About this book

This is an introductory applied statistics text that can be used for a one- or two-semester course at either the undergraduate or graduate level. Central features are its hands-on approach; the use of real data; the wealth of exercises and illustrated examples using these data; the complete set of detailed answers to exercises in an appendix; the presentation of statistical methods with a clear, conceptual emphasis that includes an historical account of each method; and the integration of SPSS in a way that reflects statistical practice. Step-by-step instructions for using SPSS are provided as each new analytic procedure is introduced. A data CD is included with the text so that students may conduct their own statistical analyses and learn firsthand how statistics is used in practice.

Media reviews

"A hands-on approach and a wealth of exercises and examples immerse the reader in the process of data analysis from the very beginning. Students and practitioners alike will benefit from the book's careful, gentle prose, its use of real data, and its step-by-step demonstrations of analytical techniques in SPSS. Perhaps best of all, the authors remain firmly grounded in application."
