What are open-ended frequency distributions? and Why are they necessary?
Open-ended frequency distributions are those that collect data by removing classes. For instance, have you ever filled out a survey or a form that asks just the following?
what is your household income
Of course this would not include the forms you fill out for credit or loans, etc.
This data collection can be evenly distributed to collect large amounts of data quickly. It gives a more general results, but there is less chance of misrepresentation in many situations for data collection work.
