Analyzing data by using descriptive statistics
Experienced business people can tell a lot about numbers just by looking at them, such as
whether the numbers “feel right.” That is, the sales figures are about where they’re
supposed to be for a particular hour, day, or month; the average seems about right; and sales
have increased from year to year. When you need more than an informal assessment,
however, you can use the tools in the Analysis ToolPak.
If the Data Analysis item isn’t visible in the Analysis group on the Data tab, you can install
it. To do so, click the File tab, and then click Options. In the Excel Options dialog box, click
Add-Ins to display the Add-Ins page. At the bottom of the dialog box, in the Manage list,
click Excel Add-Ins, and then click Go to display the Add-Ins dialog box. Select the Analysis
ToolPak check box and click OK.
TIP You might be prompted for the Microsoft Office system installation CD. If so, put the
CD in your CD drive, and click OK.
