Statistical Inference

This module provides learners with an in-depth understanding of the statistical distribution and hypothesis testing in a practical approach to getting things done.

Statistical distributions include Binomial, Poisson, Normal, Log-Normal, Exponential, t, F, and Chi-Square. Parametric and non-parametric tests used in research problems are covered in this unit.

The module will help learners to formulate research hypotheses, select appropriate tests of hypotheses, write primarily R programs to perform hypothesis testing, and to draw inferences using the output generated. After taking this course, students will understand the broad directions of statistical inference and use this information for making informed choices in analysing data.
