In this course, we will explore basic principles behind using data for estimation and for assessing theories. We will analyze both categorical data and quantitative data, starting with one population techniques and expanding to handle comparisons of two populations. We will learn how to construct confidence intervals. We will also use sample data to assess whether or not a theory about the value of a parameter is consistent with the data. A major focus will be on interpreting inferential results appropriately.
At the end of each week, learners will apply what they’ve learned using Python within the course environment. During these lab-based sessions, learners will work through tutorials focusing on specific case studies to help solidify the week’s statistical concepts, which will include further deep dives into Python libraries including Statsmodels, Pandas, and Seaborn. This course utilizes the Jupyter Notebook environment within Coursera....

If you are interested in statistics and statistical analysis, this course gets you grounded in the essential aspects of statistics. Excellent instructors.

A very in-depth learning material for inferential statistics. Very good explanation of p-value which clarifies some of the prevailing misunderstandings.

The teaching team is great. But the assignments are not very helpful. And yes, this is more a statistics course than a python course. The application with python, which I am more interested in, seems just the supplementary portions to the lectures of concepts of statistics. There is not much introduction to how we use python to perform statistics, how we debug, and how we interpret the outcomes of programs.

Good theoretical foundation, but lacks explanation on python libraries extensively used in the course.

the fundamentals and intuition are greatly explained. The python part feels a little rushed though.

Overall solid course. Could do without peer review assignment, more of a hassle than anything.

I found Brady T West's videos in Week 4 to be unnecessarily confusing causing me to have to go back to Week 3 lectures to clarify the steps of hypothesis testing.

I'd like a little more interaction with Python during the explaination itself.

Python does not deserve to be in the title of this course.
