### Summary

Statistics is an integral part of curricula at the economic faculties. It is also the necessary prerequisite to study other economic subjects. In the course Statistics B the knowledge of statistics and probability theory obtained in the bachelor‘s study is extended. The students will get acquainted with the system of economic indicators used in the Czech Republic and the EU, they will learn to process and analyse statistical data using methods of descriptive statistics and statistical induction (statistical estimates, tests), which are the basis of many techniques used in economy and business (market research, production planning, quality control, managerial decision making and forecasting, personnel policy, etc.). When working with data, appropriate statistical software is used.
