Abstract

DUQUIA, Rodrigo Pereira et al. Describing numerical variables: which are the most appropriate parameters to describe the data?. An. Bras. Dermatol. [online]. 2017, vol.92, n.6, pp.841-843. ISSN 1806-4841.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/abd1806-4841.20174904.

The proper description of numerical variables is very important when presenting a set of data. Measures of central tendency and dispersion are used to adequately understand a set of numerical variables. Knowledge of the properties of these measures and their adequate use provide the reader with a better understanding of the results of a study.

Keywords : Analytical epidemiology; Epidemiology; Epidemiology, descriptive.
