About: What Is Statistics: Crash Course Statistics #1

I did my bachelor in international business and I applied to a master in statistics...thinking I’ve never had it but I knew all these terms from my bachelor 🤦‍♀️
Funny how one tries to watch a video on statistics but Crash Course is getting filled with PC Easter Eggs.
what are the two types of statistics and what do they enable you to do??
WOW.....I have never liked or understood math at all but having to take math for my degree in ECE & finding out that statistics would count....I thought why not look into statistics & see if I can understand it.....& OMG the way you explain things makes me think I can actually GET THIS!!!!….. Totally switching classes now!!!!!
Only 148% of people understand statistics.
I have statistics this year and I’m super confused :D
Thanks!
Boring
Any tea lover will know. It's like coffee drinkers sometimes put their milk in first. Sometimes making up a drink I'll put water the flavoring in....
my questions on this lesson
5:09, because stats can only answer some questions, do you think stats could be wrong on certain questions because it may be a study of the majority. So some people may eat fast food and become stressed, but others could eat fast food to de-stress, and could stats figure out which one I am more likely to be eating fast food for?
Can you do a video on biostatics please.

I am the only one who paused the intro and read what they try to write?

Globally, there are approximately 1.5 billion domestic refrigerators and freezers in use today.

Yuma, AZ is the sunniest place on the planet, getting over 4,000 hours of sunshine per year!

The average American woman owns 30 outfits - on for every day of the month.

TVs in the average U.S home are turned on for more than a third of the day - 8 hours, 14 minutes!

The average U.S. house has 300,000 things in it.

We apparently only use 20% of the things we own.
Is course is easy or tough vs physics
Are there any other anxiety-ridden over-thinkers wondering if statistics would be right for them? Or should take a course for the hell of it? Lol constantly over-thinking and feel like this would help me try to make sense of the world around me in a way.
I loved this video! Great job. Thank you!
What ARE statistics....if you cannot tell the difference between one and more than one, you are not fit to comment on anything to do with math.
In case you were wondering the origin of the word "statistics" (courtesy Wiktionary):

From German Statistik, from New Latin statisticum (“of the state”) and Italian statista (“statesman, politician”). Statistik introduced by Gottfried Achenwall (1749), originally designated the analysis of data about the state.
I highly doubt it’s bad usage that causes injuries. Logging is just deadly even for the experienced expert.

What is statistics?
Statistics is a mathematical body of science that pertains to the collection, analysis, interpretation or explanation, and presentation of data, or as a branch of mathematics.
