Inferential Statistics

Inferential Statistics

Unlike descriptive statistics, inferential statistics provide ways of testing the reliability of the findings of a study and “inferring” characteristics from a small group of participants or people (your sample) onto much larger groups of people (the population). Descriptive statistics just describe the data, but inferential let you say what the data mean. An example of inferential statistics is the analysis of variance (ANOVA).
