A First Course In Mathematical Statistics
by C.E. Weatherburn
Publisher: Cambridge University Press 1961
Number of pages: 302
This book provides the mathematical foundations of statistics. Its aim is to explain the principles, to prove the formulae to give validity to the methods employed in the interpretation of statistical data. Many examples are included but, since the primary emphasis is on the underlying theory, it is of interest to students of a wide variety of subjects.

This document is directed toward students for whom mathematical statistics is or will become an important part of their lives. Obviously, such students should be able to work through the details of 'hard' proofs and derivations.

First part of the book is within the understanding of the ordinary person. Part 2 is more mathematical, but the results are explained in such a way that the reader shall gain a general idea of the theory and applications without mastering the proofs.
Statistics is the study of the collection, analysis, interpretation, presentation and organization of data. It deals with all aspects of data including the planning of data collection in terms of the design of surveys and experiments.
