Re: statistics

Hi:
These links represent the first hit on each page using the following search strings (in Google):

Search string: What are descriptive statistics
http://www.socialresearchmethods.net/kb/statdesc.php

Search string: What are summary statistics
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Summary_statistics

Search string: SAS "descriptive statistics"
http://www.ats.ucla.edu/STAT/sas/modules/descript.htm


These links represent hits on support.sas.com, when searching with the strings descriptive statistics and summary statistics -- and then looking for the documentation on the procedures that showed up in the first set of hits:
Proc FREQ documentation:
http://support.sas.com/documentation/cdl/en/procstat/59629/HTML/default/procstat_freq_sect001.htm

Proc UNIVARIATE documentation:
http://support.sas.com/documentation/cdl/en/procstat/59629/HTML/default/procstat_univariate_sect003....

Proc MEANS documentation:
