The course examines the collection, classification, processing, presentation, analysis and interpretation of various data with the ultimate purpose of extracting sound conclusions for making informed decisions.
The lesson is laboratory in an equipped laboratory area that ensures student access to computers and special SPSS software. Thus, students acquire a comprehensive and realistic understanding of statistical applications in the daily practice.
The objectives of the course are: familiarization with the description of statistical data with frequencies, cumulative frequencies, statistical tables, graphs, as well as the development of skills related to the use of linear regression and correlation in the prognosis, also the operation of statistical packets for the use standard allocation, case control and the use of statistical tests and the development of skills with the ultimate aim of producing safe conclusions for making decisions.
