The ordinal measurement of data is based on the ranks of data. The Department of Statistics offers Master of Science (M. Some of the following material will be covered: data displays and summary statistics for quantitative and qualitative variables; correlation and simple regression for pairs of variables; probability to deal with partial and uncertain knowledge; the law of large numbers; the normal distribution and the central limit theorem; statistical inference based on standard errors, confidence intervals and statistical hypothesis tests.
Representative courses include: Completely randomized block designs, factorial and fractional factorial experiments, balanced incomplete block designs, response surface methods. We would expect this from the scatter plots (R2 =. posing a serious problem that cannot be cured by large sample size. but standardized .31) n (12. since the regression parameter estimates b0 and b1 and their variances remain unbiased and consistent. Spatial models for the distribution of extremes, Hierarchical modelling for the Environmental Sciences: statistical methods and applications, Edited by JS Clark and A Gelfand.
The course covers also techniques for creating and interpreting graphs using statistical software or specialized graphing calculators. Cohen J., Statistical Power Analysis for the Behavioral Sciences, L. The three-term core course sequence: Additional applied statistics courses: The objective is developing a breadth of knowledge in the application of statistical methods within the discipline and in related areas. We offer programs leading to BA, BS, MS, and PhD degrees. Or it can help assist you move up the hierarchy of your current career. ‘Big Data’ has opened up a huge range of career opportunities for those who are talented in working with figures.
Wurzer, Monitoring accuracy and precision - improvements by introducing robust and resistant statistics, Mikrochimica Acta II, 1-6, 31-42, 1986. The ordinary least squares (OLS) method yields regression coefﬁcients for the slope (b1) and intercept (b0) that minimize the sum of squared residuals. The statistical significance of a result is the probability that the observed relationship (e.g., between variables) or a difference (e.g., between means) in a sample occurred by pure chance ("luck of the draw"), and that in the population from which the sample was drawn, no such relationship or differences exist.

Electives can be chosen from other graduate level courses in mathematics.
R is available by free download and is supported on most systems. Students may receive credit for only one of the following: ST 310, ST 315 or ST 320. Sasieni and Patrick Royston General Interest Section: Dotplots. .. 219--234 E. Materials in this Web site are tailored to help you make better decisions and to get you thinking statistically. Topics include multiple parameter Bayesian analysis, informative and objective Bayesian methods, Bayesian and frequentist interface, Bayesian variable selection and model averaging, Bayesian hierarchical models and empirical models, Bayesian model checking, Bayesian applications to generalized linear models, and Bayesian decision theory.

Students wishing to pursue a Graduate Certificate in Applied Statistics, who have not been admitted to the Kansas State University Graduate School can apply for admission to the Graduate School as a non-degree student through the Kansas State University Global Campus website The student must meet the entrance requirements for graduate study, including English language proficiency requirements, if required.
APSTA-GE.2012: Advanced Topics in Quantitative Methods: Causal Inference: Statistical Methods for Program Evaluation and Policy Research The course provides students with a basic knowledge of both how to perform analyses and critique the use of some more advanced statistical methods useful in answering policy questions. GMAT: The minimum acceptable score is 650. Topics include: review of probability and statistics, estimation and testing of linear regression models, theory of individual choice behavior, derivation, estimation, and testing of discrete choice models (including logit, nested logit, GEV, probit, and mixture models), estimation under various sample designs and data collection methods (including revealed and stated preferences), sampling, aggregate forecasting methods, and iterative proportional fitting and related methods.
However, by taking small but representative sample of such women, one may determine the average height of all young women quite closely. The resident MAS program admits 11-14 students each year. A bachelor’s degree in statistics typically includes courses in linear algebra, calculus, experimental design, survey methodology, probability, and statistical theory. For an Area of Special Interest (ASI) in Computational and Applied Mathematics (CAM), the student should take the following: 15 credit hours of Mathematics courses (5 courses) from either the CAM or STATISTICS Courses listed above, including one course at the 400-level. (S) An introduction and/or review of topics which are essential to the background of an undergraduate student at CSM.

You'll have quite a free choice over what sort of project you do – it could be a more theoretical dissertation, a survey or a more practical project involving a data set, whatever suits your interests and skills.
