Statistical Engineering Division, ITL

Statistical concepts and methods are indispensable to research efficiency and planning as well as the characterization of uncertainty in measurements. Hence, the Statistical Engineering Division offers a program of short courses, primarily for the NIST community. The main objective of these courses is to develop an appreciation of the meaning and usefulness of basic statistical concepts and techniques, leading at least to the ability to interpret reliably statistical analyses performed by others. In addition, sufficiently motivated scientists or engineers will be able to learn to perform their own basic statistical analyses. Each course covers some aspect of statistics, with an emphasis on applications to science and engineering problems. Together, the following courses comprise a unified program in elementary applied statistics:
