The purpose of STA3AS is to equip graduates with an in depth understanding of modern statistical methods in the following three key topics: 1. Sample surveys with an emphasis on simple random sampling and stratified random sampling. 2. Multivariate analysis with an emphasis on inference for the multivariate mean, checking for underlying multivariate normality, principal component analysis and discriminant analysis. This topic includes an introduction/review of common linear algebra results. 3. Time series analysis with an introduction into the theoretical foundation of Box-Jenkins univariate time series models which form a basis for empirical work with time series data. The software package used in this subject is R.
