For "Example: Dotplots" at 8:51, wouldn't the spread be 1-5 rather than 1-3 because the data ranges from 1 to 5?

For extra example 2 for stemplot, why 0 - 8 isn't a cluster?

For the last example of Stemplot, Shouldn't the cluster be 15-19?
and does 14 consider a gap?

Excellent demonstrations and explanations. For the first time, I understand left and right skewed.

Raw Data, Dotplots, Stemplots

  • Raw data is always not processed.

  • Graphs are used to identify a distribution’s center, spread, clusters of data, gaps in the data, and shape.

  • Order the data before computing a stemplot.

  • For a dotplot, ordering the data is not necessary; however, it may make graphing the data a bit easier.
