Descriptive Statistics

It is conventional to divide statistical methodology into two areas: descriptive statistics and inferential statistics.

Descriptive statistics are used when one wants to describe what their data looks like, or what their most common and important features might be. It is used to summarize data and present it in such a manner that allows others to derive meanings and understandings from the data. Examples of descriptive statistics data includes the mean, medium, mode, among several others.

When presented with significantly large amounts of quantitative data, descriptive statistics aims to replace that data with a smaller summary of measures.
