Subject Code & Title : ST104a Statistics
In this exercise you will practice aspects of data visualisation and descriptive statistics. In statistical analysis, there are usually simply too many numbers to make sense of just by staring at them. Data visualisation and descriptive statistics attempt to summarise key features of the data to make them understandable and easy to communicate. The main function of diagrams is to bring out interesting features of a data set visually by displaying its distribution, i.e. summarising the whole sample distribution of a variable. Descriptive statistics allow us to summarise one feature of the sample distribution in a single number. Here you will work with measures of central tendency, measures of dispersion and skewness.
