This is a 10-week course focused on introducing basic concepts in statistical inference. We start from a touch of dimension-reduction/efficient-estimation through sufficient, ancillary, and complete statistics, then take a tour of the information inequality and MLE, and end the course with an introduction to elementary decision theory.
