On completion of the subject students should be able to:

1. Explain the basic concepts underlying estimation theory, hypothesis testing and regression;
2.Explain the underlying assumptions and the applicability of each of the approaches studied;
3.Determine appropriate methods for practical inference problems and apply such methods to data.
4.Use R to program statistical tests

Why do we need to use the R statistical package?
We can use R for complicated statistical analyses or multiple calculations on a large dataset. It has powerful plotting, graphing, and data visualisation functions that are of professional quality. There are many freely available packages and libraries so that the user doesn’t have to waste time recreating the same functions. It is a fully programmable language, and is capable of connecting to relational database systems. In short, it is a versatile tool for data analysis and data mining, and it is very suitable for data assurance and auditing purpose. This tutorial and complied manual will give you the ‘fishing-rod’, so you can learn R at your own pace without going ‘Arrg’ and pulling your hair out!
