STAT10060 Statistical Modelling

Academic Year 2021/2022

This course is an introduction to some of the basic statistical methods and tools used for analyzing data and make decisions. Core concepts will be presented using practical data examples, focusing on applications and critical evaluation. The module will introduce these methods also using the statistical software R.
Main topics covered:
- Introduction and basics of inference.
- Comparing two populations: Confidence intervals and hypothesis testing for the difference between population means and population proportions - Independent and paired samples - Sample size calculations.
- Analysis of categorical data: One and two-way frequency tables - Hypothesis testing - Test for association.
- Simple linear regression: Correlation - Regression line - Checking model adequacy - Using the model for inference and prediction.
- Analysis of variance: One-way ANOVA - Multiple comparisons - Randomized block experiments - Two-way ANOVA.
