The following topics will be covered: Multiple regression, with an emphasis on inference Analysis of variance (ANOVA) in both one-way and two-way layouts Contingency tables and the chi-squared test If time permits we will also look at: Nonparametric methods Since this course builds directly on material from STA2023 or similar course, concepts from that course will be briefly reviewed as needed. At the same time students are ex- pected to be already familiar with the following list of topics: graphical and numerical descriptive measures, simple linear regression, basic probability concepts, random vari- ables, sampling distributions, central limit theorem, confidence intervals and significance tests for parameters associated with a single population and for comparison of two popu- lations. All course material will be the extension of those concepts....
