Statistics

Statistics is funky, and there is a lot of it. I'm not sure I'll do any justice to an organization of this topic, but here goes nothing.

Types of statistics

Data analysis

108 Data Analysis is an associated topic to Statistics.

Descriptive statistics

Descriptive statistics is self-describing :) Most of 108.30.10 Data Analysis - Structural analysis is "descriptive" because we have all the data and we're simply trying to format and visualize it to summarize the data and learn things which may not be easily apparent.

Inferential statistics

Inferential stats is when you need to infer knowledge from a data set that is not complete. E.g. Prediction of future data based on the currently available data, or probability of distribution of future values.
