STA 210: Introduction to Statistical Reasoning

The goal of this course is to help students develop or refine their statistical literacy skills. Both the informal activity of human inference arising from statistical constructs, as well as the more formal perspectives on statistical inference found in confidence intervals and hypothesis tests are studied. Throughout, the emphasis is on understanding what distinguishes good and bad inferential reasoning in the practical world around us.

Applied Statistics Lab Will Foster Collaborative Research, Provide Statistical Support kornbluh Thu, 01/12/2012 - 09:33 am

 

I’d like to point your attention to the newest installment of the Dean’s Channel where I spoke with statistics professors Arne Bathke and Arny Stromberg. In 2011, UK opened its first Applied Statistics Lab (ASL), with the help of the Office of the Vice President for Research, several UK college deans, and infrastructure grants such as the university's recent Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA), UK statisticians in the College of Arts & Sciences' Department of Statistics, and the College of Public Health's Department of Biostatistics.

The main objectives of this venture are to provide improved statistical services to groups preparing grant proposals, direct faculty involvement from the Departments of Statistics and Biostatistics for study design and data analysis throughout UK, foster collaborative research between scholars who develop quantitative methodology and those who use such methodology in their work, and to become a resource which may be referenced in institutional support for larger grants, in addition to direct statistical support typically included in such grants.

Dean's Channel: New Applied Stats Lab Sets the Course for Collaboration

Dean Mark Kornbluh sits down with statistics professors Arne Bathke and Arny Stromberg about the opening of the Applied Statistics Laboratory. This new resource will be available for use by multiple colleges and disciplines to meet statisitical analysis needs for all kinds of research.
