|WikiProject Statistics||(Rated Start-class, High-importance)|
Moved from the main article as it doesn't belong here:
- One consequence of a network effect is that the purchase of a good by one individual indirectly benefits others who own the good - for example by purchasing a telephone a person makes other people's telephones more useful. This type of side effect in a transaction is known as an externality in economics, and externalities arising from network effects are known as network externalities.
Under the Descriptive Statistics part of the Statistics bar at the bottom of the page, there are Continuous and Catagorical, but these do not exhaustively describe all the types of data, which include count data, also known as Ordinal data. Briancady413 (talk) 19:15, 8 December 2009 (UTC)
Missing table and figure
Subsection Summarizing_statistical_data#Distribution refers to "Table 1" and "Figure 2" which the wiki page does not contain.
The source of this material is http://www.socialresearchmethods.net/kb/statdesc.php which contains the table and figure referred to. What is the right way to fix it - (a) removing the references; or (b) adapting the table and figure from the original source? -- CaptSolo (talk) 23:14, 16 January 2012 (UTC)
