Median, mode, quartiles, quintiles and so on, except when you get to very large number of percentiles.

What is affected by extreme outliers?

Extreme outliers can greatly distort statistical measures such as the mean and standard deviation, making them less representative of the data. They can also impact the accuracy of predictive models by leading to overfitting. In some cases, outliers may signal data quality issues or the presence of unexpected patterns in the data that warrant further investigation.

What do box and whisker plots tell you about data that measures of central tenancy do not?

The box and whisker plot informs you of the 5 number summary, which comprises of the minimum and maximum, the median, and the first and third quartiles. The minumum and maximum give you the range, which is not given by measures of central tendancy. also, if it a modified box and whisker plot, outliers will be marked separatley from the rest of the plot, outliers are also not included in the measures of center.

What are outliers and how do they affect data?

Outliers are observations that are unusually large or unusually small. There is no universally agreed definition but values smaller than Q1 - 1.5*IQR or larger than Q3 + 1.5IQR are normally considered outliers. Q1 and Q3 are the lower and upper quartiles and Q3-Q1 is the inter quartile range, IQR. Outliers distort the mean but cannot affect the median. If it distorts the median, then most of the data are rubbish and the data set should be examined thoroughly. Outliers will distort measures of dispersion, and higher moments, such as the variance, standard deviation, skewness, kurtosis etc but again, will not affect the IQR except in very extreme conditions.
