Aims
After successful completion of this course, students will be able to:
- Use discrete, continuous and joint probability distributions and calculate important characteristics such as expectation, variance and covariance.
- Use datasets and sampling theory to estimate means, proportions, and variances of one or two data populations and compare them using appropriate interval estimates and hypothesis tests.
- Construct suitable simple and multiple linear regression models and use these models for both prediction purposes and for drawing statistical conclusions by means of suitable interval estimates and hypothesis tests.
- Recognize problems and questions in (economic) texts and translate them to equivalent statistical questions.
- Carry out the above mentioned statistical analyses using the computer software SPSS and Excel.
