The ability to access, utilise, understand, and communicate stories contained within data is a core competency for all economics graduates in our information-rich society. Statistical methods help not only to formulate appropriate economic policies but also to evaluate their effects. This unit introduces and develops the basic quantitative techniques used to analyse data, including how to visualise and describe data from many different sources; how to model and analyse the relationships within data; and how to make correct inferences from data and detect incorrect inferences. Students will learn how to use computer software for data description and statistical analysis using real-world data.
