Objectives of the Course
The theory of statistics deals in principle with the general concepts underlying all aspects of suchwork and from this perspective the formal theory of statistical inference is but a part of that full theory. Much of the theory is concerned with indicating the uncertainty involved in the conclusions of statistical analyses, and with assessing the relative merits of different methods of analysis, and it is important even at a very applied level to have some understanding of the strengths and limitations of such discussions.
