Course content
Introduction to statistics basic terms (frequency tables, pivot tables, graphs). Characteristics of quantitative variables (mean, variance, skewness, kurtosis). Statistics comparisons (Index analysis - simple and composite individual indices, the aggregate price and volume indices). Introduction to dependence investigation (coefficient of association, pivot coefficient and correlation coefficient). Introduction to regression analysis (linear regression model, index of determination, the regression line, parabolic regression etc.). Introduction to time series analysis (lemental characteristics of time series, classical decomposition of time series, modeling of trend and seasonal component). Probability theory (classical and statistical probabilty, conditional probability, independent events, probability theorem, Bayes' theorem, discrete and continuous random variables, characteristics of random variables, discrete distributions, continuous distributions). Central limit theorem, law of large numbers.

Learning activities and teaching methods
Monologic (reading, lecture, briefing), Dialogic (discussion, interview, brainstorming), Work with text (with textbook, with book)
Learning outcomes
The aim of the course is to teach students the principles of statistics and the basics of probability, so that they can be used both in most economic and administrative subjects, and practice in the evaluation of real situations. At the same time, students learn to work with statistical software Statictica.
Students will be able to apply statistical methods to solve practical problems in real situations.
Prerequisites
Successful completion of the course are in the range of knowledge of mathematics taught at universities.

Assessment methods and criteria
Home assignment evaluation, Student performance assessment, Systematic monitoring

Credit: successful passing of the tests (at least 60 %). Examination: written, consists of practical and theoretical tasks. Successful completion - at least 60 %.
