STATISTICS 505



Statistics



Professors: Carter, Faulkner, Hilton (Chairman, 204 MSCB), Nielson, Richards.

Associate Professors: Beus, Rencher.

Assistant Professors: Christensen, Crandall, Hendrix.

Objective decision making in the face of uncertainty is the challenge facing
everyone in today's world. Utilizing such methods as the design and analysis of
experiments, survey sampling, regression analysis, operations research, and proba-
bility theory, the statistician is able to make decisions that are useful to the
social scientist, the biologist, the ecologist, the economist, and all people who
collect data. Typical decisions might be the predicted outcomes of the up-
coming election, the best combinations of treatments to increase yields (re-
sponses), a sampling scheme for incoming goods to locate bad lots, etc.

The curriculum in statistics is designed to ( 1 ) equip students with these
kinds of decision-making skills for careers as professional statisticians in in-
dustrial organizations, government agencies, universities, and research institutes,
and (2) to provide an integrated series of courses that will serve the entire
University by providing technical tools which can be applied in many subject
matter areas.

The bachelor's degree in statistics is offered in both the College of Physical
and Engineering Sciences and the College of Business. The Master of Science
degree in statistics is also offered, along with both an undergraduate and a
graduate minor.
