STAT3012 is a course that deals with two of the most important approaches to collecting research data - experiments and surveys.

The first part of the course will focus on experimental design and will cover topics such as the analysis of variance; the completely randomised design; the randomized complete block design; Latin squares; factorial designs; and if time permits nested designs.

Survey sampling topics will be covered in the second part of the course and may include: simple random sampling, with and without replacement; estimation of population total, mean, proportion and size; subpopulation inference; systematic sampling; stratified sampling; ratio estimation; regression estimation; unequal probability sampling, including the Hansen and Hurwitz estimator and the Horvitz-Thompson estimator; regression estimation; and if time permits, cluster sampling.

Learning Outcomes

Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:

  1. Select and design an appropriate method of data collection for a research project;
  2. Apply basic principles in the design of simple experiments;
  3. Apply statistical survey sampling techniques to design a routine sample survey; and
  4. Devise and apply suitable estimation procedures to analyse the results of a routine sample survey.
