A Univariate Data Analysis Task is a data analysis task that accepts a univariate dataset.

**Context:**- It can range from being a Univariate Categorical Data Analysis Task to being a Univariate Numerical Data Analysis Task.
- It can range from being an Unordered Univariate Analysis Task to being an Ordered Univariate Analysis Task (such as a univariate timeseries analysis).
- It can be solved by a Univariate Data Analysis System (that implements a univariate data analysis algorithm).

**Example(s):***Analyze the gender of the organization's members.**Analyze the ages of the organization's members.**Analyze the expenses amounts of the organization's members.**Analyze the set of 9338 timestamps.*- Univariate Outlier Detection, such as Univariate Continuous Outlier Detection.
- Univariate Central Tendency Summarization.
- Univariate Temporal Data Modeling.
- …

**Counter-Example(s):****See:**Database Column, Synthetic Univariate Data.

- QUOTE: Univariate analysis explores each variable in a data set, separately. It looks at the range of values, as well as the central tendency of the values. It describes the pattern of response to the variable. It describes each variable on its own.
Descriptive statistics describe and summarize data. Univariate descriptive statistics describe individual variables.
