This course will introduce students to the fundamental tools needed for
statistical data analysis that will be invaluable for doing empirical research
in various disciplines of social and agricultural sciences. The presentation
approach will stress intuitive knowledge of how to apply statistical concepts
and tools to real world problems and case studies. Although use of formulas and
mathematical computations are important components of statistics, less emphasis
will be placed on memorization and derivation of theorems and mathematical
proofs. Essentially, this is an applied statistics course. Location:
