Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

This is an introduction to applied statistics. The main goal of the course is for students to develop the necessary foundations and skills to implement quantitative empirical research independently. Students are required to make "hands-on" applications of the material studied in the course.

Assessment and permitted materials

Students will be marked according to 3 different homeworks (20% each) and a final project (40%). Failure to hand in any of these implies a negative evaluation of the course.

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

Students must obtain at least 50% of the overall mark in order to pass the course.

Examination topics

There are no exams in the course. The main topics of the course are (1) descriptive statistics, (2) probability, (3) random variables, (4) inference, (5) regression analysis.
