Inferential statistics are concerned with making inferences based on relations found in the sample, to relations in the population. Inferential statistics help us decide, for example, whether the differences between groups that we see in our data are strong enough to provide support for our hypothesis that group differences exist in general, in the entire population.

TOP REVIEWS FROM INFERENTIAL STATISTICS
A very fast course! Really gave me a hard time. Very good content and good organization. A lot of calculations on the final.
I enjoyed this course. Being new to stats, I feel I needed more practice and extra examples. A lot of extra work and self-study helped me grasp and pass this course.
Incredibly dense (which they warn you about) so the lecutres fly over so much important info it's hard to keep track of even with a strong focus. A very good overview though.
Wish there was a way to accept alternative methods on R assignments - got the answer but would not accept string of code
