Statistics 208 is a continuation of Statistics 207. It introduces the powerful ideas of classical and modern statistics. It covers the basic concepts and most commonly used techniques in statistics. The emphasis is on applications. The topics are: inference about one and two populations: parametric and nonparametric techniques, analysis of variance, simple linear regression and correlation, multiple linear regression, analysis of contingency tables, goodness-of-fit tests and special topics (if we have time).
