This course introduces inferential statistics (i.e. tests and confidence intervals). Concepts from inductive statistics are discussed on the basis of conclusions concerning an average with a known population standard deviation (i.e., z test). Additionally, several popularly used statistical techniques are treated: ttests (both independent and dependent), binomial tests (both for a single proportion and two proportions), and chisquared tests of independence. Also several popularly used (more advanced) statistical techniques are addressed: simple linear regression, multiple linear regression, oneway and twoway analysis of variance (oneway ANOVA and twoway ANOVA), and nonparametric tests. During the inclass computer exercises, students are taught analysing small and greater data files using the IBM SPSS statistical programme.
