Statistical inference is the application of statistical methods to a set of data in order to infer conclusions about the data sample drawn from a population. Use Wolfram|Alpha's powerful algorithmic know-how to compute the validity of hypotheses, the sample size required to draw valid conclusions and the confidence intervals for various inferred population statistics.

Compute the sample size necessary to draw statistically valid conclusions about a population from a dataset.

Test the validity of hypotheses and conjectures regarding statistical quantities derived from a sample of data.

Compute the confidence intervals for population statistics based on sample size or the characteristics of the data sample.
