Course Enrolment Limitations
The course is offered to students of any study field.
Course objectives
The discipline contains exploratory and regression data analysis, nonparametric statistics, statistical tests employed with two samples and with three and more samples, goodness-of-fit tests and statistical tests employed with multivariate samples. Upon completing this course, students will master the basic techniques of statistical software data analysis and will understand fundamental principles of selected statistical methods.
  • Exploratory data analysis: box-plot, N-P plot, histogram, empirical distribution function, moments, multivariate data samples, graphical representation of dependence two or more variables, cluster analysis. Nonparametric statistics: rank and rank statistics. Rank tests for one sample. Statistical tests employed with two samples: t-test, F-test, Wilcoxon and sign tests, comparison samples from binomial distributions. Statistical tests employed with three and more samples: ONEWAY, F-test, Kruskal-Wallis test, test of homogenity for binomial samples. Goodness-of-fit tests: Kolmogorov-Smirnov test, chi-square test. Statistical tests employed with multivariate samples: Pearson's correlation coefficient, Spearman's correlation coefficient. Regression analysis: classical linear regression model, least squares method, tests for regression parameters.
