Review the Learning Resources for this week and other resources you have found in the Library or online, then respond to the following bullet points in a 2- to 3-page:
- What is the goal of a descriptive statistic?
- Provide an example of a descriptive statistic HR may use (besides turnover).
- Identify another variable that can be employed to provide more insight (Pease, Byerly and Fitz-enz refer to this as “stats on steroids”).
- Imagine you could look into the future to see if trends continue. What impact could an understanding of this data have for the organization?
