Applied Statistics for Data Analysis

  • PHA 6935 Applied Statistics for Data Analysis

    Credits: 3


    Applied Statistics for Data Analysis provides students with the basic knowledge of how scientific evidence is classified and how statistical procedures are utilized to analyze data. This encompasses common descriptive measures such as the mean, standard deviation, and uncertainty of measurements as well as comparative statistics that aim to compare two or more population means or perform simple linear regression. These basic statistical operations are important for everyday tasks conducted in an analytical laboratory. No matter which field the student will be working in, a basic understanding of the scientific method and the statistics used to analyze data is essential to job performance.
