ZAINO N
TR 9:40AM  10:55AM


This course focuses on the practical use of statistical methods beyond what is covered in STT 211, STT 212 and STT 213. The level of sophistication is high when it comes to the models and methods needed to analyze data and interpret results. Topics include randomization tests, bootstrapping, nonparametric tests, ANOVA models (fixed, random and mixed models, crossed and nested), multiple comparisons and linear contrasts, multiple linear regression, binary logistic regression and related topics. The course uses examples and case studies from both the natural and social sciences. The use of computer programs is emphasized for calculations and there is a strong emphasis on assumptions, models and interpretation of results.

This course offers an introduction to methods used for analyzing categorical data. The first portion of this course focuses on contingency table analyses. In particular, both twoway and threeway tables are introduced, along with inferential methods for determining significant associations between categorical responses. In the second portion of the course, emphasis is placed on regression models for categorical outcomes that are binary, polytomous, ordinal, or counts. Particular attention is given to logistic, probit, and loglinear models, along with associated inferential tests and model diagnostics. Examples and applications are taken from public health, epidemiology, and the behavioral and social sciences. R is introduced as the primary statistical software for performing data analyses.

HECKLER C
TR 9:40AM  10:55AM


The first half of this course covers the elements of programming in R, SAS, and operation of the JMP graphical user interface. The student will learn how to get data into (and out of) these programs, execute fundamental statistical procedures, and write programs in R and SAS to document and automate analyses. The second half explores the use of this software to understand data from observational studies. The student will learn the philosophy, capabilities, and pitfalls of exploratory data analysis. Univariate, bivariate and multivariate methods will be introduced. Graphical methods will be emphasized, but numericallyoriented procedures such as linear models will be included where appropriate. Each student will analyze a reallife data set in some depth and write a report. Registration priority will be given to Statistics majors who will be taking the course in their senior year.
