Learn how to graphically summarize the descriptive statistics of a set of data. Describing the data set with statistical measures of central tendency such as Mean, Median, Mode, and statistical measures of dispersion such as Standard Deviation and Variance, as well as the shape of the distribution of the data, and testing it for normality, are all part of what Minitab can do in its graphical summary of descriptive statistics. These graphical summaries of descriptive statistics are done easily with Minitab!
- [Voiceover] In this movie, I will show you…how to create graphical summaries…of the descriptive statistics of a set of data.…Open exercise file 03-02 and here we have…the two vendors and their delivery times.…To provide a graphical display,…showing the various statistics,…I can go up to stats, basic statistics,…graphical summary.…Highlight those two, A and B…and a confidence level 95 percent…can be changed if you like, although default is 95.…
And select okay.…And here you have a very nice, couple of graphs…summarizing the data set.…Let's put them together and size it…so they can be seen side by side.…And there you have it, you have the…histogram with a normal cove…fit…and then you have the box plot…and confidence intervals for the mean…and medians shown on the left.…And on the right, you have the…various stats including the edition darling normality test…the means and deviation, variants, various stats,…median, the quartiles and the confidence…intervals for the mean, median, and senate deviation here.…
This is one of my favorite commands in minitab…
Dr. Richard Chua shows how to import and organize data; open, save, and share Minitab worksheets and projects; create graphs and charts; and use descriptive statistics and statistical tests in Minitab to make inferences and data-driven decisions. Then learn how to make inferences on continuous data—running normality tests, variance tests, correlations, and simple regression tests. Finally, discover how to share your findings with others using reports and simple copy-and-paste techniques. Start watching to learn why Minitab is one of the world's most popular statistical software tools.
