## Mode

The mode is the most frequent score in our data set. Let’s
say our data-set has following data-points.

·
1,2,3,3,3,4,4,5,3,7,3

In this case 3 occurs the most number of times and hence 3
is the mode of our data-set. Mode is used when we want to know the most likely
outcome in our data-set. Let’s say we are dealing with categorical data. For e.g.
religion of people in India and we know that 80% people living in India are
Hindus. Hence Hindu become the mode of our data.

The following video deals with measures of central tendency
