Defining Statistical Data People rarely ever realize it; however, everyone has made some form of statistical statement or thought within their everyday life; from conversations to thinking about something. Take a puppy for example. For every month in age a puppy is equates to one hour of being able to hold their bladders (Humane Society, 2009). Other examples would be Survey Data’s that are fundamentally amalgamated into scopes of miscalculations, randomized sampling as well as certainty periods. Such thoughts like these are statistical by nature without us even realizing it. To further explain statistics, it is a discipline that is made up regarding certain factors that involve things like deductive reasoning; granted, Science is practically statistics in and of itself through fabricating experimentations that require data collectivity, recapitulating information for the purpose of understanding something and pulling deductions through the use of the Scientific Method (i.e. formulating theories) through data collection. Sample Data Sample data basically is a subclass of populations such as humans, animals and even objects; it often goes as far as Physical Science and the Scientific Method. Within statistics, known as survey methodology, Sample Data concerns itself in the selective method regarding the subset of inhabitants or humans from within any particular population. This is done in order to approximate the uniqueness of an entire populace like weight, gender, color, religion, job types, etc. Sample Data surveying is also extremely cost effective opposed to surveying an entire

population. In short, this form of Sample Data is, from my own opinion, nothing more than probability theories. Population Data On the other hand, Population Data is just that; a means or census aimed at providing Data specifically based on the demographics, collective distinctiveness of a populace, individualism, and the primary starting point...

...lower average of beds? This specific study was conducted using a hypothesis testing of two samples that had two means. The reason why the choice of testing of two samples means were because it compared the two sets of data that are directly related to each other. The reason why I believed that rural homes have a lower average of beds due to the fact that rural areas are the countryside rather than the big known towns or towns of the state.
The population that my data set represents was the number of beds that the in-patients had in each of the homes between non-rural home and rural home facilities. The reason why the data was collected was because the Department of Health and Social Services of the State of New Mexico and cover 60 licensed nursing facilities in New Mexico in 1988. The methods that were used to collect the data was by the number of beds that were used in the home, annual medical in patient days (hundreds), annual total patient days (hundreds), annual total patient care revenue ($hundreds), annual nursing salaries ($hundreds), annual facilities expenditures ($hundred), and where the home was located between non-rural and rural areas. The source of the data set of the nursing home information toward New Mexico in 1988 was part of the data analyzed by Howard L. Smith, Niell F. Piland, and Nancy Fisher. This was published in the Journal of Rural...

...Definition:
Statistics is the study of the collection, organization, analysis, interpretation and presentation of data. It deals with all aspects of this, including the planning of data collection in terms of the design of surveys and experiments.
A statistician is someone who is particularly well-versed in the ways of thinking necessary for the successful application of statistical analysis. Such people have often gained experience through working in any of a wide number of fields.
Some consider statistics to be a mathematical body of science pertaining to the collection, analysis, interpretation or explanation, and presentation of data, while others consider it a branch of mathematics concerned with collecting and interpreting data. Because of its empirical roots and its focus on applications, statistics is usually considered to be a distinct mathematical science rather than a branch of mathematics. Much of statistics is non-mathematical: ensuring that data collection is undertaken in a way that allows valid conclusions to be drawn; coding and archiving of data so that information is retained
Statisticians improve the quality of data by coming up with a specific design of experiments and survey sampling. Statistics itself also provides tools for prediction and forecasting the use of...

...1 Nature of Probability and Statistics
OBJECTIVES
Demonstrate knowledge of statistical terms. Differentiate between the two branches of statistics. Identify types of data. Identify the measurement level for each variable. Identify the four basic sampling techniques. Explain the difference between an observational and an experimental study. Explain how statistics can be used and misused. Explain the importance of computers and calculators in statistics.
Statistics is the science of conducting studies to collect, organize, summarize, analyze, and draw conclusions from data. Descriptive statistics consists of the collection, organization, summarization, and presentation of data. Inferential statistics consists of generalizing from samples to populations, performing estimations hypothesis testing, determining relationships among variables, and making predictions. (Probability, Hypothesis testing, relationships between variables, predictions) Probability is the chance of an event occurring. A population consists of all subjects that are being studied. A sample is a group of subjects selected from a population.
Variables and Types of Data
In order to gain knowledge about seemingly haphazard events, statisticians collect information for variables...

...children. He also added that if there are numerous suspensions of classes because of the destructive weather, the number of lessons that the students should take up will be affected.
According to the survey conducted by DepEd last August to September 2009, only three regions were in favor of moving the school opening to September, including Region III (Central Luzon) with 54 percent, Region VI (Western Visayas) with 68 percent, and Region IX (Western Mindanao) with 51 percent.[19] A survey that is conducted by DepEd three years ago, it shows that only three regions here in the Philippines was in favor of moving the school opening to September because there are the regions that is most affected by heavy rains during the month of June.
Citing data from the Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA), Cavite Representative Lani Mercado-Revilla said about 19 to 20 typhoons visit the country every year beginning June up to September. Torrential rains and heavy floods disrupt classes in all levels resulting in the suspension and irregularity of school days in past years.
Rep. Lani Mercado-Revilla cites the study conducted by PAGASA that there is a need to move the opening of classes from June to September because strong typhoons visit our country every year beginning June up to September. Also heavy rains disrupt classes resulting in numerous suspension and irregularity in the school calendar.

Simply use statistics as a tool. You will be given a data. (Next year you will not be given data, you will gather data yoruself).
1. Data: one of the variables is dependent and other dependent. Can be multiple. Then do regression analysis. ANOVA for overall significance and Regression equation. And write based on ANOVA there is a significance or not.
2. Some comments on correlation: volume vs. horse power etc.
3. Hypothesis test of one population. I assume that the mean is etc etc. Small paragraph analysis below the results of the test. ANOVA for small, large and medium size businesses for example.

...themes run through the study guide: data analysis and
decision making techniques.
Firstly we look at data analysis. This approach starts with data that are manipulated or processed
into information that is valuable to decision making. The processing and manipulation of raw
data into meaningful information are the heart of data analysis. Data analysis includes data
description,data inference, the search for relationships in data and dealing with uncertainty
which in turn includes measuring uncertainty and modelling uncertainty explicitly.
In addition to data analysis, other decision making techniques are discussed. These techniques
include decision analysis, project scheduling and network models.
Chapter 1 illustrates a number of ways to summarise the information in data sets, also known as
descriptive statistics. It includes graphical and tabular summaries, as well as summary measures
such as means, medians and standard deviations.
Uncertainty is a key aspect of most business problems. To deal with uncertainty, we need a basic
understanding of probability. Chapter 2 covers basic rules of probability and in Chapter 3 we
discuss the important concept of probability distributions in some generality.
In Chapter 4 we discuss statistical inference...
