This is the web site for the course Statistics and Data Analysis (COR1-GB.1305), taught by Jeffrey Simonoff. The syllabus for the course can be viewed here (a more complete version of the syllabus can be found here). A class-by-class calendar for this course can be viewed here. The calendar will be updated after each class.
Portable document format (pdf) versions of the class handouts that comprise the chapters of the Course Supplement can be obtained here. Note that the files are not identical to those chapters. To read these files, you will need to have a pdf reader on your computer. You can obtain one for free by clicking here.
Here is a link to some interesting statistical Java applets that I use in class.
These are the data files for the course.
· Click here for links to data sources on the World Wide Web.
· Click here to go to the Minitab web site. This site includes information on free maintenance updates to the software and tutorials on using Minitab.
· Click here for a handout written and adapted by Professors Bill Greene and Ed Melnick on how to access Minitab via the Citrix site license server. Apparently there are problems running the Citrix plugin on Firefox or Chrome unless you update browser security settings. Click here for instructions for Firefox. You should also know that you must have your browser configured to allow pop-ups in order for the application to work; if it is not so configured Minitab will not open, and the software will not provide an error message.
· Click here for a link to an excellent paper on the application of statistical methods to real problems. The paper refers specifically to psychology problems, but the advice is applicable to any field. The full citation of the article is Wilkinson, L., & Task Force on Statistical Inference. (1999). "Statistical methods in psychology journals: Guidelines and explanations." American Psychologist, 54, 594-604. The paper is freely available at NYU or using an NYU proxy from a non-NYU machine, as the university has a subscription to the journal.
