English level:


All teaching activities will be held in Croatian. However, foreign students in mixed groups will have the opportunity to attend additional office hours with the lecturer and teaching assistants in English to help master the course materials. Additionally, the lecturer will refer foreign students to the corresponding literature in English, as well as give them the possibility of taking the associated exams in English.

1. Introduction. Examples of statistical problems. Statistical data. Classification of statistical variables. Frequency distributions of discrete variables. Tables and graphs. Continuous variables. Grouping data. Histogram. Point diagram. Line diagram. Stem and leaf diagram.
2. Measures of central tendencies. Mean (arithmetic, geometric, harmonic). Median. Mod. Measures of location (quartiles, deciles, percentiles, quantiles). Measures of variability. Range. Interquartile range. Standard deviation. Box and whisker diagram. Geometric interpretations of arithmetic mean and median. Chebyshev's inequality and its interpretation. Moments. Standardization of data. Measures of shape (skewness and kurtosis).
3. Frequency distributions of two-dimensional vectors (contingency tables). Marginal and conditional frequency distributions. Regression function. Statistical dependencies/independencies. Measures of statistical dependence in contingency tables. Covariance and correlation coefficient. Correlation coefficient as measure of linear dependence.

5. Population and sample. Population parameters and statistics. Simple random sample (with and without repetition, finite and infinite populations). Sample distribution. Example: estimation of proportion parameter of finite population based on simple random sampling with and without repetition, and of infinite population. Definition of random sample.

11. Testing hypotheses about normal model parameters (t-test, Chi-square-test). Comparison of two normal populations (t-test, F-test). Large sample tests. Comparison of proportions.
12. One-way analysis of variance. The model. Parameter estimation. ANOVA table. F-test. Bivariate normal model. Testing correlations.
