Statistical methods play a key role in all tasks concerning data collection, analysis, interpretation, and visualization. The use of statistics is ubiquitous throughout an environmental project life cycle and supports both the objective of advancing scientific understanding and the management goal of making decisions. Statistics provide the tools needed to understand the behavior and patterns of contaminants over time and space. This fact sheet provides a condensed selection and discussion of important statistical methods used for the analysis of groundwater and soil data with the aim of promoting the proper use, application, and interpretation of statistics at environmental restoration sites.
