PAI MANAGEMENT INSTITUTE, MANIPAL Business Statistics Programme : PGDM HC Batch : 2011 2013 Term: 1 Course ID : BSST Credits : 3 Course Instructor : Prof. Sanal T.S Introduction: Most of the decision making process in health care has a random component in it. Probability and statistical methods have the ability to study random component more scientifically. Applications of probability and statistics in managerial decisions enhance the objectivity of decisions. This course intends to provide an exposure to the application of probabilistic concepts and various statistical techniques for managerial inference in health care. Objectives: 1. Acquire knowledge about the concept and application of probability, Probability distribution for discrete and continuous random variables 2. Distinguish the relation between population and sample, and how and why sample information is used to infer population attributes and its relevance for business 3. Interpret various statistical tools of data analysis

4. Use SPSS and Microsoft Excel for data management and statistical analysis Learning Objectives: At the end of the course students will be able to 1. Compute and interpret probability and its distributions. 2. Decide where to apply and how to interpret parametric and non parametric tests. 3. Apply and interpret correlation and regression techniques in health care scenario. 4. Demonstrate the skill to work with SPSS and Microsoft Excel. 5. Interpret the findings of National Family Health Survey (NFHS-3), Indian Census 2011, Demographic and health survey 2011. Course Content: Probability, Discrete Distributions, Continuous Distributions, Sampling & sampling distributions, Estimation of Population Mean & Proportion, Hypothesis testing for single population parameter and differences in two

means & proportions, Analysis of Variance & Design of Experiments, Analysis of Categorical Data, Nonparametric tests, Correlation, Regression Modeling, Epidemiological measures, Data management and statistical analysis using SPSS & Excel.
