Statistical Analysis & Decision Making


This two-evening Statistical Analysis & Decision Making offers the basic principles of probability and statistics to plan/predict outcomes and alternatives. Statistical analysis allows us to make inferences about and identify problems with populations from data, to select feasible approaches, and to assess their implementations. The entire arc of planning and predicting the course of a project involves statistics, including: sampling methods; collecting, summarizing, and modeling data; recognizing patterns, trends, and relationships; formulating and evaluating plans of action; and presenting results.
