Using Descriptive Data

Lets talk about how to analyze data. Analyzing data, after all, is just making sense of it, of turning numbers or other observations into information we can use. We do this so that we can draw conclusions about how well our processes and systems perform, which in turn tells us where we may need to make improvements. This module is about summarizing data numerically, a branch of statistics called descriptive statistics.

You will learn:

  • Summarize data using descriptive methods such as mean, median and standard deviation
  • Describe how to calculate mean, median, range, and standard deviation
