This course provides the students with a firm grounding in the theory and methods of statistical inference and builds on the material covered in STA2301 Distribution Theory. Students will use a number of statistical procedures useful for both parametric and nonparametric inferences and learn different applications for both. Within this course students shall derive statistical procedures from first principles. Furthermore, both point and interval estimation as well as test of hypotheses under the classical framework are covered. The theoretical developments which are established in this course are supported by practical applications.
