Study design

This course is a part of High school statistics, a 7-course Topic series from Khan Academy.

Getting reliable data is vital if we want to make correct conclusions.The process of collecting data through studies involves sampling, observations, surveys, and experiments.

This course contains 2 segments:

Samples and surveys

If we want to know something about a large group of people, we can take a sample and give them a survey. This tutorial introduces how that process works.

Observational studies and experiments

“A new study shows that people who eat lobster regularly tend to live longer.” That may be true, but it doesn’t necessarily mean that eating lobster causes people to live longer. We could set up an experiment to find out if lobster is truly the cause. This tutorial covers the difference between observational studies and experiments.
