# Handbook of Descriptive Statistics

From Wikibooks, open books for an open world

This book aims to function as a comprehensive reference guide to the measures used in descriptive statistics. For a general introduction to statistics, see Statistics instead.

It has a section on all the common measures, and they are categorised according to type. Initially we shall concentrate on univariate statistics. Entries should be brief, information-packed and not overly tutorial in nature. Assume a reader which already has a basic knowledge of statistics, and needs detailed information or a refresher.

See Template for how an entry should look.
