This edition: Describing Distributions
Statisticians show us how the proper descriptions of our data can help us understand its meaning and predict what the best actions will be in the future. In this lesson, we will learn how statisticians calculate with numbers. Many of these calculations we already know and are familiar with, such as the average. But there are many more we are unfamiliar with that are critical to understanding the language of statistics. Learning these exact measures and their meaning can help a physician diagnose a patient, or a business stay competitive and prosper.
