Stat 200: Statistical Analysis


Overview

Statistics provides the tools to sort through data to make objective decisions. Stat 200 provides an accelerated introduction to the basic tools for quantitively oriented students, with particular emphasis on understanding which tools are appropriate for which problems. We cover experimental design (including basics of causal inference from observations), basic probability (both frequentist and Bayes), descriptive statistics, inference from samples (including null hypothesis significance tests), analysis of variance, multiple regression, logistic regression, and non-parametric methods. We include both an easy-to-use data analysis program and exercises in the R programming language.
