In round one the respondent’s median number of agreements was 5.5 from a total of 133 responses, while in the second round the mean was 3 from a total of 57 responses. These showed that half the questions had more than 5.5 agreements each, and similarly in the second round Delphi there were 3 agreements each. However, considering the difference in the number of respondents i.e.14 in round one and 6 in round two, the number of respondents who agreed with questions asked, increased to a fourth quartile range of 13 and inter-quartile range of 9.5. Overall there was a higher rate of agreement in the first round Delphi, than the second round Delphi. Although, the number of respondents dropped to 6 in the second round, the fourth quartile range was 4, with an inter-quartile range of 2.25 agreements. In addition, assessing the homogeneity of respondents followed an identification of differences in the responses of the first four respondents and the last four respondents in round one, produced a p-value of 1.0 (two-tailed Fischer’s exact test). Likewise, the p-value for round two was 1.0 for the first and last two respondents. Moreover, these proved that the association between respondents, and their outcomes (responses) was not statistically…
In saying this, there is a lot of overlap - the female median (4.1) is the same as the upper quartile of the males agreeableness (so also 4.1). The middle 50% of female agreeableness is slightly higher when compared to the male middle 50%, as the middle 50% for females is between 3.6 and 4.5 (IQR = 0.9) whereas the middle 50% of male agreeableness lies between 3.2 and 4.1 (IQR = 0.9). The lower quartile for females (3.6) is just below the median of males (3.7), thus indicating the strong overlap…

possibility of predicting TWS before the season was checked and seasonal TWS prediction model for each selected regions was developed using SST indices as predictors and seasonal TWS as predictand.

In this case, extreme outliers are defined as values that are greater than the upper quartile plus 3 times the inter…
