STAT 9230 - Nonparametric and Robust Statistical Methods

Non-parametric statistical methods, including rank-based methods for testing location and dispersion for one-, two-, and more than two-sample designs, as well as non-parametric measures of association; robust estimation methods, with emphasis on robust analogs of the mean, standard deviation, and third-moment skewness. Students will be introduced to non-parametric resampling techniques (bootstrapping and permutation methods), which will be used with robust estimation to test hypotheses. Extensive use of computer-intensive estimation and hypothesis testing procedures.
