The two primary tasks that statistics can achieve are to:
identify causal relationships among variables and rule out competing explanations for a set of findings.
determine the practical significance of a research finding and identify potential applications of it.
verify a researcher’s hypotheses and convince others in the scientific community of the merits of the work.
summarize the information from a study or experiment and to make judgments and decisions about the data.
