Topic: Statistical analysis

  Inferring From Data
Statistical analysis has also come to be seen in many scientific disciplines as indispensable for drawing reliable conclusions from empirical results.This new field of mathematics found so extensive a domain of applications.
Statistical inference is refer to extending your knowledge obtain from a random sample from a population to the whole population.
In a statistical hypothesis test, the P value is the probability of observing a test statistic at least as extreme as the value actually observed, assuming that the null hypothesis is true.

 Statistics - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
For example, the statistical significance of a trend in the data — which measures the extent to which the trend could be caused by random variation in the sample — may not agree with one's intuitive sense of its significance.
A common goal for a statistical research project is to investigate causality, and in particular to draw a conclusion on the effect of changes in the values of predictors or independent variables on a response or dependent variable.
Early statistical models were almost always from the class of linear models, but powerful computers, coupled with suitable numerical algorithms, caused a resurgence of interest in nonlinear models (especially neural networks and decision trees) and the creation of new types, such as generalised linear models and multilevel models.

Statistics is a science which involves collecting, organizing, summarizing, analyzing, and interpreting data in order to facilitate the decision-making process.
Inferential or inductive statistics are methods of using a sample data taken from a statistical population to make actual decisions, predictions, and generalizations related to a problem of interest.
Statistical sampling is particularly useful in the analysis of a large bill of materials.

 Statistical Analysis   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-02)
A statistic is a number that is derived from your data, for example a mean (average) or a standard deviation.
The statistics for each factor level or column are contained in a single row, and each type of statistic is contained in a single column.
A very large number of statistical techniques have been developed to handle many different types of data and relationships between them, and it can be difficult and confusing to choose the correct techniques for a given set of data and the requirements of your investigation.

 Statistical Data Analysis   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-02)
What distinguishes data mining from conventional statistical data analysis is that data mining is usually done for the purpose of "secondary analysis" aimed at finding unsuspected relationships unrelated to the purposes for which the data were originally collected.
The decision-oriented methods treat statistics as a matter of action, rather than inference, and attempt to take utilities as well as probabilities into account in selecting actions; the inference-oriented methods treat inference as a goal apart from any action to be taken.
Survival analysis is suited to the examination of data where the outcome of interest is 'time until a specific event occurs', and where not all individuals have been followed up until the event occurs.

 Using Excel for Data Analysis
A statistical package lets you choose as many variables as you wish for descriptive statistics, whether or not they are contiguous.
A statistical package would do this task without any need to sort the data or copy it to another column, and the output would always be properly labeled to the extent that you provide labels for your variables and treatment groups.
Using a statistical program, the data would normally be arranged with the rows representing the subjects, and the columns representing variables (as they are in our sample data).
