Descriptive statistics are very useful in summarizing any collected data so as to help in coming with precise and accurate conclusions. The recent research by the Cambridge university hospital on the innovative new treatment intended for patients in the later stages of prostate cancer sounded uncertain.

Nevertheless, there is some sense of precision though to a low magnitude, this is on comparison with existing statistics. On another perspective, the patients selected were only men; this phenomenon ought to have brought a more accurate outcome as seen in this study. In regard to the measures of central tendency, the research outcome is not promising as outlined below (Moore, 1991).
