DescriptiveStatistics
Descriptive statistics involves organizing, summarizing and
illustrating statistical data. The objective is to show important
characteristics of the data without drawing any conc
Simple Linear Regression
Simple linear regression is used to analyze the nature of the relationship between two variables.
The dependent (response) variable is designated by Y and the independent (exp
Hypothesis Testing: One Population
Hypothesis testing is used to make decisions about a population based on the analysis of sample
statistics. There are always two hypothesis statements which are mutu

Contingency Table Test for Independence:
H0: The two criteria are independent of each other.
H1: The two criteria are not independent of each other.

OverviewofInference
Methods for drawing conclusions about a population
from sample data are called statistical inference.
Methods:
Confidence Intervals - estimating a value of a
population parameter.
SmallSampleSizes
The sample standard deviation s provides an estimate of the
population standard deviation .
When the sample size is large,
it is likely to contain elements
representative of the whole
One-Way Analysis of Variance (ANOVA)
ANOVA tests for the equality of two or more population (treatment) means.
Assumptions:
1.
All populations are normally distributed.
2.
All populations have the sam

A phenomenon is random if individual
outcomes are uncertain, and there is a
distribution of outcomes in a large
number of repetitions.

A random variables numerical value is determined by the outcome of a
random phenomenon.
i.e. A basketball player shoots three times. We can define a random
