A group is studying age distribution of people living in town. The mean age is 45, the modal age is 59, the median age is 56, the range is 96, and the standard deviation is 20.5. Is the data positively or negatively skewed

The mean is most influenced by deviant scores. Since mean is lower than the other other measures of central tendency, this means that the lower scores are the deviant ones. What does that tell you?
