Learning outcomes

This course aims to introduce students to the fundamental principles and methods underlying the statistical analysis of data. Another goal of study is to acquaint students with classical likelihood inference plus modern topics and efficient statistical inference procedures used in practice.

In this course students learn how to draw the right conclusions and interpretations about a model that has generated your data set.


Roles of Modeling in Statistical Inference, Principles of Data Reduction,

Estimation: Risk, Loss of estimators, Cramer-Rao inequality, M-estimation/Generalized estimating equations

Large sample properties: asymptotic distributions, relative efficiency, consistency

Likelihood-Based Methods: likelihood construction and estimation, Fisher Information, likelihood-based tests and confidence regions
