## Statistical InferenceThis text provides information on topics such as ancillarity, invariance, Bayesian methods, pivots, Stein estimation, errors in variables and inequalities. The authors discuss both theoretical statistics and the practical applications of the theoretical developments. Many ideas are introduced in the context of data analysis rather than pure mathematics. |

#### Review: Statistical Inference

User Review - Omar - GoodreadsNot bad but also not overly special. Self-instruction will be tough, but the solution manual may assist with that. Proofs are sometimes not provided which can make that harder. If taking as part of a formal course, make sure to engage the Professor or instructor on those more difficult matters. Read full review
