Design of Experiments and Surveys (STAT6029)

This course involves on-campus teaching. For students not on campus, there will be a remote option in Sem 1. See Class Summary or Wattle for details.

STAT6029 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, design and show a deep understanding of an appropriate method of data collection for a research project.
2. Explain in detail the basic principles in the design of simple experiments.
3. Demonstrate a high level of understanding of statistical survey sampling techniques.
4. Derive and apply suitable estimation procedures to analyse the results of a routine sample survey.

## Indicative Assessment

1. Typical assessment may include, but is not restricted to: exams, assignments, quizzes, presentations and other assessment as appropriate (100) [LO 1,2,3,4]

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 130 hours of work in completing this course. This includes time spent in scheduled classes and self-directed study time.
