Critical Data Analysis in Regulation
This course is part of the following part-time on campus and/or online program(s):
Regulatory decisions require not only an understanding of statistical data and processes, but also the ability to think critically about their application. Students investigate how statistical information is used to make regulatory decisions and explore the type of statistical analyses that are most appropriate in the various regulatory sectors. Students apply basic statistical concepts to data and explain their utility in regulatory decision-making. Using case studies, students use performance data to investigate the effectiveness of a regulatory framework for a manufacturing process.
