Applying quantitative methods

Descriptive statistics is the discipline of quantitatively describing the main features of a collection of data. They provide simple summaries about the sample and the measures. The measures used to describe the data set are measures of central tendency and measures of variability or dispersion. Measures of central tendency include the mean, median and mode, while measures of variability include the standard deviation (or variance), the minimum and maximum variables, kurtosis and skewness.

After using Descriptive statistic we got following results:

Mean| 149.540,92|
Standard Error| 3.984,07|
Median| 144.270,00|
Mode| #N/A|
Standard Deviation|...
