Statistical inference uses mathematics to draw conclusions in the presence of uncertainty. This generalizes deterministic reasoning, with the absence of uncertainty as a special case. Statistical inference uses quantitative or qualitative (categorical) data which may be subject to random variations. Critical Analysis of Ian Hacking's Book "Logic of Statistical Inference".

This book builds theoretical statistics from the first principles of probability theory. Starting from the basics of probability, the authors develop the theory of statistical inference using techniques, definitions, and concepts that are statistical and are natural /5. THE LOGIC OF CAUSAL INFERENCE parameters, variables, and functional forms - then the analysis given permits us to say in a well-defined manner exactly what causes what. In empirical work, however, we generally have observations on vari-ables, have at best some theoretically based guess of the functional forms, and must estimate the Size: 1MB.

Hacking. Statistical inference is the process of using data analysis to deduce properties of an underlying distribution of probability. Inferential statistical analysis infers properties of a population, for example by testing hypotheses and deriving is assumed that the observed data set is sampled from a larger population.

There are many modes of performing inference including statistical modeling, data oriented strategies and explicit use of designs and randomization in Info: Course 6 of 10 in the Data.
