Introduction to Statistics and Programming

How do you analyse data using computers?

This course will introduce you to the formal statistical approaches used by economists in analysing the real world using computer programs. It will prepare you to develop the skills necessary to engage with more advanced electives in the undergraduate course which rely heavily on such approaches. In addition to learning basic probability and distributions, you will also learn some essentials on R Programming language. This sets you on a path to learn more advanced computational techniques for data analysis in future courses.
