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.
Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:
Upon successful completion of the requirements for this course, students will be able to:
· Working knowledge of the statistical computing package R.
· Fit simple and multiple linear regression models and interpret model parameters.
· Summarise and analyse relationships between a response variable and a covariate or covariates.
· Assess and refine simple and multiple linear regression models based on diagnostic measures.
· Carry out model selection in a multiple linear regression modelling context.
· The above outcomes for logistic and Poisson log-linear regression models.
· To understand basic multivariate analyses techniques and the bootstrap.

Typical assessment may include, but is not restricted to: assignments and a final exam.
In response to COVID-19, ANU has changed the mode of delivery for all classes in Semester 1 2020 to remote delivery.
Semester 1 Class Summary information (available under the Classes tab) on this publication is as up to date as possible. Changes to Class Summaries not captured by this publication will be available via Wattle and students should have been advised by the offering College.

The ANU uses Turnitin to enhance student citation and referencing techniques, and to assess assignment submissions as a component of the University's approach to managing Academic Integrity. While the use of Turnitin is not mandatory, the ANU highly recommends Turnitin is used by both teaching staff and students. For additional information regarding Turnitin please visit the ANU Online website.
Students are expected to commit at least 10 hours per week to completing the work in this course. This will include at least 3 contact hours per week and up to 7 hours of private study time.
