Course Information from University Catalog

Not Repeatable


Application of basic statistical techniques. Focus is on the problem (data analysis) rather than on the theory. Topics include descriptive statistics; exploratory data analysis; sampling distributions; one- and two-sample tests and confidence intervals for means, medians, proportions, and variances; and goodness-of-fit tests. Normal theory is introduced first with discussion of what happens when assumptions break down. Alternative robust and nonparametric techniques are presented.
