Textbook Problem

In your own words, describe, the role of statistics in the research process. Using the “wheel of science” as a framework, explain how statistics link theory with research.

Expert Solution

To determine

**To describe:**

The role of statistics in the research process.

**Solution:**

The role of statistics in research is explained below.

**Given:**

The given statements are,

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. Then the data is analysed by the application of different statistical methods. The results of the analysis are then used to draw meaningful inferences and conclusions of the study.

These meaningful conclusions are relevant to the current as well as future studies.
