  • Overview

    An introduction to methods and applications in applied statistical inference. This module is offered as an optional module, building on the statistical inferential methods demonstrated in pre-requisite module MA238/ST238 or MA228 or similar modules.
    Various non-parametric hypothesis tests are demonstrated and a comparison of suitability of applying non-parametric and parametric methods is discussed. The module also builds on regression modelling, where topics covered include model estimation, model checking and inference for simple linear regression and multiple linear regression models, and procedures in variable selection. Models discussed are applicable for a single quantitative response with quantitative and/or qualitative predictors.
