Fields of Study
Preparatory for studies or careers in
Public Policy, research, scientific inquiry

Inferential statistics is the basis for modern scientific research work. It is widely used for a broad range of scientific inquiry in both the natural as well as social sciences. While an understanding of the basics of statistics is valuable, more advanced work in statistical inference can prepare the student for using statistical methods in academic as well as professional work across a range of disciplines. This class is designed to take the student beyond descriptive statistics and provide a working knowledge in the use of probability distributions in testing hypotheses and conducting statistical tests of various types. Besides exploring several methods associated with the normal distribution, the class also provides an introduction to non-parametric tests as well as regression, methods that are increasing in popularity in research.
