Statistics II (STAT*2050)

Code and section: STAT*2050*01

Term: Winter


In this course, students will learn how to implement good study design and analyze data from complex studies. This course follows naturally from STAT*2040 and features both previously unseen statistical techniques, as well as studying in greater depth some topics covered in STAT*2040. These topics will include: experiments and observational studies; a review of t-tests and confidence intervals; confounding variables; association and causality; Analysis of Variance (ANOVA); simple and multiple linear regression; binary responses (logistic regression); odds ratios and relative risk; and an introduction to experimental design (including blocked designs and factorial treatment designs). Assignments carried out using modern statistical software will form the basis for mastering the material.
