The famous American statistician John Tukey once said, “Exploratory data analysis can never be the whole story, but nothing else can serve as the foundation stone – as the first step.” The term exploratory data analysis is selfdefining. Its simplest branch, descriptive statistics, is the methodology behind approaching and summarizing experimental data. No formal statistical training is needed for its use.
