Introduction to Nonparametric Statistics

STAT 43301


STAT 41700 and STAT 42100 or equivalents


The course acquaints students with rank-based, permutation-based and resampling-based methods of statistical analysis used in widely applicable settings where the data do not follow parametric models. It extends techniques taught in STAT 51100, where the normal theory is assumed, to situations where the normal theory does not hold. It includes computer projects which use statistical software such as R and SAS.
