of the main statistical concepts and their use in economic disciplines.
The aim of the course is to provide knowledge of analysis and management of data in order to enable students to develop the skills that enable them to structure, process,
statistically analyse data to solve some inferential problems that arise in the economic and management field.
1. Knowledge and understanding
1.1 know and use the main statistical tools necessary for the analysis of economic phenomena in their various manifestations
2. Ability to apply knowledge and understanding
2.1 know how to interpret the main relative economic phenomena to the functioning of markets and businesses through the application of statistical tools
2.2 provide a summary of data on economic phenomena
3. Making judgements
3.1 critically evaluate the different scenarios in the economic decision-making process and in the management of uncertainty
Good knowledge of set theory.
The list of prerequisites is available on the webpage http://www.unive.it/pag/203/
1. Introduction to statistical methodology.
2. Descriptive statistics in order to be able to interpret the main economic phenomena related to the functioning of markets and businesses through the application of statistical tools:
classification and data collection; in order to summarize the data related to economic phenomena: frequency distributions, statistical indices.
3. Probability theory and random variables as an introduction to statistical inference: basic concepts, conditional probability and stochastic independence, Bayes theorem, common probability distributions.
4. Statistical inference to critically evaluate the different scenarios in the economic decision-making context and in the management of uncertainty: point and interval estimation; hypothesis testing.
5. Study cases: interactions among variables, connection and regression.
The written test can be replaced by two intermediate tests. The first partial test will be held at the end of the first period of lessons (the access modalities will be communicated at the beginning of the course); the student who will receive a positive evaluation in the first test, will be able to access the second partial test which will be provided only during the exam dates scheduled for January / February (the student can access the second partial test only once).
During the written test the use of books, notes, electronic media is not allowed.
