    Among the free-wares, the R software is most popular one. Random error does not occur in any consistent pattern, and it is not controllable by the researcher. The correlation between the two subsets of questions is called the split-half reliability. Qualitative research refers to the meanings, definitions, characteristics, symbols, metaphors, and description of things. Descriptive research methods are pretty much as they sound — they describe situations. Distinguish between basic research and applied research.

    There is no significant relationship between perceived need for the new product and the price that customers would be willing to pay for it. Generally, validity is based solely on the judgment of the researcher. Eg:- WTO does problem oriented research for developing countries, in India agriculture and processed food export development authority APEDA conduct regular research for the benefit of agri-industry. Knowledge Base written by Prof William M. Phenomenology:-a form of research in which the researcher attempts to understand how one or more individuals experience a phenomenon.

    If you have struggled with the concepts and methods that are presented here, you will indeed struggle in any of the graduate level courses included in the Master of Applied Statistics program above STAT that expect and build on this foundation. Self-Assessment Procedure Review the concepts and methods on the pages in this section of this website. Systematic error is introduced through a constant bias in a measurement. If every respondent gives the same answer to an item, there is no variability, and when a measurement lacks variability, no statistical tests can be or need be performed.
