###
Plural

Statistics are numbers

###
Singular

Statistics is the study of data

###
Exploratory Statistics

The procedures used to organize and summarize numerical data

###
Inferential Statistics

The methods used to find out something about a population, based on a sample, generally we prefer to use a random sample for making inferences

###
Population

The set representing all measurements of interest to the researcher

###
Sample

Is a subset of measurements selected from the population of interest

###
Parameter

Refers to a quantity that characterizes a population.

###
Estimators

Refers to a quantity characterizes a sample.

###
X with a line on top

Sample Mean symbol

###
s

Population Standard Deviation

###
Census

A sample consisting of the entire population

###
Constants

When observations on the same phenomenon do not change in successive trials, the phenomenon is called?

###
Variables

When observations on the same phenomenon vary from trial to trial, the phenomenon is called a?

###
Qualitative Variable

A variable whose observations vary in kind but not in degree

###
Quantitative Variable

A variable whose observations vary in magnitude from trial to trial

###
Nominal Level

A measurement that is used to refer to data that can only be classified into categories.

###
Ordinal Level

Observations are ordered or ranked

###
Interval Level

Observations ordered in such a way that distances between them are meaningful

###
Ration Level

Observations ordered in such a way that not only distances between them are meaningful but also ratios can be formed with levels of the scale

###
Statistics

A Collection of procedures and Principles for gaining and processing information in order to make decisions when faced with uncerntainty.

###
Bias

Does not represent the entire population fairly

###
Ratio

Result of one number or quantity divided by another

###
Proportion

a special type of ratio in which the denominator includes the numerator.

###
Percentage

The amount, number or rate of something, regarded as part of a total of 100

###
Rate

The occurrence of a particular outcome is found by dividing the actual number of occurrences by the number of possible outcomes.

###
Population Mean

Average of all individuals in the population

###
Sample mean

Average of all individuals in the sample

###
Pth Percentile

The distribution is the value such that p percent of observations fall at or below it

###
Outliers

Individual observations that fall well outside the overall pattern of data

###
Population Geometric Mean

a type of mean or average, which indicates the central tendency or typical value of a set of numbers.

###
Random

Any value which we cannot predict exactly

###
Random Process

Any experiment or process which produces some unpredictable or random values

###
Deterministic Process

Any experiment or process which produces values which can all be predicted exactly

###
Inference

Induction using data from a random process or experiment

###
Outcome

Each of the distinct results of an experiment

###
Sample Space

Set of all possible outcomes of an experiment

###
Event

A collection of outcome or subset of the sample space.

###
Mutually Exclusive

The occurrence of any one event means that none of the others can occur at the same time

###
n and

Must be shaded Twice

###
Additional Law

if two events A and B are not mutually exclusive

###
Law of multiplication

two events A, and B are independent if the occurrence of one event has no effect on the chance of occurrence of the other event.

###
Mutually Exclusive

_____ events cannot occur simultaneously

###
A or B

Venn- A, middle, B are shaded.

###
A and B

Venn- middle only shaded

###
A and not B

Venn- only A is shaded without middle.

###
Not A and B

Venn- only B is shaded and not middle

###
not A

Venn- Everything but A and middle is shaded

###
Not B

Venn- Everything but B and middle is shaded

###
Not A and Not B

###
Not A or Not B

Venn- Everything but middle is shaded

###
Not A or B

Venn- Only outside is shaded this is a (or)

###
Not A and B

Venn- everthing but middle this is a (and)
