Adopting a broad view of statistical inference, this text concentrates on what various techniques do, with mathematical proofs kept to a minimum. The approach is rigorous, but will be accessible to final year undergraduates. Classical approaches to point estimation, hypothesis testing andinterval estimation are all covered thoroughly, with recent developments outlined. Separate chapters are devoted to Bayesian inference, to decision theory and to non-parametric and robust inference. The increasingly important topics of computationally intensive methods and generalised linear modelsare also included. In this edition, the material on recent developments has been updated, and additional exercises are included in most chapters.
