About

There are many modes of performing inference including statistical modeling, data oriented strategies and explicit use of designs and randomization in analyses. 

Furthermore, there are broad theories (frequentists, Bayesian, likelihood, design based, …) and numerous complexities (missing data, observed and unobserved confounding, biases) for performing inference. A practitioner can often be left in a debilitating maze of techniques, philosophies and nuance. 

This Statistical Inference offered by Coursera in partnership Johns Hopkins University presents the fundamentals of inference in a practical approach for getting things done. After taking this course, students will understand the broad directions of statistical inference and use this information for making informed choices in analyzing data.
