Having graduated in econometrics I am now working as a Data Science Consultant. I would like to gain a deeper knowledge of (theory of) inferential statistics. Is there any recommendable online course/book/slide material in this area.

I would like to gain a deeper understanding of concepts like:

  • Cramer-Rao Lower Bound
  • Chapman-Robbins Bound
  • Rao-Blackwell Theorem
  • Central Limit theorem
  • etc.

Note: I do not need basic definitions as I am using statistics and econometrics for ~5 years already. My aim is to gain an understanding of the underlying theory.


You could have a look at :


Im pretty sure the quality is on point as I have done similar courses from Coursera.
