Chapter 3: Categorical data Chapters 4 & 5: Quantitative data Recall that: Statistics is the science of collecting, organizing, analyzing, and interpreting data. Once some data has been collected, tables are commonly used for organizing the given data. Graphs (along with numerical analysis) are useful for analyzing the distribution of data.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
