Statistics for Economists 2

Module code: EC1009

During this module you will enhance your statistical analysis skills gained from Statistics for Economists I and start to write up the results you calculated from a data-analysis report. You will use techniques of statistical estimation, hypothesis and non-parametric testing, and ANOVA (analysis of variance).

In this module you won't just be focusing on learning more advanced statistical techniques from the previous module but will get to apply your knowledge and actually analyse and interpret data obtained from these methods. You will also start to use statistical software to manipulate, present and analyse actual data.
