Coverage includes data acquisition, data display, basics of probability, data distributions, confidence limits and hypothesis testing, statistical tests for categorical data, tests for related and unrelated data, analysis of variance, simple linear regression, multiple regression, and analysis with a dichotomous categorical dependent variable.
