  • Glen McPherson
Part of the Springer Texts in Statistics book series (STS)

Abstract

The idea was introduced in Chapter 1 that statistics provides a means of using data collected in a study together with other factual information to gain knowledge of the population or process from which the information was collected. There is a formal structure by which statistics is employed for this purpose, and it involves the construction of statistical models.
