Business statistics is described as the science of making decisions based on an analysis in auditing, production, and econometrics. Business statistics is divided into inferential and descriptive statistics.
Descriptive statistics is divided into two: measures of dispersion, measures of central tendency, measurement of frequency, and measures of position. On the other hand, people make assumptions on measuring parameters such as specimen data statistics in inferential statistics. Inferential statistics is divided into T-test, Chi-Square, Cone sample hypothesis test, confidence interval, multivariate regression, Pearson correlation, and bivariate regression.
Sampling of Business Data
Data sampling is a statistical method used in analyzing trends and patterns in a data set. In this case, sampling is used in determining the amount of data to collect and after how long it should be collected. A sampling of business data is divided into 6 methods: stratified sampling, systematic sampling, simple random sampling, probability sampling, cluster sampling, and multi-stage sampling. When sampling business data occurs, it requires statistical conclusions about the observations' data set.
Correlation and Regression
Correlation and regression are related because both deal with relationships among themselves. Correlation analysis is used in quantifying the relationship between two continuous variables, such as a dependent variable and an independent variable. It can also apply to two independent variables. On the other hand, regression analysis shows the relationship between variables' outcome variables. The degree association between correlation and regression is measured by 'r' after its originator with a linear association measure.
