#### Description

This course covers the basic ideas of statistical inference, including sampling distributions, estimation, confidence intervals, hypothesis testing, regression, analysis of variance, nonparametric testing, and Bayesian inference. The sequence of STATS 425/426 serves as a prerequisite for more advanced Statistics courses. Regular homework and a final exam.

Topic covered include:

 Random Variables Joint Distributions Induced Distributions Expectation The Law of Large Numbers The Central Limit Theorem Simulation Populations and Samples The Chi-squared, t, and F Distributions Estimation: The Method of Moments Maximum Likelihood Estimation Bias, Variance, and MSE The Cramer Rao Inequality Exponential Families and Sufficiency Confidence Intervals Approximate Confidence Intervals The Bootstrap Asymptotics of the MLE Tests and Confidence Intervals Neyman Pearson Likelihood Ratio Tests Chi-Squared Tests Goodness of Fit Tests The Sample Distribution Function Decision Analysis Bayesian Inference The Two Sample Problem More on the Two Sample Problem Rank Tests One Way ANOVA Simultaneous Confidence Two Way ANOVA Categorical Data Simple Linear Regression Multiple Regression
