Statistical Methods for Public, Nonprofit, and Health Management

CORE-GP.1011, 4 points.

Courses

This course introduces students to basic statistical methods and their application to management, policy,
and financial decision-making. The course covers the essential elements of descriptive statistics,
univariate and bivariate statistical inference, and introduces multivariate analysis. In addition to
covering statistical theory the course emphasizes applied statistics and data analysis, using the software package, SPSS.

The course has several "audiences" and goals. For all Wagner students, the course develops basic skills
and encourages a critical approach to reviewing statistical findings and using statistical reasoning in
decision making. For those planning to continue studying statistics (often those in policy and finance
concentrations) this course additionally provides the foundation for that further work.
