Statistics for Business Economics

CEC via Swayam


The present course has been specially designed for the students studying in the subject of Business Economy at CBCS undergraduate level. The course will cover the essential aspects of statistics useful in Business economics viz: correlation and regression, probability and distributions, sampling and testing of hypothesis, and index numbers. The course will mainly emphasize the different statistical methods. By studying this course students will taught how the problem of business economics can be handled using the methods of statistics. Many economic problems required use of statistical distributions and testing of hypothesis of the parameters involved to solve them. The course will emphasize especially the modern techniques along with their significance in the area of business economics.
Objective of Course
The structure of the present course on statistics for business economics has been designed with the perspective of achieving following major objectives: • To provide a glimpse of descriptive measures to the students. • To impart knowledge regarding the development of linear relationship between the two correlated variables to the students. • To develop detailed understanding of discrete and continuous distributions. • To adequate the students with concepts of sampling theory and how to draw sample from the given population to estimate the parameters of the population. • To give adequate information to the students regarding the testing of hypothesis such that how various types of tests can be utilized under different situations? • To make the students aware about the various types of index numbers and their constructions.
