About this Unit
This Level 2 unit completes an introduction to the basic principles and concepts of statistics. There are two strands to the subject: distribution theory and statistical inference. The aim of the unit is to present a solid foundation in statistical theory and to provide an understanding of the relevance and importance of the theory in solving practical problems in the real world. The theoretical basis of the dual arms of classical statistical inference (estimation and hypothesis testing) is discussed relating the probabilistic half of the course to the final objective - inference.
