descriptive statistics


A set of statistical measurements, and the practice of using them, to quantitatively describe the main features of a dataset or population. Descriptive statistics allow a scientist to quickly and concisely summarize the central tendency and spread, or variability, of a data set. These measurements commonly include the mean, median, and standard deviation, but can also include graphical representations of a dataset.
