# Inferential Statistics

University of Amsterdam

Inferential Statistics is a comprehensive course offered by the University of Amsterdam, delving into the principles of significance testing, p-values, confidence intervals, and various statistical tests. This course equips learners with the skills to interpret data, make inferences, and perform statistical tests using freely available software.

• Understand the basic principles of significance testing and the sampling distribution
• Learn about p-value, significance level, power, and type I and type II errors
• Explore statistical tests for different data types and research designs
• Acquire the ability to perform tests using freely available software

Whether you are new to statistical testing or seeking to enhance your knowledge, this course covers a wide range of topics such as comparing two groups, categorical association, simple and multiple regression, analysis of variance, and non-parametric tests. With a combination of theoretical knowledge and practical implementation using R programming, this course provides a solid foundation in inferential statistics.

#### Before we get started...

Before getting started, this module acquaints you with the course format, requirements, and the team behind the course. You will also gain insights into the honor code and be provided with useful literature and documents to support your learning journey.

#### Comparing two groups

The module on comparing two groups delves into null hypothesis testing, p-values, confidence intervals, power, and various tests for independent and dependent groups. Moreover, it offers R labs for practical implementation.

#### Categorical association

Explore the concept of categorical association and independence, Chi-squared test, Fisher's exact test, and alternative tests. The module includes R labs for practical application of the concepts.

#### Simple regression

This module introduces simple regression, covering the regression line, equation, model, predictive power, and pitfalls. Practical implementation using R programming is included in the form of R labs.

#### Multiple regression

Delve into multiple regression, focusing on the regression model, R and R-squared, overall and individual tests, categorical predictors, and interpreting results. R labs are included for practical application.

#### Analysis of variance

The module on analysis of variance covers one-way ANOVA, factorial ANOVA, assumptions, F-test, post-hoc tests, and its relationship with regression. R labs are available for practical implementation.

#### Non-parametric tests

Learn about non-parametric tests, including the sign test, Wilcoxon test, Kruskal-Wallis test, Spearman correlation, and the runs test. The module provides a solid understanding of non-parametric testing methods and includes R labs for practical application.
