Descriptive statistics

6-1 Discussion: Descriptive Statistics


Descriptive statistics are used to assess the quality of your data. What information are you looking for from a data dictionary to help you identify anomalies, outliers, and errors? What can you do if you have additional questions about the data?

In your initial discussion post, provide an example of an anomaly, an outlier, or an error you might find when running descriptive statistics of your data, and explain how you would resolve the issue.
