back to [[Statistics]] '''Statistical Inference''' is a collection of procedures designed to allow us to make reliable conclusions from data collected from [[Statistical Samples]] to real or hypothetical [[Statistical Populations]]. It is the formal name of what we call [[Interpreting Statistical Data]]. The most common forms of statistical inference are: #[[Point Estimation]] #[[Interval Estimation]] #[[Hypothesis Testing]] #[[Decision Making]] There are several distinct schools of thought about the justification of statistical inference. All are based on some idea of what real world phenomena can be reasonably modeled as [[Probability]]. #[[Frequency Probability]] #[[Personal Probability]] #[[Eclectic Probability]] ---- [[Dick Beldin]]
