EDPS 730 Introduction to Nonparametric Statistics

Focus on statistical methods appropriate for data in which standard assumptions such as normality and equality of variance are not met. Covers approaches for problems from one sample estimates of location to nonparametric multivariate techniques such as factor analysis. Students will learn about methods based on ranks, permutation tests, and the bootstrap. Prerequisite: EDPS 641 or 642.
