## Summary Statistics is the study of the collection, organization, analysis, interpretation and presentation of data. It deals with all aspects of data, including the planning of data collection in terms of the design of surveys and experiments. Descriptive statistics is the discipline of quantitatively describing the main features of a collection of data, or the quantitative description itself. Statistical inference (or inductive statistics) is the process of drawing conclusions from data that is subject to random variation, for example, observational errors or sampling variation. This training provides you with a substantial overview of both descriptive and inductive statistics. All topics are firstly explained in presentations with the fundamental mathematical theory and examples followed secondly by hands-on exercices.

## Agenda ##### Introduction to Statistics

Descriptive and Inductive Statistics - Uni-/Bi- and Multi-variate Statistics - Summary tables: Grouped data, Frequency distributions, Contingency tables - Statistical graphics: Bar chart, Biplot, Box plot, Histogram

##### Descriptive Statistics: Univariate Analysis

Location: Mean (Arithmetic, Geometric, Harmonic), Median, Mode - Dispersion: Range, Standard deviation, Coefficient of variation, Percentiles, Interquartile range - Shape: Variance, Skewness, Kurtosis, Moments

##### Descriptive Statistics: Bivariate Analysis

Dependence: Pearson product-moment correlation, Rank correlation (Spearman's rho, Kendall's tau), Partial correlation, Scatter plot - Linear regression: Simple linear regression, Ordinary least squares - Regression analysis: Errors and residuals, Regression model validation, Mixed effects models

##### Inductive Statistics: Probability Theory

Probability axioms - Probability space Sample space - Elementary event - Random variable - Probability measure - Complementary event - Joint probability - Marginal probability - Conditional probability - Independence - Conditional independence - Law of total probability - Law of large numbers - Bayes' theorem - Venn diagram - Tree diagram

##### Inductive Statistics: Probability Distributions

Introduction: Probability mass function, Probability density function, Probability distribution function - Discrete univariate distributions: Binomial, Poisson, Geometric, Hypergeometric - Continuous univariate distributions: Uniform, Exponential, Normal (Gaussian)

##### Inductive Statistics: Frequentist Inference

Unbiased estimators (Mean unbiased minimum variance, Median unbiased) - Confidence interval - Testing hypotheses - Alpha-/Beta-Error and Power

##### Inductive Statistics: Specific Tests

Z (normal) - Student's t-test - F - Goodness of fit (Chi-squared) - ­Signed-rank (1-sample, 2-sample, 1-way anova)

## Trainer Marco Skulschus (born in Germany in 1978) studied economics in Wuppertal (Germany) and Paris (France) and wrote his master´s thesis about semantic data modeling. He started working as a lecturer and consultant in 2002.
