Statistics (STAT) - Courses

Courses

STAT 405/505 Cr.3

Statistical Methods

A survey of statistical methods from the point of view of how these methods are implemented with a standard statistics software package. Topics include descriptive statistics, graphical methods, tests of location, goodness of fit, simple and multiple regression, design of experiments, ANOVA, multiple comparisons, chi-square tests. Both parametric and nonparametric methods are treated. Computer use is an integral part of the course. Prerequisite: grade of "C" or better in STAT 145 or STAT 245. Offered Fall, Spring.

STAT 441/541 Cr.3

Mathematical Statistics I

Review of discrete and continuous random variables. Moment generating functions, multivariate probability distributions, marginal and conditional probability distributions, functions of random variables, order statistics, Central Limit Theorem, point estimation and confidence intervals. This slash course is taught largely at an undergraduate level. Graduate students will have additional course requirements/expectations. Prerequisite: grade of "C" or better in STAT 245 and MTH 310. Offered Fall.

STAT 442/542 Cr.3

Mathematical Statistics II

Methods of estimating, including method of moments and maximum likelihood. Sufficient statistics, hypothesis testing, power of tests, likelihood ratio tests and introduction to regression and analysis of variance. This slash course is taught largely at an undergraduate level. Graduate students will have additional course requirements/expectations. Offered Spring.

STAT 443/543 Cr.3

Categorical Data Analysis

An introduction to categorical data analysis covering summaries and inference for categorical response and count data, analysis of contingency tables, generalized linear models for binary and count data, logistic regression, multicategory logit models, and loglinear models for contingency tables with an emphasis on applications and implementation using computer software. Prerequisite: grade of "C" or better in STAT 245 or STAT 405/505. Offered Fall - Even Numbered Years.

STAT 445/545 Cr.3

Correlation and Regression Analysis

An introduction to simple linear regression, multiple regression, polynomial regression. Inferences, appropriateness of model, model diagnostics/adequacy, difficulties in the application of models are discussed. A computer package will be used. Course participants will be involved with hands-on statistical applications and consulting. Prerequisite: grade of "C" or better in STAT 245 or STAT 405/505. Offered Fall.

STAT 446/546 Cr.3

Analysis of Variance and Design of Experiments

An introduction to single factor, and randomized block designs in analysis of variance. Inferences, appropriateness of model, model diagnostics/adequacy, difficulties in the application of models are discussed. Design or structure of an experiment will be discussed. A computer package will be used. Course participants will be involved with hands-on statistical applications and consulting. Prerequisite: grade of "C" or better in STAT 245 or STAT 405/505. Offered Spring.

STAT 447/547 Cr.3

Nonparametric Statistics

An introductory course presenting the theory and procedures for using distribution-free methods in data analysis. Standard procedures, such as the Wilcoxon tests, Kruskal-Wallis, Kolmogorov-Smirnov, nonparametric confidence intervals, regression analysis, and powers of the tests will be included. Computer programs will be used when appropriate. Prerequisite: grade of "C" or better in STAT 245 or STAT 405/505. Offered Spring - Even Numbered Years.

STAT 449/549 Cr.3

Applied Multivariate Statistics

An introduction to applied multivariate statistical methods covering multivariate analysis of variance, multivariate analysis of covariance, repeated measures design, factor analysis, principle component analysis, cluster analysis, discriminate analysis, and multivariate regression. Course participants will be involved with hands-on statistical applications. Prerequisite: grade of "C" or better in STAT 245 or STAT 405/505. Offered Fall - Odd Numbered Years.

STAT 496/596 Cr.1-3
