22 Crowdfunding Sites (and How To Choose Yours!)

22 Crowdfunding Sites (and How To Choose Yours!) | Innovation - Statistical Design | Scoop.it

It's not just Kickstarter anymore. Here's a road map.

 

Crowdfunding used to be pretty simple. Artists, inventors, and filmmakers posted their ideas, and funders chipped in a few bucks to make something happen. Kickstarter, the site that triggered the crowdfunding movement, was the cornerstone. In three years, the site has helped launch more than 95,000 projects.

 

Today, there are scores of crowdfunding sites. Indiegogo, Bolstr, Fundable--the list goes on. With the SEC poised to allow projects to offer equity, crowdfunding has the potential to revolutionize how entrepreneurs raise money. (For now, you have to offer some kind of reward in exchange for donations.)

 

But all sites are not created equal. Some specialize in nonprofits, or in certain types of products; others offer consulting services in addition to sourcing funding. In an increasingly crowded and complicated marketplace, where should you turn to fund your endeavor? Follow our map.

What is statistics? – Frequency | estatistics

What is statistics? – Frequency | estatistics | Innovation - Statistical Design | Scoop.it

Frequency
In Statistics, Frequency can be defined as any number that indicates the times that “something” such as a value, word, or category exists in a set. It is denoted as (Frequency). There is the Simple Frequency, the Relative Frequency, and the Cumulative Frequency, as well its combinations e.g. Cumulative Relative Frequency.

Variance_Standard_Deviation_infographic.png (640x400 pixels)

Variance_Standard_Deviation_infographic.png (640x400 pixels) | Innovation - Statistical Design | Scoop.it

The below infographic presents in a fun way the information that the Table shows. It is a good person which has four (4) hands and one (10) leg. It has also two (2) antennas. It is repeared six (6) times, one for each Table Example:

i) Its four hands are symbols for the same numbers in the relative dataset.
ii) Its Leg is a symbol for the number that is not the same with the rest ones.
iii) Its T-shirt is a symbol for the Mean value.
iv) Each Antenna is a symbol for Variance and Standard Deviation.
v) As the difference of a number from the Mean value increases, the Mean is getting “Meaner” over this number and expands against this number.

iv) In the 4th and 5th dataset, we can see that both datasets include four identical values while the 5th value is a different number. Note that the distance (difference) of Mean in relation to the four identical values is “4 points” while the distance of Mean in relation to the other number is “16 points”, in both cases. Note that the Mean value is 46 in the 4th dataset while it is 34 in the 5th dataset. The distance between the numbers and their Mean is the same in both cases (in absolute values).Therefore, the values of Variance and Standard Deviation remained EXACTLY the same, in both cases.

v) Finally, we can see that in the 6th dataset, the value of Variance increased incredibly in relation to the value of Standard Deviation which did not skyrocket.

Statistics eXplained: A statistical example for Mode value / Modal value

Statistics eXplained:  A statistical example for Mode value / Modal value | Innovation - Statistical Design | Scoop.it

Let’s say that you have a dataset with 10 values that correspond to ages. The value that appears more often is 23 which appears four (4) times (see graph). If we had a different dataset full of ONES (see graph), then, the Mode value will be the “1” which appears 6 times. Now, another dataset includes some random numbers that each appears only once! Here, no Modal / Mode value exist because all the values have the same frequency (f=1). That is, all these values can be reported as Mode / Modal values or none of them! Finally, if this type of dataset were given to us: 2,2,3,3,8,10, then, we can suggest that there are two Mode values / Modal values and these values are: 2 and 3 which both appear 2 times, or otherwise, its frequency are the highest ones between the frequency of other numbers/values.

Statistics eXplained: Population vs Sample... What is the Difference ? | Innovation - Statistical Design | Scoop.it

Population: When we use the word “Population”, we refer e.g. to all the people that exist in a city or e.g. to the total number of birds that exist in a region.

 

Sample: Sample is a part of the whole population e.g 100 people from a city which “occupies” 10000 people

Echt Virtuell: Frühlingstipp: Moonlight Teahouse | Innovation - Statistical Design | Scoop.it

Dieser kleine Bericht ist kein direkter Simtipp, denn es handelt sich nur um eine Parzelle. Und die Region, auf der sich diese Parzelle befindet, ist alles andere als einen Tipp wert. Das Moonlight Teahouse ist aber so geschickt in Prim- und Texturwände eingebettet, dass man im Inneren nichts von der Außenwelt mitbekommt. Auch ich verstecke das Foto mit einem Blick auf die Nachbarparzellen lieber hinter diesem Link.

It is amazing how many things you can Learn about what is A (Statistical) Range!!!

Elias "Estatistics" Tsolis's insight:

Statistical Range can be defined as any two values that can imply that intermediate numbers can exist between these two values.

z value - standard score example

z value - standard score example | Innovation - Statistical Design | Scoop.it

The Z score or z value or Standard score or normal score shows how many Standard Deviations below or above the Population mean a Raw score is. The Population Standard Deviation must also be known for this transformation. The underlying population must follow a Normal Distribution. When Raw Scores that are coming from different samples BUT from the same underlying population are transformed into Z scores, can be compared in a standardized way. That is, these scores are transformed to something that includes the same statistical properties. These are the following ones:

The z score distribution has a mean that equals to zero (0) and a standard deviation that equals to one (1). The z score mean and z score SD are NOT the population Mean or SD. However, when a Raw score is transformed to Z score, automatically, its Population Mean is transform to equal Zero (0) and its SD to equals one (1).

 

Example!

Your test performance in Literature is 15 while your classmate has a test performance in Literature 16. The mean of the class in this test is 17. You have a Ζ value or Z score of -1  and your classmate -0.5. Therefore, your test performance in literature is 1 point below the mean of the class in this test while the performance of your classmate in Literature test is half point below the mean (0.5). Your z scores differ only by half point (.5)!

Statistics eXplained: Example for Arithmetic Mean

Statistics eXplained:  Example for Arithmetic Mean | Innovation - Statistical Design | Scoop.it

You have measured how many kilometers you have run per day for five (5) days and you would like to calculate / find the mean / average of the running distance for these 5 days. Each line represents a Day.  On the Numerator (above the line) you must place each running distance and in the denumerator you must place the size of your set, in this example, "5" . By applying these numbers into the appropriate positions in the mean formula, we receive the following result: "5"

Yes, it's true! 


Did you know that 78% of Chief Marketing Officers believe content is the future of marketing? That means stories are the future of marketing.


There are other terrific insights this article has to share. If you are a biz story practitioner, this article is good news. If you are a creative working in any capacity in a company, this article also contains lots of good news for you.


Enjoy the shot in the arm this will give you. And for those who lack story skills, get busy!


And many thanks to fellow curator Daniel Watson who found and recommended this article to me :)

How Typography Affects ConversionsConversions | Quick Sprout

How Typography Affects ConversionsConversions  | Quick Sprout | Innovation - Statistical Design | Scoop.it

When you think about conversion optimization, what comes to mind? Testing colors, call-to-action buttons, headlines, and other elements including text, right?

 

Although those elements do affect conversions, what about other design aspects such as typography?

 

I know what you are thinking. How the heck does typography affect conversions? Well, certain font types will affect people’s decisions in different ways. For example, if you are trying to get your users to agree with a passage, they are more likely to do so if you use the font type Baskerville....
