Quantitative analysis may include descriptive statistics and/or inferential statistics. Descriptive statistics provide a way to summarize large amounts of information using frequencies (counts), percents, ranks, measures of central tendency (e.g., mean, median, and mode), and measures of variability (e.g., range, standard deviation). Inferential statistics allow you to test for statistically significant differences. Your choice of statistical tests will be determined by the research questions you seek to answer and the nature of the data collected.
