Central tendency and variation work.

Suppose you were to ask a large number of U.S. citizens what sort of economic system they believe to be the best: capitalism, communism, or socialism.

What would be the modal response, or the economic system preferred by most people? Capitalism.

Would there be a great deal of dispersion, with large numbers of people choosing the alternatives, communism or socialism?
