Descriptive Data Analysis


Bernard S. Gorman
Nassau Community College, Hofstra, and Adelphi Universities


Nearly every data analysis should, at least, start with descriptive, exploratory analyses. Exploratory analysis serves several important functions; especially checking on data quality and helping investigators to choose the best inferential statistical procedures. Rather than simply being the first few segments of a course or a textbook in general statistics, the topics descriptive statistics should be integral parts of each and every phase of statistical investigation.

The workshop will show participants how to gain the most information from both univariate and multivariate data. Emphasis will be placed on the use of modern software for exploring and presenting both numeric and graphic data displays.
