It helps to think of data as 'value' of quantitative and qualitative variables

What are the variable types :
  Numerical or Quantitative: (Continuous and Discrete)

Descriptive Statistics

Quantitatively describing the data
  - Graphical representation

Descriptive versus Inferential. The use of sample and Population

Single and Multiple variable

Graphical Representation : Multiple Variables

Scatter Plots: Two quantitative variables
Box plots - One categorical with one quantitative variable
Contingency tables - categorical variables with frequency of occurrence as the theme.
