In this discussion, you will explore the use of inferential and descriptive analysis in public safety agencies. Selecting 2 different public safety agencies, find 1 example displaying the use of descriptive data and 1 example reflecting inferential analysis. In 2 paragraphs, you will introduce your examples to the class, name the type of analysis undertaken, and suggest other types of statistical analysis that could be undertaken with these data or by including other data.
The specific steps are as follows:
- Engage in independent research, and find 2 different public safety agencies using statistical analysis.
- Of your selected examples, 1 example must reflect the use of descriptive data and 1 must be an example of inferential analysis.
- Write a post introducing this research to your classmates.
- Engage in a discussion with your classmates on the diverse types of statistical analysis and how they are used to improve public safety.
