Words Quantitative Researchers and Statisticians Use

Words Quantitative Researchers and Statisticians Use

I have been thinking a lot lately about how to communicate quantitative results to a wider audience. A big part of the problem lies on concepts that are very specific to the the field (a problem that happens on physics, chemistry, basically any science). So when we talk about means, distributions, t-tests what do we actually mean? And can we explain it to people outside the field with simple words? Well I decided to try! I used the xkcd’s simple writer which checks whether you are using words only on the top 1000 most used English words. I will be updating this glossary as I think of more terms or figure out how to explain them!
