Marginal Relative Frequency

Concept

Marginal Relative Frequency

A marginal relative frequency in a two-way frequency table is the ratio of a marginal frequency and the total number of values or observations. As an example, the following data will be used.

Hat preference
Top hat Beret Total
Gender Male
Female
Total

Dividing the frequencies by will give the joint and marginal relative frequencies.

Hat preference
Top hat Beret Total
Gender Male
Female
Total

The blue entries in the table are the marginal relative frequencies. They show, for instance, that about of all participants of the survey are female. Notice that, ignoring the error margin introduced by rounding, a marginal relative frequency can be found by adding a row or column of joint marginal frequencies.
