Help! The statistics appear overwhelming to me. I do not even know some basic concepts, such as the mean, mode, and medium. Is there an introductory book about statistics for rookies like me?

Luckily, the Hong Kong government has been making efforts to improve statistical literacy. Every year the Census and Statistics Department will update a new version of "Living with Statistics" on the website. In the book, you may find some concepts and methods of statistics. https://www.censtatd.gov.hk/hkstat/sub/sc460.jsp?productCode=B8XX0025

In my evaluation project, I used a new scale that had never been tested among Hong Kong patients. Do I need to conduct a factor analysis before data analysis?

Hi, I realized that it seems the concept “outcome” is different from the term “output”. Taking the grandparent training project as an example, what is the “outcome’ referable?
