# Writing a Statistical Report

 Practice reports Review (work in progress) Analyse the MEAN or MEDIAN - How do you decide? The mean gives a smoother (more normal) distribution of the bootstrap re-samples. The Median is not influenced by unusually large or small values. So it the sample has some outlying values then use the MEDIAN, otherwise use the Mean. Or do both because the analysis is easy in iNZight and compare the two - considering the influence of outliers. Writing a Conclusion The formal inference used to answer question with justification and links to context. Includes interpretation of the confidence interval. An understanding of sampling variability is also evident. Also links the decision made to purpose. Findings clearly communicated and linked to population and context. Plus reflection on process or further explanations for findings.
