The mean is a particularly informative measure of the "central tendency" of the variable if it is reported along with its confidence intervals.

As mentioned earlier, usually we are interested in statistics (such as the mean) from our sample only to the extent to which they can infer information about the population. The confidence intervals for the mean give us a range of values around the mean where we expect the "true" (population) mean is located (with a given level of certainty, see also Elementary Concepts).

Note that the width of the confidence interval depends on the sample size and on the variation of data values. The larger the sample size, the more reliable its mean. The larger the variation, the less reliable the mean (see also Elementary Concepts).

The calculation of confidence intervals is based on the assumption that the variable is normally distributed in the population. Shape of the Distribution, Normality.

An important aspect of the "description" of a variable is the shape of its distribution, which tells you the frequency of values from different ranges of the variable. Typically, a researcher is interested in how well the distribution can be approximated by the normal distribution (see the animation below for an example of this distribution) (see also Elementary Concepts).

Simple descriptive statistics can provide some information relevant to this issue. For example, if the skewness (which measures the deviation of the distribution from symmetry) is clearly different from 0, then that distribution is asymmetrical, while normal distributions are perfectly symmetrical.

More precise information can be obtained by performing one of the tests of normality to determine the probability that the sample came from a normally distributed population of observations (e. However, none of these tests can entirely substitute for a visual examination of the data using a histogram (i. The graph allows you to evaluate the normality of the empirical distribution because it also shows the normal curve superimposed over the histogram. It also allows you to examine various aspects of the distribution qualitatively.

For example, the distribution could be bimodal (have 2 peaks). This might suggest that the sample is not homogeneous but possibly its elements came from two different populations, each more or less normally distributed. In such cases, in order to understand the nature of the variable in question, you should look for a way to quantitatively identify the two sub-samples.If you are connecting via Windows, make sure to turn off file sharing and mark the Wi-Fi connection as a public network.

Under the Public heading, turn off the file sharing toggle. You may also want to turn on the Windows Firewall when connecting to a public network if it's not already activated. On Mac, open up System Preferences and navigate to the Sharing icon.

Then, untick the checkbox next to File Sharing. Here's a full rundown on how to disable sharing and removing public home folder sharing options in OS X. Creating a virtual private network (VPN) is one of the best ways to keep your browsing session under wraps.

A VPN client encrypts traffic between your device and the VPN server, which means it's much more difficult for a would-be intruder to sniff your data. If you don't already have a VPN set up through your employer or workplace, there are other options available. That's plenty of scope for checking email, looking at maps and other casual Wi-Fi uses. CyberGhost is another option that offers a free tier, but also has a paid version that boosts speed. For detailed instructions, here's how to set up a VPN on an iOS device and on Android.

There are many other VPN services available, including paid and free options. It's worth doing your research to work out which is best for your needs, especially if you are a heavy-duty user.

Like the old saying goes, check for the lock in your browser to make sure it's secure. One way you can force your browser to use HTTPS is through an extension, such as HTTPS Everywhere. This is available for Chrome, Firefox, Firefox for Android, and Opera. It's important to note that HTTPS Everywhere works by activating encryption on all supported parts of the website.

As outlined in its FAQ:It's time to start forming some good patching habits. Keep your browser and internet-connected devices up to date with the latest versions, but make sure to do this on a trusted home or work network -- not on public Wi-Fi.

There have been instances of travelers being caught off guard when connecting to public or hotel Wi-Fi networks when their device prompts them to update a software package. If accepted by the user, malware was installed on the machine. Also, if you're on a mobile device, don't assume that your apps are automatically secure or using HTTPS. Unless outlined by the app developer, it's safest to presume that the app is not conducting a secure transaction. In this case, you should use your browser to log on to the service, and check for a HTTPS connection in the status bar.

It's good practice to enable two-factor authentication on services that support it, such as Gmail, Twitter and Facebook. This way, even if someone does manage to sniff out your password when on public Wi-Fi, you have an added layer of protection. On the topic of passwords, try not to use the same password across multiple services.

There are plenty of password managers available to make your life easier -- here are six of our favorites. Once you are all done with your Web browsing, make sure to log off any services you were signed into. Then, tell your device to forget the network. This means that your phone or PC won't automatically connect again to the network if you're in range. Click on "Wireless Properties" and then uncheck "Connect automatically when this network is in range.

Then uncheck "Remember networks this computer has joined. In Android, you can do this by entering into your Wi-Fi network list, long press the network name and select "Forget Network.

Finally, be very careful with what you do on public unsecured Wi-Fi. It's best to save that Internet banking session for when you're able to connect via cellular data, or on a secure network.
