# What is univariate and bivariate analysis with examples?

When you conduct a study that looks at a single variable, that study involves univariate data. For example, you might study a group of college students to find out their average SAT scores or you might study a group of diabetic patients to find their weights. Bivariate data is when you are studying two variables.

Also question is, what is the difference between bivariate and univariate?

Mentor: Bivariate data is data that involves two different variables whose values can change. Bivariate data deals with relationships between these two variables. This type of data is known as univariate data and it does not deal with relationships, but rather it is used to describe something.

Similarly, what does univariate analysis mean? Univariate analysis is the simplest form of analyzing data. “Uni” means “one”, so in other words your data has only one variable. It doesn't deal with causes or relationships (unlike regression) and it's major purpose is to describe; it takes data, summarizes that data and finds patterns in the data.

Keeping this in consideration, what is an example of univariate data?

Univariate means "one variable" (one type of data). Example: You weigh the pups and get these results: 2.5, 3.5, 3.3, 3.1, 2.6, 3.6, 2.4. The "one variable" is Puppy Weight. If you have two sets of data, such as ice cream sales vs temperature, it is called "Bivariate Data".

What does bivariate analysis mean?

Bivariate analysis is one of the simplest forms of quantitative (statistical) analysis. It involves the analysis of two variables (often denoted as X, Y), for the purpose of determining the empirical relationship between them. Like univariate analysis, bivariate analysis can be descriptive or inferential.
