Statistics: On Measurement, the Normal Distribution, and the Two Types of Statistics

Greetings, stats. and social-sciences students!

We here at the blog apologize for missing our weekly installment last week, but hope to make it up to you this week with not just one but two substantial new videos from Kyle T.’s seminar! In these videos, Kyle discusses the various types of measurement and statistics that can be taken and performed, to describe and analyze data. He also explains the useful abstraction that is the Normal Distribution, a concept (as he equates) as fundamental to statistics as the concept of the circle is to geometry. Exciting stuff!

Next week: Null-Hypothesis Statistical Testing, the backbone of practically all social-scientific research-analyses. Stay tuned!

Yours,

The Veritas Team
