**Like dreams, statistics are a form of wish fulfillment.**

*-Jean Baudrillard*

This is not my first time to encounter Statistics. I studied about this before but not even gave my best try of seriousness and it was just a full of nonsense way. Right now, Statistics gives me a millions of wanderlust of exploring the world of critical scrutiny. Not to say, I wish to be like Albert, you know him… “The great Eistein” remember? Well, he was a genius one. But, in this case, I formally admire to Sir Ronald Aylmer Fisher, the father of modern Statistics. I met him just this semester. For almost a month of sacrificing and not enjoying my rest days just working out my Statistics exercises and final exam, I could tell how his life is amazing. It’s a magical learning. It isn’t killing me, anyway.

**Here are some statistical ideas with corresponding statistical formula I’ve learnt from my professor:**

**1. Statistic vs. Statistics**

**Statistic**– The data gathered from the study.

**Statistics**– The practice of collecting and analyzing the data gathered.

**2. **** Z and T-test ****(One and Two Samples) **

**Z test**(Z-score) is used to measure more than 30 population.

**T-test**is used to measure less than 30 population. This two statistical test are used to find the variances of two normal distributions which are unknown.

**3. F Statistic**

**Analysis of variance (ANOVA)**is the procedure used when there are more than two levels of independent variable to investigate.

**F-statistic**is a value resulting from a standard statistical test used in ANOVA and regression analysis to determine if the variances between the means of two populations are significantly different.

**4. Correlation and Regression**

**Correlation**measures the relative position congruence between two variables.

**Regression**allows the use of the relationship in the prediction of one variable given a score on the other variable.

**5. ****Chi-Square**

**one-way or one-variable chi-square test**is also known as the

**goodness-of-fit test**. This test compares a set of

**observed frequencies (O)**with a set of

**expected frequencies (E)**.

**Chi-Square Formula**

**Analysis:**

I love your blog and writing style! I nominated you for the Liebster award which you can check out at: http://josephinebeth.blogspot.co.uk/2015/03/liebster-award.html

I hope you accept the award! and keep blogging! – xo

Thank you so much for your wonderful thoughts Josephine. And thanks for nominating me. ^.^

Well, Statistics drove me insane too so I guess it's not impossible that it will do the same to you. ðŸ˜›

Glad to have found your blog. ðŸ™‚
