This course provides students with an introduction to statistics and its applications in business and economics. The course concerns itself with the application of statistics and the tools of statistical inference to the empirical measurement and testing of relationships postulated by economic theory. This will be accomplished through a comprehensive coverage of statistical concepts and strategies providing good preparation for the study of more advanced statistical material. The course will provide numerous applications of data analysis and statistical methodology offering considerable insights into the techniques by which data should be gathered as well as into the techniques through which a particular set of data should be analyzed once it has been gathered. Three credit hours. Prerequisites: MAT 114. Offered fall semester.


This course is a continuation of ECO 260. Statistical topics to be covered include design of experiments, analysis of variance, simple regression, multiple regression, model building, index numbers, forecasting, time series, chi-square and nonparametric statistics. The estimation and testing of linear economic models of two or more variables, statistical quality control, and decision analysis will be included. The course will rely on a specific computer-based application (SPSS, MINITAB, SAS, Excel, etc.) to create graphical and numerical outputs which will allow for in-depth interpretation of output, sensitivity analysis and examination of alternative modeling approaches. This course offers students an opportunity to learn practical approaches for analyzing data, ways of using data effectively to make informed decisions, and approaches for developing, analyzing and solving models of decision problems. Three credit hours. Prerequisites: ECO 260. Offered spring semester.
