Collecting data often involves the use of computers. Simulations allow you to study situations that are impractical or even dangerous to create in real life, and often they save time and money. For instance, automobile manufacturers use simulations with dummies to study the effects of crashes on humans. Throughout this course, you will have the opportunity to use applets that simulate statistical processes on a computer. • A survey is an investigation of one or more characteristics of a population.
