Mode—:“The value occuring most frequently in series (or group) of items and around which the other items are distributed most densely”.
Demerits of the Mode
- Incapable of Algebraic treatment—Unlike mean, mode is not capable of further algebraic treatment.
- Uncertain and vague—Mode is an uncertain and vague measure of central tendency.
- Restricted use—If the frequency of each item of the series is same than mode cannot be calculated. In this way, the use of mode, is restricted.
