Stat-TeX: A Service Course in Statistics

This was a joint project, initiated by myself and James, aimed at creating a single set of notes for 13 different service courses taught by the authors. Utilising my expertise in LaTeX and beginning from notes I’d already written in LaTeX for similar courses while teaching at Monash, James and I began to draft notes that could be used in our teaching with later content contributions from Anthony, Cliff and Adrien.

The notes cover, among other things:

  • Research Questions and Research Designs
  • Epidemiology
  • Statistical Inference (Hypothesis Testing)
    • Discrete Variables
    • Continuous Variables
    • Measures of Association
    • One-Way ANOVA
    • Two-Way ANOVA
    • Repeated-Measures ANOVA
    • Mixed-Models ANOVA
    • MANOVA
    • ANCOVA
    • Non-parametric procedures
  • Factor Analysis
  • Introduction to Bayesian Computation
  • Confidence Intervals and Credible Intervals around Effect Sizes
  • Statistical Power Analysis
