Postgraduate medical students are often not able to select and interpret the findings of statistical tests during their thesis or research projects. To go ahead with selection of tests to be performed, researchers need to determine the objectives of study, types of variables, analysis and the study design, number of groups and data sets, and the types of distribution. In this review, we summarize and explain various statistical tests to help postgraduate medical students to select the most appropriate techniques for their thesis and dissertation.
