It's all about uncertainty

Chapter

Abstract

  • This chapter is aimed at providing the foundation for common sense issues that underlie why and what statistics is, so it is not a math chapter, relax! We will start with the concepts of the universe and a sample, discuss the conceptual issues of estimation and hypothesis testing and put into context the question of how certain are we that a research result in the sample studied reflects what is true in the universe. © Springer Science + Business Media B.V. 2008.
