Besides,  this course  encompasses an introduction to  the concept of correlation and its measurement. Moreover , the course presents both Point Biserial coefficient for correlation  and Spearman rank coefficient .It also deals  with the statistical analysis of demographic data. The course ends with introducing the concept of probability , its definition, some of its rules and some examples of applications .
