Course Description for Statistical Methods I

STA6166: Statistical Methods I
Prerequisite:  MAS 3105 and STA 4321. This is the first in a two-term sequence in statistical methods. This course is a blend of the theory and applications of regression analysis and of the design and analysis of data. It focuses on linear regression with one predictor variable, inferences involving regression coefficients and correlation analysis, diagnostics and remedial measures, multiple linear regressions and its diagnostics, and an introduction to the analysis of variance. Emphasis is placed on the application of these techniques to data and interpretation of the results. The course uses the statistical analysis software (SAS) for data analysis.
