Episode Details

Statistical inference is how researchers draw conclusions about populations based on data from samples. The real purpose of analyzing data is to gain some new understanding, direction, or conclusion about the world around us. This lesson reveals the initial steps that statisticians use to infer meaning from the data they collect. In this lesson, you will learn the basics of how inference leads to conclusions; a process that, at times, is more art than science.
