Statistical inference

Khan, Shahjahan (2010) Statistical inference. In: Scientific data mining and knowledge discovery: principles and foundations. Springer-Verlag, Berlin / Heidelberg, Germany, pp. 53-76. ISBN 978-3-642-02787-1


This chapter discusses the foundations, philosophies, and methods of Statistical Inference in a broader perspective from the scientific viewpoint. It reviews the classical and Bayesian approaches and highlights the issues of sample and non-sample information in the context of decision making. In addition to the inferences on parametric set up, it also covers predictive inference for future unobserved responses. The popular linear models are used for illustrations of the approaches and methods.
