This short course is designed to provide information needed to apply basic statistical tests to problems typically faced in pharmaceutical analysis. Emphasis will be placed on the most commonly utilized statistical tests, including: 1) t-tests; 2) analysis of variance; 3) correlation; 4) linear regression and 5) outlier tests. The courses focuses on the efficient utilization of statistics; not abstract theory. Practical examples drawn from scientific research will be used to illustrate statistical concepts. Emphasis will be placed on the appropriate use of statistics and the interpretation of their results.
This short course is associated with the August Land O Lake Pharmaceutical Analysis Conference.
