###
population of interest

###
sample

a subset of the population, selected for study in some prescribed manner.

###
descriptive statistics

methods for organizing and summarizing data.

###
inferential statsitics

###
univariate data set

a data set consisting of observations on a single attribute.

###
categorical data (qualitative)

###
numerical data (quantitative)

###
bivariate data set

###
multivariate data set

a data set consisting of observations for each of two or more attributes.

###
numerical data: discrete

if the possible values are isolated points on the number line.

###
numerical data: continuous

if the set of possible values forms an entire interval on the number line.

###
frequency distribution for categorical data

a table that displays the possible categories along with the associated frequencies or relative frequencies.

###
frequency

for a particular category, it is the number of times the category appears in the data set.

###
relative freqency

for a particular category, it is the fraction or proportion of the time that the category appears in the data set, it is calculated as: relative frequency = frequency/number of observations in the data set

###
relative frequency distribution

when the table includes relative frequencies.

###
bar chart

a graph of the frequency distribution of categorical data.

###
dotplot

a simple way to display numerical data when the data set is reasonably small.
