Intended for decision makers, this course provides a broad overview of the major concepts of statistics. Includes experimental design, sampling methods, probability, confidence intervals, hypothesis tests, and multiple regression. The focus is on critical interpretation, with applications to policy analysis and program evaluation. Using case studies, the course asks what insight data can provide -- and what it cannot -- and compares the perspectives of statistics and ethics.
