General Description: This course emphasizes the practice of statistics. Standard statistical problems will be integrated with examples (some, but not all from economics) in order to illustrate how statistical techniques and reasoning are used. The material is somewhat technical, but not particularly mathematical. Students often find this course difficult and should be able to devote a significant amount of time to this class in order to succeed. Practice solving problems is essential to understand the material. Two primary goals of this course are to: i) prepare students to perform simple analyses of data and to evaluate the analyses of others, and ii) prepare students to take Econometrics. Required Text:
