PB 528 - Advanced Statistics

This course focuses on how to effectively use statistics to make effective decisions in research and practice. The objective is to help students learn how to use statistics to draw conclusions about applied problems. The approach will be to help students discover how to use statistics to frame the questions they ask and examine the answers they get. This is a ‘thinking’ course about understanding derived information to solve problems more than a ‘formula’ class about assessing data. Advanced multivariate methods will be explored as ways in which students can creatively explore organization conditions, examine interrelationships, and draw actionable conclusions. (3 credits)
