Course objectives
Statistical evaluation of results is an essential part of many anthropological researches. In the exercises the principles of basic statistical methods will be explained using examples from common practice. Students will be able to recognize situations where individual statistical methods can be used in practice, and to choose the most appropriate method under specific circumstances. They will exercise their computational skills necessary for statistical testing of hypotheses and simplifying the data file. Students will also learn to perform these basic statistical tests in Statistica 10 software.
