back to [[Statistics/Theory]] -- [[Statistics/Applied]] [[Statistics]], like all mathematical disciplines does not generate valid conclusions from nothing. Every [[Mathematical Theorem]] requires a set of assumptions or [[hypotheses]] from which its conclusions are derived. [[Mathematical Proof]]s are procedures for transforming hypotheses into conclusions. The most common statistical assumptions are: #independence of observations from each other (see [[Statistical Independence]]) #independence of observational error from potential confounding effects #exact or approximate normality of observations (see [[Normal Distribution]] #linearity of graded responses to quantitative stimuli (see [[Linear Regression]]) ---- [[Dick Beldin]]
