Project description

Outlier Removal Using InterQuartile Range

Project 2 : UCS633

Submitted By: Lokesh Arora 101703311


InterQuartile Range (IQR) Description

Any set of data can be described by its five-number summary. These five numbers, which give you the information you need to find patterns and outliers, consist of:

The minimum or lowest value of the dataset.
The first quartile Q1, which represents a quarter of the way through the list of all data.
The median of the data set, which represents the midpoint of the whole list of data.
The third quartile Q3, which represents three-quarters of the way through the list of all data.
The maximum or highest value of the data set.

These five numbers tell a person more about their data than looking at the numbers all at once could, or at least make this much easier.

Calculation of IQR

IQR = Q3 – Q1
MIN = Q1 - (1.5IQR)
MAX = Q3 + (1.5


Use the package manager pip to install 101703311_OUTLIERS.

pip install 101703311_OUTLIERS

How to use this package:

101703311_OUTLIERS can be run as shown below:

In Command Prompt

Sample dataset

Marks Students
3 Student1
57 Student2
65 Student3
98 Student4
43 Student5
44 Student6
54 Student7
99 Student8
1 Student9

Output Dataset after Removal

Marks Students
57 Student2
65 Student3
98 Student4
43 Student5
44 Student6
54 Student7

It is clearly visible that the rows containing Student1, Student8 and Student9 have been removed due to them being Outliers.
