Detect outliers in a series of numbers
Posted on 2011-03-04
Suppose I have a series of numbers like this
-0.0289436618082665
-0.0322635297824615
0.0473380547993016
-0.0483053616147235
0.0561386651052217
-0.0546202231192121
3912478746624.73
-0.0570958411471398
-0.0406567550991673
-0.0191101260081410
-0.0178598058749180
5912378756654.12
-0.00649518615382946
-0.0569007033673227
0.00634860933789683
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.
