summary. and analysis of data. which was invented by Legendre and Gauss. The development of statistical reasoning was closely associated with the development of inductive logic and the scientific method. The term "mathematical statistics" designates the mathematical theories of probability and statistical inference. In the 19th century. Electronic computers have expedited statistical computation. following Laplace. statistics increasingly used probability theory. physical scientists used statistical reasoning and probability models to advance the new sciences of thermodynamics and statistical mechanics. particularly in the analysis of games of chance (gambling). however. Today statistics is widely employed in government. which are used in statistical practice. particularly the method of least squares. probability and statistics have been in continual development. In the 19th century. the meaning of "statistics" broadened. In the early 19th century. then including the discipline concerned with the collection. The relation between statistics and probability theory developed rather late. Early probability theory and statistics was systematized and extended by Laplace.A BRIEF HISTORY OF STATISTICS By the 18th century. social scientists used statistical reasoning and probability models to advance the new sciences of experimental psychology and sociology. the term "statistics" designated the systematic collection of demographic and economic data by states. By 1800. and all the sciences. . whose initial results were found in the17th and 18th centuries. astronomy used probability models and statistical theories. and have allowed statisticians to develop "computer-intensive" methods. business.

Statistics is not a field of mathematics but an autonomous mathematical science. statistics has overlap with information science and computer science. Unlike mathematics. statistical theory has close association with the philosophy of science. . with its emphasis on learning from data and making best predictions. Being concerned with the scientific method and inductive logic. With its concerns with data. statistics had its origins in public administration and maintains a special concern with demography and economics. like computer science or operations research. statistics has great overlap with the decision science and microeconomics.

medicine. Many universities maintain separate mathematics and statistics departments. education. public health concerns (epidemiology.STATISTICS TODAY During the 20th century. Individuals and organizations use statistics to understand data and make informed decisions throughout the natural and social sciences. biostatistics. etc. business. and other areas. Statistics is also taught in departments as diverse as psychology. and public health.) necessitated substantial advances in statistical practices.). . and economic and social purposes (unemployment rate. albeit allied. etc. Statistics is generally regarded not as a subfield of mathematics but rather as a distinct.econometry. industrial quality control. Today the use of statistics has broadened far beyond its origins. field. the creation of precise instruments for agricultural research.

FURTHER EXPLORATION Index numbers are being used in many different daily situations. Obtain information from the internet or other reliable sources on the importance of two different types of index number of your choice. . stock market index. for example air pollution index. gold index and property index. Elaborate the use and the importance of these index numbers in daily life.

and each range is assigned a descriptor and a color code. Standardized public health advisories are associated with each AQI range. The atmosphere is a complex dynamic natural gaseous system that is essential to support life on planet Earth. particulates. Causes of Poor Air Quality The AQI can worsen (go up) due to lack of dilution of air emissions by fresh air. and is different in different countries. or damages the natural environment into the atmosphere. Limitations of the AQI Most air contaminants do not have an associated AQI.AIR POLLUTION INDEX Air pollution is the introduction of chemicals. an increasingly large percentage of the population is likely to experience increasingly severe adverse health effects. or other lack of winds lets air pollution remain in a local area. . To compute the AQI requires an air pollutant concentration from a monitor or model. Air quality index values are divided into ranges. As the AQI increases. particulate matter. carbon monoxide and nitrogen dioxide and calculate air quality indices for these pollutants. Stratospheric ozone depletion due to air pollution has long been recognized as a threat to human health as well as to the Earth's ecosystems. Many countries monitor ground-level ozone. The function used to convert from air pollutant concentration to AQI varies by pollutant. An agency might also encourage members of the public to take public transportation or work from home when AQI levels are high. The Air Quality Index (AQI) (also known as the Air Pollution Index (API) or Pollutant Standard Index (PSI) is a number used by government agencies to characterize the quality of the air at a given location. or biological materials that cause harm or discomfort to humans or other living organisms. sulphur dioxide. Stagnant air. often caused by an anticyclone or temperature inversion.

Indices by location South Korea The Ministry of Environment of South Korea uses the Comprehensice Air-quality Index (CAI) to describe the ambient air quality based on health risk of air pollution. Unlike the American AQI. Malaysia The air quality in Malaysia is reported as the API or Air Pollution Index. which are divided into six categories. nitrogen dioxide and sulfur dioxide) are reported in PM10 particulate matter is reported in g/m³. and all ports in the affected area closed. the highest is the CAI value. The higher the CAI value.Of values of the five air pollutants. . this means that non-essential government services are suspended. Usually. the index number can exceed 500. ozone. The index aims to help the public easily understand air quality level and protect the health of people from air pollution. There may also be a prohibition on private sector commercial and industrial activities in the reporting area excluding the food sector. Above 500. carbon monoxide. . a state of emergency is declared in the reporting area..e.The CAI has values of 0 through 500. Four of the index's pollutant components (i. the greater the level of air pollution. .

. A stock market index is a method of measuring a section of the stock market. Dow Jones Industrial Average. The most regularly quoted market indices are national indices composed of the stocks of large companies listed on a nation's largest stock exchanges.S. a result of the large number of tech. andS&P 500. including all U.STOCK MARKET INDEX A comparison of tree major U. reflects investor sentiment on the state of its economy.S. and the British FTSE 100. Russell Investment Group added to the family of indices by launching the Russell Global Index. The concept may be extended well beyond an exchange. Notice the large dot com spike on the NASDAQ. such as the American S&P 500. represents the stocks of nearly every publicly traded company in the United States. A 'world' or 'global' stock market index includes (typically large) companies without regard for where they are domiciled or traded. The Dow Jones Total Stock Market Index. companies on that index. stock indices: the NASDAQ Composite. All three have the same height at March 2007. to measure the performance of portfolios such as mutual funds. Types of indices Stock market indices may be classed in many ways. A national index represents the performance of the stock market of a given nation²and by proxy. Many indices are cited by news or financial services firms and are used as benchmarks. as its name implies. Two examples are MSCI World and S&P Global 100. the Japanese Nikkei 225. stocks traded on the New York Stock Exchange (but not ADRs) and most traded on the NASDAQ and American Stock Exchange.

float-adjusted price. for example. For example. As another example. have multiple versions. consists of 36 American firms in the biotechnology industry. or even more specialized criteria one index published by Linux Weekly News tracks stocks of companies that sell products and services based on the Linux operating environment. The Morgan Stanley Biotech Index. full capitalization price. the Wilshire 4500 and Wilshire 5000 indices have five versions each: full capitalization total return. which accounts for dividend reinvestment. such as the S&P 500. [1] These versions can differ based on how the index components are weighted and on how dividends are accounted for. Index versions Some indices. and equal weight versions is in how index components are weighted. The difference between the full capitalization. which accounts for dividend reinvestment after the deduction of a withholding tax. a certain type of management. and net total return. float-adjusted. and equal weight.More specialised indices exist tracking the performance of specific sectors of the market. . float-adjusted total return. total return. there are three versions of the S&P 500 index: price return. which only considers the price of the components. Other indices may track companies of a certain size.

. The stock market index is important because a country’s economical state sometimes depend on it.the air pollution index is use by the government to measure the quality of air index and to detect any pollutants in our country’s air. This type of index is used to determine the outcome of a stock market and also the conclusion of a stock market.USES AND IMPORTANCE OF AIR POLLUTION INDEX AND STOCK MARKET INDEX As everyone can see. it is mainly for the business entrepreneurs.Besides that.This warning is given based upon readings and unterpretations of the air index.an early warning can be given to us if the air pollution is too high for us to get out of our homes.This is to ensure the air is clean and safe for us ti inhale. As for the stock market index.

I saw that the usage of statistics is important in daily life.Especially in conducting an air-pollution survey.statistics is a daily life nessecities. .drawing graphs and some problem solving.we should be thankful of the people who contribute in the idea of statistics.surveys can’t be conducted.the stock market can’t be interpret and many more.CONCLUSION After doing research.It is not just widely used in markets but also in interpreting the condition of the surrounding like the air or the water.Without it.In conclusion.answering questions.So.
