1.4: Price ratios and price indices

This unit looks at a wide variety of ways of comparing prices and the construction of a price index. You will also look at the Retail Price Index (RPI) and the Consumer Price Index (CPI), indices used by the UK Government to calculate the percentage by which prices in general have risen over any given period. You wil also look at the important statistical and mathematical ideas that contribute to the construction of a price index.

Airline Safety and the Electoral College

Somehow **Arnold Barnett** manages to massage the subject of airline accidents into a breezy and sometimes comforting talk on statistical probabilities. In decades of research, he has taken firm hold of the metrics of measuring mortality in flight. While there are many ways of looking at the grim numbers, Barnett has de

It's the Effect Size, Stupid: What effect size is and why it is important

This BERA conference paper shows how effect size can be used to assess the effects of innovations in classrooms or schools. Effect size is a way to quantify the differences between two groups. It goes beyond statistical significance by looking at the size of the effect of an intervention, how big is the effect of the innovation. The paper shows how to calculate and interpret effect size, using a number of examples. It also warns that effect size is not about cause and effect but about difference

Bioinformatics and Computational Biology Solutions Using R and Bioconductor

Covers the basics of R software and the key capabilities of the Bioconductor project (a widely used open source and open development software project for the analysis and comprehension of data arising from high-throughput experimentation in genomics and molecular biology and rooted in the open source statistical computing environment R), including importation and preprocessing of high-throughput data from microarrays and other platforms. Also introduces statistical concepts and tools necessary t

Methods in Biostatistics II

Presents fundamental concepts in applied probability, exploratory data analysis, and statistical inference, focusing on probability and analysis of one and two samples. Topics include discrete and continuous probability models; expectation and variance; central limit theorem; inference, including hypothesis testing and confidence for means, proportions, and counts; maximum likelihood estimation; sample size determinations; elementary non-parametric methods; graphical displays; and data transform
