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
