  • 00:00:00 In this video, Emma introduces the topic of quantitative data analysis, which is a complex topic that can be broken down into simple chunks. She covers the purposes of quantitative data analysis, as well as the two main branches of quantitative analysis: statistics and statistics analysis. She emphasizes that you don't need to be a statistician to do good quantitative analysis, and that the goal of this video is to demystify the process for those who are new to the topic.
  • 00:05:00 Descriptive statistics describe the specific details of a sample, while inferential statistics aim to make predictions about the population based on the findings within the sample. Statistical tests used in this branch of statistics include the mean, median, mode, and standard deviation.
  • 00:10:00 Descriptive statistics help you understand the details of a sample of data, and inferential statistics help you make predictions about the population.
  • 00:15:00 Statistical analysis is used to connect the dots and make predictions about what you'd expect to see in the real world population based on what you observe in your sample data. In this section, we look at some of the most common inferential statistical methods. First up is the t-test, which compares the means of two groups of data to assess whether they are different to a statistically significant extent. Next is the anova, which allows you to analyze multiple groups not just two. correlation analysis assesses the relationship between two variables, while regression analysis goes a step further to understand the cause and effect between variables.
  • 00:20:00 This video explains the basics of statistics and how to use various statistical methods to analyze data. It discusses the importance of data type and shape, as well as research questions and hypotheses. It also covers how to choose the right statistical method for the given data and research question.
  • 00:25:00 In this video, statistics are explained in simple terms and examples are given. The two main branches of statistics are descriptive and inferential, and each has its own set of methods. The main purposes of statistics are to describe a sample, to make predictions about the population from the sample, and to analyze relationships between variables.
