Abstract: Classical point estimates of parameters of location, scale, and distribution shape are measures characterizing the sample distribution. More meaningful are interval estimates which for a specified degree of assurance cover an unknown value of the population parameter. Routine data treatment comprises the exploratory data analysis, the test of basic assumptions about a sample, and a calculation of the classical and robust estimates of the parameters of location, scale, and shape. For an analysis of small samples the Horn procedure of pivot measures is more suitable. Procedure of the univariate data treatment is demonstrated on the calibration of a pipette.
