Descriptive methods; probability and inference; regression and correlation. This course is designed to give you the ability to analyze data in a useful way. It should also provide you with the capacity to understand how you and others use (and abuse!) data and the information available from it. Topics include the description of both nominal and quantity data, probability distributions, statistical inference (estimation and hypothesis testing), and regression analysis. This course will provide you with the practical skills needed in business, science, the public sector, and other areas of society, where analysts and decision-makers need to draw conclusions from data, which will in turn better inform the decisions they must make. In essence, we will learn to analyze, collect, and organize data as well as how to use that data for practical decision making.
