Descriptive statistics and data visualizations ( no plagiarism)

 

Introduction

Descriptive statistics play an important role in analyzing data. It numerically summarizes key characteristics of variables. Measures of central tendency (mean, median, and mode) and dispersion (variance, standard deviation, and range) characterize the probability distribution. A histogram visualizes the distribution of numerical data, indicating the number of data points that lie within a range of values. For this assignment, you will perform descriptive statistics and create a histogram for selected variables in a dataset.
