dc.description.abstract The purpose of this study is to trace the historical development of that part of modern statistical procedures known as statistical inference. Although the application of statistical methods is concerned more than ever with the study of great masses of data, percentages, and columns of figures, statistics has moved far beyond the descriptive stage. Using concepts from mathematics, logic, economics, and psychology, modern statistics has developed into a designed "way of thinking" about conclusions or decisions to help a person choose a reasonable course of action under uncertainty. The general theory and methodology is called statistical inference.
