2 Describe Categorical Data For categorical data, we use Frequency. 3 % (n = 83) of the study population. As mentioned previously, we do not have to describe the male information because, when we know percentage of female, automatically we know the percentage of male. 3 Describe Gender using Frequencies SPSS Analysis: Frequency 1. 2. 3. 4. 1. 4 Analytical Statistics When we do research, we normally collect data from samples and not the entire population. To infer the statistics back to the population, we use analytical statistics which is also known as inferential statistics.

We need to test the hypothesis. Let us use the same example about smoking and hypertension. The hypothesis could be that the prevalence of hypertension among smokers is higher than among the non-smokers. If the prevalence of hypertension among smokers is 45 % and non-smokers 40 %, we must decide whether the 5 % difference is true for the population or just occurred coincidently in the sample that we studied. If it is indeed by chance, the value will not be consistent when we repeat it using different sets of samples from the same population.
