This course focuses on the theory underlying statistical techniques employed in almost every phase of life: Surveys are designed to collect early returns on election day and forecast the outcome of an election. Consumers are sampled to provide information for predicting product preferences. Research physicians conduct experiments to determine the effect of various drugs and controlled environmental conditions on humans in order to infer the appropriate treatment for various illnesses. Engineers sample a product quality characteristic and various controllable process variables to identify key variables related to product quality. Newly manufactured electronic devices are sampled before shipping to decide whether to ship or hold individual lots. Economists observe various indices of economic health over a period of time and use the information to forecast the condition of the economy in the future. (For course objectives, see below.)
