BBA – III (Hons.)
Course Number :BA (H) – 451
Credit Hours : 03


After studying this course the student will know how to collect the data, its nature, its average value and variation in it. The student will be able to compare the variability of two or more heterogeneous groups. The student can compare the prices, quantities and values etc. of a group of related articles at one date with those of the same group of related articles at different date. The student will be able to evaluate the amount of relationship between two or more linearly related variables. In addition to this the student will be able to predict the expected production, demand, consumption etc.
