This course provides an introduction to the process of collecting, manipulating, exploring, analyzing, and displaying data using the statistical software R. The collection of elementary statistical analysis techniques introduced will be driven by questions derived from the data. The data used in this course will generally follow a common theme. No prior knowledge of programming, data science, or statistics is required.
Introduction to the probability and statistical theory underlying the estimation of parameters and testing of statistical hypotheses, including those arising in the context of simple and multiple regression models. Students will use computers and statistical programs to analyze data. Examples and applications are drawn from economics, business, and other fields. Students will not receive credit for both STAT 2120 and ECON 3710. Prerequisite: MATH 1210 or equivalent; co-requisite: Concurrent enrollment in a discussion section of STAT 2120.
This course provides a calculus-based introduction to mathematical statistics with some applications.
