STAT 280: ELEMENTARY APPLIED STATISTICS

ECON 1008: Data Analytics

In today's world, good decision making relies on data and data analysis. This course helps students develop the understanding that they will need to make informed decisions using data, and to communicate the results effectively. The course is an introduction to the essential concepts, tools and methods of statistics for students in business, economics and similar disciplines, although it may have wider interest. The focus is on concepts, reasoning, interpretation and thinking rather than computation, formulae and theory. Much of the work will require students to write effectively and communicate their ideas with clarity. The course covers two main branches of statistics: descriptive statistics and inferential statistics. Descriptive statistics includes collecting data and summarising and interpreting them through numerical and graphical techniques. Inferential statistics includes selecting and applying the correct statistical technique in order to make estimates or test claims about a population based on a sample. Topics covered may include descriptive statistics, correlation and simple regression, probability, point and interval estimation, hypothesis testing, multiple regression, time series analysis and index numbers. By the end of this course, students should understand and know how to use statistics. Students will also develop some understanding of the limitations of statistical inference and of the ethics of data analysis and statistics. Students will work in small groups in this course; this will develop the skills required to work effectively and inclusively in groups, as in a real work environment. Typically, one component of the assessment requires students to work in teams and collect and analyse data in order to answer a real-world problem of their own choosing.

Course Description

STAT 280: ELEMENTARY APPLIED STATISTICS

East China Normal University

MAT 22: Intro to Statistics

The ability to predict the future is a rare gift. Future events are never certain. The study of Statistics is an important, practical methodology for predicting future outcomes. Statistics begins with data from past events. By incorporating the element of randomness in a data set, Statistics is able to harness the power of probability theory to assess future scenarios. The challenge of “decision making under uncertainty” becomes a reasonable possibility.

STAT 280: ELEMENTARY APPLIED STATISTICS

De Anza College

MATH 010: Introductory Statistics

Introduction to data analysis making use of graphical and numerical techniques to study patterns and departures from patterns. The student studies randomness with an emphasis on understanding variation, collects information in the face of uncertainty, checks distributional assumptions, tests hypotheses, uses probability as a tool for anticipating what the distribution of data may look like under a set of assumptions, and uses appropriate statistical models to draw conclusions from data. The course introduces the student to applications in engineering, business, economics, medicine, education, social sciences, psychology, the sciences, and those pertaining to issues of contemporary interest. The use of technology (computers or graphing calculators) will be required in certain applications. Where appropriate, the contributions to the development of statistics by men and women from diverse cultures will be introduced.

STAT 310: PROBABILITY & STATISTICS

London School of Economics & Political Science

ME117: Further Statistics for Economics and Econometrics

The course provides a precise and accurate treatment of probability, distribution theory and statistical inference. As such there will be a strong emphasis on mathematical statistics as important discrete and continuous probability distributions are covered (such as the Binomial, Poisson, Uniform, Exponential and Normal distributions). Properties of these distributions will be investigated including use of the moment generating function. Point estimation techniques are discussed including method of moments, maximum likelihood and least squares estimation. Statistical hypothesis testing and confidence interval construction follow, along with non-parametric and goodness-of-fit tests and contingency tables. A treatment of linear regression models, featuring the interpretation of computer-generated regression output and implications for prediction, rounds off the course. Collectively, these topics provide a solid training in statistical analysis. As such, this course would be of value to those intending to pursue further study in statistics, econometrics and/or empirical economics. Indeed, the quantitative skills developed by the course are readily applicable to all fields involving real data analysis.

STAT 310: PROBABILITY & STATISTICS

University College London

MATH0057: Probability and Statistics

The aim of the course is to introduce students to the theory of probability and some of the statistical methods based upon it. Many physical processes involve random components which can only be modelled using probabilistic methods. Statistical theory is vital for analyzing scientific data where it is necessary to distinguish genuine patterns from random fluctuations.

Syllabus

STAT 313: UNCERT & RISK IN URBAN INFRAST

University College London

STAT0011: DECISION AND RISK

This course aims to give an introduction to the statistical treatment of risk, the calculation of losses, and the theory of how to make optimal decisions based on such considerations. We begin with a review of statistical methods for estimating parameters of physical processes, and then show how these can be used to find the expected loss associated with different decisions, allowing choices to be made. Much of this course focuses on how to estimate the probability of extreme events occurring, for example high magnitude earthquakes, or large terrorist attacks. Additionally, we cover methods for detecting whether something important about a physical process has changed, so that risk computations can be updated in the light of new information. On successful completion of this course, a student should be able to understand measures of risk, find appropriate probability models for risky events, and check the validity of the underlying assumptions, understand Bayesian risk together with its theoretical assumptions, understand basic extreme value statistics, and understand basic time series modelling with structural change detection.

STAT 406: SAS STATISTICAL PROGRAMMING

STATS 301 Statistical Programming and Modeling using SAS

One of the key purposes of STATS 301 is to introduce you to the SAS software for the purposes of statistical inference, programming and modelling. SAS is a major commercial statistics package that is used at about 40,000 sites worldwide, and by four million users. We will use SAS as a programming language, and some more advanced features of SAS programming. STATS 301 is designed to be a practical course in the use of SAS in industry, such as, Market Research, Finance and Medicine. To date all the data you have seen has usually been given to you in a form ready for exploration and modelling. This is rarely the case in most day-to-day projects in industry. Here, the emphasis will be on getting data from a “raw and messy” form into a state ready for the data analysis techniques you have learnt, or will learn, at undergraduate level. Topics studied include: The general SAS programming environment, reading data into SAS, 'Slicing Dicing and Splicing data' and presenting the data in user friendly formats. Statistical Modeling techniques include linear modeling, multivariate ANOVA, tables of counts.
