Sample or population data?
The fundamentals of descriptive statistics

3Understanding the difference between a population and a sample
The first step of every statistical analysis you will perform is to determine whether the data you are dealing with is a population or a sample. Furthermore, we need to know the difference between a random sample and a representative sample.

4Population vs sample

5The various types of data we can work with
Before we can start testing we have to get acquainted with the types of variables, as different types of statistical tests and visualizations, require different types of data.

41The Normal distribution
We introduce the Normal distribution and its great importance to statistics as a field.

42The Normal distribution

66Confidence intervals. Two means. Independent samples (Part 1). Exercise
An exercise on confidence intervals for two means (independent samples).

67Calculating confidence intervals for two means with independent samples (part 2)
More often than not, we do not know the population variance, as it is too costly (or impossible) to have data on the whole population. We explore how to deal with the problem, through sample variance. We start from the simpler case, where we assume that the variance of the two samples is equal.

68Confidence intervals. Two means. Independent samples (Part 2). Exercise

69Calculating confidence intervals for two means with independent samples (part 3)
We conclude the section on confidence intervals with the example on independent samples, where the variance is unknown and assumed to be different. That is the most common case.

Hypothesis testing: Let's start testing!

72The null and the alternative hypothesis
Hypothesis testing is the heart of statistics. We start from the very basics: what are the null and alternative hypotheses. We show different examples and explain how to form hypotheses that are later to be tested.

73Further reading on null and alternative hypotheses

77Type I error vs Type II error
There are two errors one can make when testing  false positive and false negative. In order to be better statisticians, we must be acquainted with those issues.
