (70 + 73 + 77 + 71 + 73 + 72 + 78)/7 = 514/7 = 73.4

We can now observe how the outlier creates a variation in the mean value of the data.

Before we learn about finding the outlier, let's know about the quartiles and interquartile range.

First Quartile Q1: The mid-value of the first half of the data represents the first quartile.

Second Quartile Q2: The mid-value or the median of the data represents the second quartile

Third Quartile Q3: The mid-value of the second half of the data represents the third quartile

## Outlier Formula (Turkey Method)

Turkey's method is a mathematical method to find outliers. As per the Turkey method, the outliers are the points lying beyond the upper boundary of Q3 +1.5 IQR and the lower boundary of Q1 - 1.5 IQR. These boundaries are referred to as outlier fences.

**Upper~Fence = Q3 +1.5 IQR**

**Lower~Fence = Q1 - 1.5 IQR**

The data points beyond the upper and the lower fence in this box plot are referred to as outliers.

The data points beyond the upper and the lower fence in this box plot are referred to as outliers.

## How Does Removing the Outlier Affect the Mean?

Removing an outlier changes the value of the mean. Let us understand this with sample data of 10, 11, 14, 15, and 55

Mean = (10 + 11 + 14 + 15 + 55)/5 = 105/5 = 21

Mean (without the outlier) = (10 + 11 + 14 + 15)/4 = 50/4 = 12.5

Here, on removing the outlier 55 from the sample data the mean changes from 21 to 12.5

## Solved Examples Using Outlier Formula

**Example 1: Sam has got a set of multiples of the numbers 4, 8, 12, 16, 20, 22, 24, 28, 32, 36, 40, 44, 48, and 52. Help Sam to find the first quartile and the third quartile along with the outlier(s) of this data. Solve this by using the outlier formula.**

**Solution:**The given data is 4, 8, 12, 16, 20, 22, 24, 28, 32, 36, 40, 44, 48, and 52

Median = 28

The first half of the data is 4, 8, 12, 16, 20, 22, 24, 28 and its mid-value is 16

Q1 = 16

The second half of the data is 28, 32, 36, 40, 44, 48, 52 and the mid-value is 40

Q3 = 40

Interquartile range IQR = Q3 - Q1 = 40 - 16 = 24

1.5 IQR = 1.5 × 24 = 36

Upper Boundary = Q3 +1.5 IQR = 40 + 36 = 76

Lower Boundary = Q1 - 1.5 IQR = 16 - 36 = -20

The outlier boundaries are -20 and 76, and no number lies beyond the upper and lower boundaries.

**Answer: The first quartile is 16 and the third quartile is 40. There are no outliers.**

**Example 2: John has made a note of the scores of his classmates in a drawing assignment as 12, 19, 36, 33, 27, 19, 9, 66, 55, 44, 42, 71, 37, 39, 28, and 25. Help John find the interquartile range and oulier(s) for this set of marks. Solve this by using the outlier formula.**

**Solution:**

The given data is 12, 19, 36, 33, 27, 19, 9, 66, 55, 44, 42, 71, 37, 39, 28, and 25

Arranging the data in an ascending order, we will have: 9, 12, 19, 19, 25, 27, 28, 33, 36, 37, 39, 42, 44, 55, 66, and 71

Median = 33

The first half of the data is 9, 12, 19, 19, 25, 27, 28, 33

Q1 = (19 + 25)/2 = 44/2 = 22

The second half of the data is 36, 37, 39, 42, 44, 55, 66, 71

Q3 = (42 + 44)/2 = 86/2 = 43

Interquartile Range IQR = Q3 - Q1 = 43 - 22 = 21

Guys, does anyone know the answer?
