# Statistics vocabulary

I have to write a speech in Spanish about a statistical investigation. Could anyone please suggest **basic words** or **phrases** in both Spanish and English(**such as after further investigation...**) that I could use to write my investigation. Thanks, any help would be appreciated.

As Qfreed had alluded to earlier, it will be a bit difficult to give you specific terms without knowing what aspect or type of statistical analysis, specifically, you were wanting to write about; however, here are a couple of references that might help you get started.

**Here's some statistics vocabulary... You can use the dictionary to find their Spanish equivalent**

probability

bias

unbaised

geometric distribution

discrete

random

variable

sequence

parameter

density

data

experiments

distribution

bell curve

mean

standard deviation

population

sample

sample size

observation

study

normal

type I, type II errors

null hypothesis

alternative hypothesis

significance

correlation

bar graph

Could you provide some example words that you are looking for? Basic statistical words like sum, norm, average, deviation, variance, standard deviation, bell shaped curves, normal distribution, frequency, etc. or are you looking for more advanced vocabulary?

Also, by investigation, do you mean do a statistical analysis?
