Statistical Journey

Rediscovering Statistical Marvels: Reliving my Statistical Journey

As I retrace my steps down the familiar path of statistics, I can't help but feel a sense of excitement and nostalgia. You see, I hold an undergraduate degree in Psychology from Penn State, where I delved deep into statistical concepts related to the humanities. Subsequently, I pursued a master's degree in Research Administration from Central Michigan, honing my skills in managing research endeavors.

However, as time passed, the demands of life led me away from the realm of numbers and formulas. While my journey took me through diverse landscapes, I've always known that the statistical marvels I encountered were old friends waiting to be rediscovered. In the day-to-day most report demand dimple frequencies.  However, I want to keep my statistical skills sharp and in the forefront of my mind! 

Hence, this blog serves as my personal odyssey, a journey of rekindling my passion for statistics and reawakening my analytical prowess. I invite you to join me on this adventure as we revisit the statistical wonders that once captivated my mind and discover new insights along the way.

Though I possess a solid foundation in statistical concepts, I firmly believe that knowledge flourishes when continuously nurtured. And so, I strive to revive these skills that, left unattended, could fade away over time. I have come to realize that neglecting the tools I once wielded with confidence would be a disservice to the inquisitive mind within me.

This blog is more than just a refresher course; it's an opportunity to refresh my perspective on data analysis, experimental design, and hypothesis testing through the lens of experience. As we embark on this shared journey, I promise to approach each topic with newfound curiosity and enthusiasm, drawing upon my background in Psychology and Research Administration to add depth and context to our explorations.

Together, we will unravel the statistical enigmas that permeate not only the realms of academia and research but also our everyday lives. From understanding social phenomena to making informed decisions and interpreting the world around us, statistics offers boundless insights for those who seek them.

While I recount the familiar, we'll also venture into uncharted territories, exploring the evolving landscape of statistical methods, tools, and applications. Our discussions will extend beyond theory, delving into the practical implications and ethical considerations that underpin the world of data. The goal is to use Python to delve deeper into these concepts.  The goal is to learn - "sharpen the saw" from past eras. 

As we reconnect with these old friends—regression, ANOVA, chi-square, and beyond—we'll also embrace new friends in the form of modern data analytics and emerging trends. Together, we will evolve alongside the statistical world, nurturing a community of learners passionate about making sense of the vast sea of data surrounding us.

So, let's embark on this renewed statistical journey, blending the wisdom of experience with the thrill of rediscovery. I invite you to share your insights, experiences, and questions, for it is in the spirit of collaboration that we truly grow.

Let's rekindle the fire of statistical curiosity and embark on this enlightening voyage once more!
