Introductory Statistics 

 

Statistics for Business and Economics

 

Below you find the presentations from an introductory statistics course covering the basics of descriptive as well as inferential statistics. The presentations include many examples and exercises. You may verify all calculations using a standard scientific calculator (capable of logarithms) or spreadsheet-based program such as Excel. You are welcome to use the presentations for studying or in the planning of your statistics course outline. Please refer to the contact page should you have further enquiries. Feel free to comment on your experiences and to suggest improvements. Please note that in Windows 7 files might only be downloaded in .zip format. Open the compressed file in Excel and save as workbook for further use. Note that files are available as Office 2003, Office 2007 and .pdf (docs only).
