The correct graph of these hoursperweek data is a bar graph. However, my bar graph definition says that a bar graph is for frequency data. The text's definition of a bar graph is too narrow.

The median height of Women is 65 inches (not 64.6 inches) and the median height of Men is 70 inches (not 69.8 inches). Because of this error, the boxplots in Table 4.3 are not quite right and the explanation that follows the boxplots should be revised as shown below.
Kathy Dillon  Western New England College
The mean height of women is 64.6 inches; the median is 65 inches. The mean height of men is 69.8 inches; the median is 70 inches. The two genders differ by about 5 inches. Although the two distributions overlap, the middle 50 percent of the men are all taller than the middle 50 percent of the women. This difference in the two distribuitons is reflected by an effect size index of 1.86, a value that is very large. (A value of 0.80 is traditionally considered large.) The heights for both women and men are distributed symmetrically.
