Websites such as fivethirtyeight.com have highlighted the power of statistical modeling at the national level. As sixfiveone.org we will bring this local, examining a broad range of issues impacting the surrounding Twin Cities community. In doing so, we will provide a statistical consulting service for partnering organizations, from the Central Corridor neighborhoods to the West Side. Course activities will include community site visits and material will cover advanced topics in multivariate statistical modeling including hypothesis testing, confidence intervals, and data visualization.
