Detect outliers in a series of numbers
Posted on 2011-03-04
Suppose I have a series of numbers like this
So you most are within a certain range, say +/- 1.0, but there a couple numbers way out of this range.
Is there an algorithm to determine which numbers are these outliers?
I was thinking if I could detect these, then I could calculate the mean of the non-outliers and replace the outliers with that.
