- Hi, I'm Curt Frye. Welcome to Excel 2007 Business Statistics. In this course I'll show you powerful techniques that you can use to analyze your business data to help you make better decisions about your company and it's operations. I'll start by showing you how to use Excels built in tools to manage your data, examine your formulas and install the Analysis ToolPak add-in which greatly extends your ability to analyze data in Excel. Next, I'll define important statistical terms, discuss the two different types of statistical analysis and provide an overview of how you can use statistics to help run your business.

With that information in mind, I'll dive into the specifics of statistics in Excel, showing you how to summarize your data by using charts and graphs, creating frequency distributions for non numerical data and by calculating averages, standard deviations, and other useful statistics. The last half of the course presents more advanced techniques, such as analyzing several distinct data distributions inferring information about a dataset based on the sample and testing hypothesis.

I'll end the course with a look at forecasting and linear regression, techniques you can use to plan the future of your business. Excel 2007 provides powerful statistical capabilities that help you gain useful insights. I'm sure you'll find this course will be time well spent.
