Demographic data is very important for descriptive data analysis. The data allows us to understand the typical data of respondents with insights into the shape and distrubution of the data.

It is always important to calculate the measures of central tendency and those of dispersion.

Demographic data can also be include in hypothesis tests as they are used for medoration and mediation.
