This is an open online course, available freely to independent learners but with a fee for students. The course makes much use of online text, diagrams and interactive assignments. It is comprised of four units: Exploratory Data Analysis, Producing Data, Probability and Inference. These are subdivided into a total of twelve modules and more than two hundred "pages" of material.
Assessment Materials in Statistics for Economists
This is an open online course, available freely to independent learners but with a fee for students who want feedback from an instructor. The course makes much use of online text, diagrams and interactive assignments. It is comprised of four units: Exploratory Data Analysis, Producing Data, Probability and Inference. These are subdivided into a total of twelve modules and more than two hundred "pages" of material. It is similar to the companion course on Statistical Reasoning, but with a more classical treatment of probability.
This course webpage supports an introductory module on quantitative economics as taught by Fowad Murtaza and Domenico Tabasso at the University of Essex in 2009/10. It introduces students to the methods of quantitative economics, i.e. to how data are used in economics. Beginning from an elementary level (assuming no background in statistics), the course shows how economic data can be described and analysed. The elements of probability and random variables are introduced in the context of economic applications. The probability theory enables an introduction to elementary statistical inference: parameter estimation, confidence intervals and hypothesis tests. With these foundations, students are then introduced to the linear regression model that forms a starting point for econometrics. It includes a course outline / handbook, lecture presentations, lecture notes, coursework assignments, problem sets with solutions and statistical data.
An index of learning materials that are based on a specially selected data set from the 1991 UK Census. Each of the 14 modules has slides, detailed notes and statistical exercises involving the data sets.
The Introduction to Business Statistics Database (IBSD) contains more than eight hundred questions, about half multiple-choice, with answers at the foot of the page. They are selected from a huge database of questions and answers developed under National Science Foundation (NSF) funding in the mid 1970s.
This course page supports an MBA course at the University of Portland, as taught by Todd Easton in 2008. It covers Statistical and Quantitative Analysis and presents tools for descriptive statistics and details their effective use. The page features a range of course materials - syllabus, past exams, Java applets etc. but perhaps most importantly it includes a booklet on Excel skills, with accompanying data.
These SurfStat exercises with solutions, contain question sheets for introductory statistics and use simple linking to direct the reader to the answers.
HyperStat online is an introductory statistics textbook by David Lane of Rice University. It is arranged into 18 chapters, uses many interactive demonstrations and the textual content is broken into small chunks on successive pages. Each chapter ends with exercises, and offers selected answers. It also includes links to related material, recommended books and more information on how to use HyperStat in teaching.
