# Descriptive Statistics

Descriptive statistics are statistical measures of a dataset that describe, characterize and summarize its properties, such as shape, variability, size and central location. Wolfram|Alpha's rigorous statistical algorithms enable you to compute and characterize the properties of your data with lightning-fast speed.
