Explore the data

After collecting the data, the next step is to produce some numerical and graphical summaries of the sample data. The goal is to discuss the overall patterns in the data. Here we don’t want to just present a bunch of "yawned" and "didn't yawn" outcomes but a simple number and a picture or two that best represents what we learn from the data.

Suppose the researchers found 11 of the 34 subjects who had been given a yawn seed then yawned within the time period, compared to 3 of the 16 subjects who had not been given a yawn seed.
