Inferential Statistical Analysis with Python

 


What you'll learn

Determine assumptions needed to calculate confidence intervals for their respective population parameters.

Create confidence intervals in Python and interpret the results.

Review how inferential procedures are applied and interpreted step by step when analyzing real data.

Run hypothesis tests in Python and interpret the results.

There are 4 modules in this course

In this course, we will explore basic principles behind using data for estimation and for assessing theories. We will analyze both categorical data and quantitative data, starting with one population techniques and expanding to handle comparisons of two populations. We will learn how to construct confidence intervals. We will also use sample data to assess whether or not a theory about the value of a parameter is consistent with the data. A major focus will be on interpreting inferential results appropriately.  

At the end of each week, learners will apply what they’ve learned using Python within the course environment. During these lab-based sessions, learners will work through tutorials focusing on specific case studies to help solidify the week’s statistical concepts, which will include further deep dives into Python libraries including Statsmodels, Pandas, and Seaborn. This course utilizes the Jupyter Notebook environment within Coursera.
