Statistics – Grand Mean

When sample sizes are equal, in other words, there could be five
values in each sample, or n values in each sample. The grand mean
is the same as the mean of sample means.

Formula

${X_{GM} = frac{sum x}{N}}$

Where −

  • ${N}$ = Total number of sets.

  • ${sum x}$ = sum of the mean of all sets.

Example

Problem Statement:

Determine the mean of each group or set’s samples. Use the
following data as a sample to determine the mean and grand mean.

Jackson 1 6 7 10 4
Thomas 5 2 8 14 6
Garrard 8 2 9 12 7

Solution:

Step 1: Compute all means

$ {M_1 = frac{1+6+7+10+4}{5} = frac{28}{5} = 5.6 \[7pt] , M_2
= frac{5+2+8+14+6}{5} = frac{35}{5} = 7 \[7pt] , M_3 =
frac{8+2+9+12+7}{5} = frac{38}{5} = 7.6 }$

Step 2: Divide the total by the number of groups to determine the
grand mean. In the sample, there are three groups.

$ {X_{GM} = frac{5.6+7+7.6}{3} = frac{20.2}{3} \[7pt] , =
6.73 }$
