Statistical Analysis with Categorical Data

1. Statistical Analysis with Categorical Data

Learn why percentages are so important when analyzing categorical data in this video lesson. Watch as the data is turned into a data table and a visual bar graph as ways to analyze the data.

Understanding Bar Graphs and Pie Charts

2. Understanding Bar Graphs and Pie Charts

In this lesson, we will examine two of the most widely used types of graphs: bar graphs and pie charts. These two graphs can provide the reader with a comparison of the different data that is displayed.

Summarizing Categorical Data using Tables

3. Summarizing Categorical Data using Tables

Watch this video lesson to find out why data tables are an excellent way to summarize your categorical data. Learn what you need to do to your data before constructing a table and the two ways you can show your data.

How to Calculate Percent Increase with Relative & Cumulative Frequency Tables

4. How to Calculate Percent Increase with Relative & Cumulative Frequency Tables

In statistics, one way to describe and analyze data is by using frequency tables. This lesson will discuss relative and cumulative frequencies and how to calculate percent increase using these two methods.

What is a Two-Way Table?

5. What is a Two-Way Table?

Do you believe in Martians? Do you watch football on television? A Two-Way Table or Contingency Table is a great way to show the results of all kinds of survey questions. In this video we will learn how to read a two-way table.

Make Estimates and Predictions from Categorical Data

6. Make Estimates and Predictions from Categorical Data

Categorical data can be estimated but not predicted. Learn why in this video lesson along with how to read and gather information from a bar graph of categorical data.

What is Quantitative Data? - Definition & Examples

7. What is Quantitative Data? - Definition & Examples

Watch this video lesson to find out the difference between saying you have seven apples and saying that those apples are delicious. You will learn about quantitative data and why it is useful.

What is a Histogram in Math? - Definition & Examples

8. What is a Histogram in Math? - Definition & Examples

Watch this video lesson to see how useful a histogram can be when you need to show a bunch of data in an easy to read format. Also, learn how you can easily gather the information you need from looking at a histogram.

What are Center, Shape, and Spread?

9. What are Center, Shape, and Spread?

Center, shape, and spread are all words that describe what a particular graph looks like. Watch this video lesson to see how you can identify and explain each.

How to Calculate Mean, Median, Mode & Range

10. How to Calculate Mean, Median, Mode & Range

Measures of central tendency can provide valuable information about a set of data. In this lesson, explore how to calculate the mean, median, mode and range of any given data set.

Describing the Relationship between Two Quantitative Variables

11. Describing the Relationship between Two Quantitative Variables

In this video lesson, you will learn about quantitative variables, what they are, and how one variable relates to another. You will learn why this is important and why it can sometimes even save lives.

Calculating the Standard Deviation

12. Calculating the Standard Deviation

In this lesson, we will examine the meaning and process of calculating the standard deviation of a data set. Standard deviation can help to determine if the data set is a normal distribution.

Quartiles & the Interquartile Range: Definition, Formulate & Examples

13. Quartiles & the Interquartile Range: Definition, Formulate & Examples

Quartiles and the interquartile range can be used to group and analyze data sets. In this lesson, learn the definition and steps for finding the quartiles and interquartile range for a given data set.
