    Abstract

    Statistics plays a central role in research, planning and decision-making in almost all natural and social sciences. It is the Science of collecting, organizing, analyzing, interpreting and presenting data. It deals with all aspects of this, including not only the collection, analysis and interpretation of such data, but also the planning of the collection of data, in terms of the design of surveys and experiments. Two types of statistical methods are used in analysing data: descriptive statistics and inferential statistics. Inferential statistics makes inferences and predictions about a population based on a sample of data taken from the population in question. Descriptive statistics uses the data to provide descriptions of the population, either through numerical calculations or graphs or tables. Descriptive statistics therefore enables us to present the data in a more meaningful way, which allows simpler interpretation of the data.
