When choosing a statistical test it is important that you known what you want to test. When doing a specific statistical test and it is significant it is important to verify the shape and and the sample size. For more information what are the restrictions of each test see the specific page of the test.

- Mean/Median
- Variation
- Linear relations

- Overview

- Normal Distribution one sample t-test
- Not Normal Distribution 1 sample Wilcoxon median test

- Normal Distribution 2 sample t-test
- Not Normal Distribution 1 sample Wilcoxon median test

- Normal Distribution One way Anova
- Not Normal Distribution Kruskal-Wallis Test

- Normal Distribution Variation F-test
- Not Normal Distribution Variation Levene test

- Normally and Not Normal Distribution Variation Levene test

- Correlation calculates if there is a relation
- Regression calculates what the relations is between the data-sets

- multiple correlation coefficient calculates if there is a relation
- Multiple linear regression calculates what the relations is between the data-sets

- Beta know small sample size Weibayes
- Big samples size Weibull analysis (n>20)

- Non Destructive testing Crossed Gauge R&R
- Destructive testing Nested Gauge R&R (destructive)
