Summary

Applied Statistics for the Social and Health Sciencesprovides graduate students in the social and health sciences with the basic skills that they need to estimate, interpret, present, and publish statistical models using contemporary standards. The book targets the social and health science branches such as human development, public health, sociology, psychology, education, and social work in which students bring a wide range of mathematical skills and have a wide range of methodological affinities. For these students, a successful course in statistics will not only offer statistical content but will also help them develop an appreciation for how statistical techniques might answer some of the research questions of interest to them.

Key features of the book include:

  • Interweaving the teaching of statistical concepts with examples developed for the course from publicly-available social science data or drawn from the literature.
  • Thorough integration of teaching statistical theory with teaching data processing and analysis.
  • Teaching of both SAS and Stata ''side-by-side'' and use of chapter exercises in which students practice programming and interpretation on the same data set and course exercises in which students can choose their own research questions and data set.
