A clear presentation, accessible language, and step-by-step examples are the hallmarks of this solid introduction to behavioral statistics. Targeted to students in a variety of social science programs, and assuming only basic knowledge of mathematics and algebra, *Applied Statistics for Behavioral Sciences* provides a broad survey of procedures, comprehensive coverage of statistical theory, and abundant cross-discipline applications.

*New!*A disk with five data sets in three formats (SPSS, ASCII, and SPSSX Portable) accompanies each student text, with computer exercises and descriptions in a new text appendix.*New!**Computer Example*boxes throughout the text demonstrate how to interpret SPSS computer output.*New!*Coverage of Chi Square (*X*²) Tests for Frequencies has been revised for better flow of content, and new examples provide a more logical progression.- Cross-disciplinary applied research exercises in psychology, education, sociology, political science, and marketing help students relate the study of statistics to their various courses.
- Coverage unique to this text and vital to the understanding of current research literature includes power and sample size, multiple comparison tests, multiple regression, and analysis of covariance.
- This edition offers numerous updated examples, new coverage on interpreting computer output, and revised, earlier treatment of bivariate regression.
