### Summary

Předmět představuje vstupní kurs do problematiky pravděpodobnosti a statistiky. Poskytuje základy k dovednosti popisovat náhodné procesy v ekonomii pomocí náhodných proměnných a náhodných vektorů. Seznamuje se základy deskriptivní statistiky, statistické indukce, regresní analýzy, korelační analýzy pro statistická data jedno i vícerozměrná. Poskytuje návod jak provádět statistická šetření a na jejich základě vyslovovat závěry o celé populaci. Tyto postupy jsou základem mnoha technik používaných v ekonomice (rozhodování, plánování výroby, průzkum trhu, kontrola jakosti, prognostika, personální politika apod.).
