Scanning my daily feeds from feedly I came across this post about a new Data Analysis and Statistical Inference course on Coursera that has just started this week. looks to be a good grounding on the subject.

The course is split into 7 modules

  • Unit 1 – Introduction to data
  • Unit 2 – Probability and distributions
  • Unit 3 – Foundations for inference
  • Unit 4 – Inference for numerical variables
  • Unit 5 – Inference for categorical variables
  • Unit 6 – Introduction to linear regression
  • Unit 7 – Multiple linear regression

The timetable of work over 10 weeks

Week 1: Introduction to Data, March 2 – 9
