Explain the role of statistics in the research process.

Explain how statistics link theory with research, using “The wheel of science” as a framework.

Statistics is considered to be one of the most prominent and reliable tool for the research process. It provides precise and accurate results and is convenient for almost all kinds of research.

The wheel of science explains the role of statistics in research.

Consider, the statement that in a school, the average height of girls is less than that of boys.

The first step of the study goes by laying out the hypothesis of the study. Once, the hypothesis are defined, the next step is of collecting appropriate data according to the study.
