- Unit Value 6 units
STAT3012 is a course that deals with two of the most important approaches to collecting research data - surveys and experiments.
The first half 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 half of the course and may include: simple random sampling, with and without replacement; estimation of population total, mean and proportion; subpopulation inference; systematic sampling; stratified sampling; ratio estimation; unequal probability sampling, including the Hansen and Hurwitz estimator and the Horvitz-Thompson estimator; regression estimation; and estimation of population size.
Upon successful completion of the requirements for this course,
students will be able to:
1. Select and design an appropriate method of data collection for a
2. Apply statistical survey sampling techniques to design a routine
3. Devise and apply suitable estimation procedures to analyse the
results of a routine sample survey.
4. Apply basic principles in the design of simple experiments.
