Statistical Estimation

For statistical analysis to work properly, it’s essential to have a proper sample, drawn from a population of items of interest that have measured characteristics. This week, we will cover statistical estimation, sampling distribution of the mean, point estimation, interval estimation, hypothesis testing, the Null hypothesis and look at some real life examples of their use.
