Course goals and objectives

Through hands-on experience with real data from a wide variety of applications, students will learn basic methods required for data analysis and interpretation. The emphasis will be on formulating questions, choosing appropriate statistical techniques for a given problem, verifying whether the assumptions behind the techniques are met by the dataset, drawing appropriate conclusions from the analysis, and communicating the results. Students will learn the basics of SAS, a statistical software package that is widely used in business, industry, government, and research.
