Applied Statistics (STAT7001)

Statistics 3008/7001 (Applied Statistics) is a course designed for senior undergraduate and research students who need to design experiments and carry out statistical analysis of their data. Emphasis will be placed on the development of statistical concepts and statistical computing, rather than mathematical details. The content covered will be motivated by problem-solving in many diverse areas of application. The topics covered will include regression modelling with emphasis on model formulation, understanding the implication of model assumptions, diagnostic methods for model checking and interpretation, logistic regression for binary variables and binomial counts, log-linear regression for Poisson counts, and exploratory tools for summarising multivariate responses.
