Describing Data—Descriptive Statistics

Descriptive statistics are an important part of public health research. Nearly every quantitative research project starts with descriptive statistics. Descriptive statistics summarize the data in a meaningful way and describe the basic features of the data. Descriptive statistics can take many forms. They may include numeric and/or graphical representations of the data. They may explain the central tendency or spread of the data. They also may help to reveal certain characters for further analysis or identify potential variables for inferential analysis.
