Studying Some Statistics

As I mentioned before, in Indonesia there are various quick count results. In social media, people waste their time in argument about which result is right. I’ve ever said that I can’t stand conflict so I decided to study statistics instead.

I studied statistics when I was at school so I still remember some basic measures like mean, median, and modus. I knew the use of mean and modus but I didn’t really understand why we should consider median. I then found a basic statistics web site. In that site, we can study not only how to measure but also when to do it and why.

I also found another website called STATS. If you click STATS Simplified in that site, you will find explanation of some terms that you may hear or read in statistical report.

Good luck in study statistics! Ya’atik el ‘afi.
