From the Bus Survey Project, we learnt how to gather real world data, make sense out of it by analysing the patterns and (we will) eventually make suggestions/recommendations based on data.

In the following video clip, we will learn how data (in the study of Statistics) has enabled mankind to make big and small decisions, that either impact the individuals or the bigger community.

Look out for the following key segments in Data Handling:

  1. Describing Data
  2. Producing Data
  3. Conclusions from Data
