Summary: Adopted at a wide range of schools across the country, from Eastern Kentucky University, to the University of Michigan, to Bismarck State College, to Northwestern University! Features of this new edition include the following... Consistently throughout the book, discussion of statistical techniques and concepts has been edited and streamlined, and the overall presentation is tighter. The majority of GSS94 chapter examples have been updated to GSS96. All Census data h
as been updated to 1998 sources. Chapters 13 and 14 have been revised and combined into one chapter. The concept of critical value of t has been eliminated, as well as one sample Z-test. Assessment of the probability of obtained t-test has been introduced, and the 6 step model has been modified to a 5 step model. Additional end of chapter exercises have been added, on topics such as international data, criminal justice, and the elderly. New and revised SPSS end of chapter exercises have been modified to fit GSS96 datasets. Two modules or subsets have been created in the GSS96 Datasets for SPSS Exercises -- one for family/women's issues; the other for diversity/race issues."Not only shows how integrating issues of diversity can be done in a way that furthers the traditional objectives of statistics courses, but also in a way that makes science a warmer classroom and career climate for women and students of color. This book is pathbreaking." Kate Berheide, Skidmore College "The exercises are excellent; I consider them a particular strength of the text. Plus the use of real examples gives relevancy and meaning to the concepts." Holly S. Gimpel, Saint Joseph's College.
