Suggested answer to exercise: Evaluation of a nurse-run asthma school, 7

Question 7: In the SIP table, what is the mode for the score in the ambulation dimension?

Suggested answer

The mode = 0. Why is this? The median = 0. This means that at least half the observations are zero or less. Te score is a percentage between 0 and 100, so cannot be less than zero. Zero must be the most frequent observation. The mode, therefore, is equal to zero.
