Graduate Student Library Introduction

Understanding Data and Statistics

Many graduate programs will require you to find, collect, analyze, interpret, and understand data and statistics. The ODU Libraries are here to help you make sense of it all.

Statistics are data that have been analyzed in some way so that you can visualize and understand the data connections – percentages, graphs, charts – also called “statistical data."

Data include sets of raw numbers, usually with many variables, and with the capability of being manipulated.
