If I have data regarding advertising traffic (number of impressions displayed), revenue from these impressions, browser, country, device, etc., what kind of statistical test can I apply? I want to be able to say, for example, that traffic from country a is more valuable than traffic from country b, or traffic from mobile devices brings more revenue than traffic from desktop devices.

I also recommend Reasoning With Statistics, by Williams, as it covers the basic approach to statistical analysis in a concise format.
