# Descriptive Statistics Exams

Descriptive Statistics is the branch of mathematics and statistics used to analyze and present data in a meaningful way. It is used to summarize the characteristics of a large dataset by extracting key features, such as the mean, median, mode, range, and standard deviation. Descriptive Statistics can be used to compare different datasets or highlight trends over time. Descriptive Statistics often involves summarizing complex data into visual presentations like charts and tables so that patterns can be easily identified. Graphs such as histograms, scatter plots, line graphs, pie charts and bar graphs are commonly used for this purpose. Descriptive Statistics can also involve statistical tests such as correlation analysis to determine the strength of relationships between variables in the dataset. In addition to summarizing and visualizing data, Descriptive Statistics also includes techniques for detecting outliers or errors in datasets. Outliers are points that are far removed from the typical range of values found in a dataset; they may indicate errors or irregularities with the data collection process or even suggest important patterns that need further exploration. Similarly, descriptive techniques can reveal unusual distributions or correlations among variables within a dataset which could point towards potential causes behind observed trends. Descriptive Statistics is an invaluable tool for those interested in understanding large amounts of complicated data quickly and accurately.
