FP-stat2PAcad. year: 2020/2021
The course deals with main ideas and methods of point and interval estimates, the most used parametric and nonparametric tests, good fit tests, an analysis of variance, a categorial analysis, linear and nonlinear multiple regression models and time series analysis.
Learning outcomes of the course unit
Students will be made familiar with the methods of mathematical statistics, regression analysis, and time series analysis and will learn how to use the respective methods when solving economics problems. After completion of this course students will be prepared to use these methods in economics courses.
Fundamentals of a probability theory and a random variable.

Planned learning activities and teaching methods
Teaching consists of lectures that have an explanation of basic principles and methodology of the discipline, practical problems and their sample solutions.
Exercise promote the practical knowledge of the subject presented in the lectures.
Assesment methods and criteria linked to learning outcomes
The course-unit credit is awarded on the following conditions (max. 40 points):
- submitting answers to calculating problems and theoretical questions.
The exam (max. 60 points)
- has a written form.
In the first part of the exam student solves 4 examples within 80 minutes. In the second part of the exam student works out answers to 3 theoretical questions within 15 minutes.
The mark, which corresponds to the total sum of points achieved (max 100 points), consists of:
- points achieved in control tests, points achieved to calculating questions and theoretical questions,
- points achieved by solving examples,
- points achieved by answering theoretical questions.
The grades and corresponding points:
A (100-90), B (89-80), C (79-70), D (69-60), E (59-50), F (49-0).
Language of instruction
Students will obtain basic knowledge and skills of point and interval estimates, the most used parametric and nonparametric tests, good fit tests, an analysis of variance, a categorial analysis, linear and nonlinear multiple regression models and time series analysis.
Topics lectures are as follows:
1. Basic concepts of statistical testing.
2. Parametric statistical tests – t-test.
3. Parametric statistical tests – two sample t-test and F-test.
4. Kolmogorov-Smirnov test, Pearson test and Shapiro-Wilk test.
5. Analysis of variance (ANOVA).
6. Nonparametric statistical tests – Sign test, Wilcoxon rank sum test.
7. Nonparametric statistical tests - Kruskal-Wallis test, Median test, Spearman's correlation coefficient.
8. Categorical analysis – contingency table and Chi square test.
9. Univariate regression model.
10. Multivariate regression models.
11. The release of the classical assumptions – heteroscedasticity, multicollinearity and autocorrelation of random components.
12. Nonlinear regression models.
13. Panel data analysis.
The objective of this course is to familiar students with ideas and methods of point and interval estimates, the most used parametric and nonparametric tests, good fit tests, an analysis of variance, a categorial analysis, linear and nonlinear multiple regression models and time series analysis.
