Descriptive Statistics

Researchers could evaluate numerous behavioral variables like memory, thoughts, anxiety love. Oftentimes, thousands of measuring are worked out and processes were formulated to prepare, summarize, and make sense of these measures. All these processes are mentioned as "Descriptive statistics" and are specifically applied to distinguish or summarize a lot of observations, known as data.

Descriptive Statistics

For instance,  imagine we wish to study anxiety amongst university students. We can describe anxiety and then a state or feel of nervousness and worry. These surely keys out anxiety but not numerically (in a sense that permits us to measure out anxiousness). Rather, we can say that anxiety is the no. of times scholars fidget on a course demonstration. Instantly anxiety can be explained in numbers.

We could notice fifty, hundred, or a thousand scholars give a class demonstration and record the amount of time every Scholar fidgeted. Exhibiting a spreadsheet with the amount for every individual scholar is not really clear and because of this reason most of the researcher actually apply descriptive statistics to summarize set of separate measures so they can be distinctly demonstrated and rendered. The descriptive statistics is the process used for summarizing, organizing, and make sense of a set of observances. Descriptive statistics are generally demonstrated in a graphical form i.e, in tabular form or as summary statistics.

Data & Datum

Data is a plural form and are the observations or quantity which are generally numerical. A datum is singular form and is an individual observation or quantity commonly referred to as a raw score or score. The data are commonly exhibited in summary and generally, this signifies that data are graphically presented in tables or summary.

For instance, the amount every person fidgeted doesn't make meaning, whereas the mean (average), median (middle), or mode (most common) no. of times amongst all individuals is more significant. Graphs and tables assist a similar function to summarize small and large sets of data.
