If you know how to program, you have the skills to turn data into knowledge using the tools of probability and statistics. This concise introduction shows you how to perform statistical analysis computationally, rather than mathematically, with programs written in Python.

You'll work with a case study throughout the book to help you learn the entire data analysis process—from collecting data and generating statistics to identifying patterns and testing hypotheses. Along the way, you'll become familiar with distributions, the rules of probability, visualization, and many other tools and concepts.

  • Develop your understanding of probability and statistics by writing and testing code
  • Run experiments to test statistical behavior, such as generating samples from several distributions
  • Use simulations to understand concepts that are hard to grasp mathematically
  • Learn topics not usually covered in an introductory course, such as Bayesian estimation
  • Import data from almost any source using Python, rather than be limited to data that has been cleaned and formatted for statistics tools
  • Use statistical inference to answer questions about real-world data

Book Description:

Probability and Statistics for Programmers

From the Author:

I wrote this book for a class I developed at Olin College.  The goal of the class is to teach students to use statistical tools to explore real datasets and answer interesting questions.  The webpage for the class is here: sites.google.com/site/thinkstats2011a --- it includes my lecture notes, in-class exercises, homeworks, etc.The examples in this book are in Python, but it is a simple subset of Python.  If you have read the first 14 chapters of Think Python, you are ready to go.
