Statistics 110 Introduction to Statistical Reasoning Chapter 1  Introduction Statistics- is the science of data; how to interpret data, analyze data, and design studies to collect data -Individuals- the objects observed in a study. Individuals are often people, but they don’t have to be. -Variables- is a characteristic that we measure on each individual. -These measurements are called Data A Categorical variable- places individuals into one of several groups or categories. A Quantative variable- assumes numerical values. Example: weight, age, etc. A variable will usually take on different values for different individuals, this is called Variation. Graphs can be used to display the variation observed in ne or more variables.  Populations and Samples: -Population- The entire group of Individuals about which we want information. -A Sample- is the part of the population we actually observe. -In most situations, the population is too large to observe. This is why we use samples. -Survey- studies used to provoke (a response, answer, or fact), information about population of interest. -Statistical Inference: What do the results from the sample suggest about the population of individuals? -Census- a special type of survey where the goal is to observe every individual in the population.  Observational Studies and Experiments:  Observational study- observes individuals and measures variables of interest. There is no attempt to intervene in order to influence the responses. -In observational studies, we observe the results -The problem with observational studies is that their “findings” are often not repeatable.  Experiment- is a study where the investigators deliberately impose some type of treatment or intervention on the individuals. This is done to see how individuals’ responses are influences by the treatment or intervention. -In Experiments, we act and the observe the effect of doing so. Experiments give better information about Cause and Effect. Observational studies generally give no information about this.
