Enumerative v. Analytic Studies


Statistics and Reality, David and Sarah Kerridge

"W Edwards Deming distinguished between two types of statistical study, which he called “Enumerative” and “Analytic”. This sounds theoretical, and it is: but it is also very practical. It affects everything we do, if we base action on figures. Nothing could be more important: it is about the way that statistics relates to reality."
