In the last decade cosmology has become a data driven science, thanks to a wealth of high-quality observational data. With the increase in the quantity and quality of the observations, we find ourselves in a position where more sophisticated statistical analysis tools are required to face the growing complexity of our cosmological models. The talk will give an overview of some of the statistical challenges in modern cosmology, and discuss problems ranging from parameter inference to model selection and also touch upon observers’ selection effects.
