Inferential Statistical Analysis

  1. The basis of inferential (testing) statistical analysis is that data are composed of two elements,

    a. theoretical expectation + error
    b. mean + standard error

    Would the two correct elements be listed in choice a.?

    The mean of a sample and the standard error (which is the sample’s standard deviation?) is more descriptive than inferential (testing), right? (Or did I completely confuse the terms?)

    Thank you.
