Points to rememeber

* Dispersion is a measure of the variation of the items from central value.

* The measures of dispersion are important to compare uniformity, consistency and reliability amongst variables/ senes

* Absolute measures of dispersion are expressed in terms of original unit of series.

* Relative measures are expressed in ratios or percentage, also known as coefficients of dispersion.


* The Lorenz curve devised by Dr. Max O. Lorenz, is a graphic method of studying dispersion.

* The Lorenz curve always lies- below the line of equal distribution, unless the distribution is uniform.

* The Area between the line of equal distribution and the plotted curve gives the extent of inequality in the items. The larger the area, more is the inequality.
