Summary

This introductory text provides students with a conceptual understanding of basic statistical procedures, as well as the computational skills needed to complete them. The clear presentation, accessible language, and step-by-step instruction make it easy for students from a variety of social science disciplines to grasp the material. The scenarios presented in chapter exercises span the curriculum, from political science to marketing, so that students make a connection between their own area of interest and the study of statistics.

Unique coverage focuses on concepts critical to understanding current statistical research such as power and sample size, multiple comparison tests, multiple regression, and analysis of covariance. Student-centered pedagogy in every chapter includes an opening list of key concepts, highlighted key statements throughout, a summary, and exercises with answers at the end of the text.

  • New! Additional SPSS coverage throughout the text includes computer printouts and expanded discussion of their contents in interpreting the results of sample exercises.
  • New! Coverage of SPSS on the Web includes an introduction to SPSS, creating and saving SPSS data files, and specific SPSS procedures linked to chapters in the text.
  • New! Chapter 7 is titled "Sampling, Probability, and Sampling Distributions" to reflect the reordering of topics within.
  • Updated and expanded coverage of effect size in Chapter 13 and in several other chapters.
