**Analytical and Descriptive Statistics**

There are two types of statistics: the analytical or inferential statistics and the descriptive or enumerative statistics.

While the analytical statistics are used to get to conclusions about a specific sample data, the descriptive statistics are used to give more information about some particular data that you're analyzing.

Just assume a simple example, taking into account that this should never be used as a sample of the population because it clearly has small data. Let's say that you're in a school making a survey regarding a particular toy. The ages of the children who answer the survey are 4, 8, and 9 years old. When you look at this data based on the analytical statistics, you could say that the age average of the children in question was 7.
