You are the manager at a company and are asked to present a report on the year-to-date performance of your division. What type of statistical information would you include in your report?

Things vary in life – virtually nothing (except physical standards such as the speed of light) we interact with is constant over time.

Much of this variation follows somewhat predictable patterns that can be examined using probability.

An example of a subjective probability is: “Cops usually do not patrol this road, so I can get away with speeding.”

An empirical probability example is: “Each production run has a 5% reject rate.”

Data, even numerically code variables, can be one of 4 levels – nominal, ordinal, interval, or ratio.

It is important to identify which level a variable is, as this impacts the kind of analysis we can do with the data.

For example, descriptive statistics such as means can only be done on interval or ratio level data.
