Summary
The new edition of Lind’s Statistical Techniques in Business and Economics is a perennial market best seller due to its comprehensive coverage of statistical concepts and methods delivered in a student-friendly, step-by-step format. The text is non-threatening and presents concepts clearly and succinctly with a conversational writing style. All statistical concepts are illustrated with solved applied examples immediately upon introduction. Self reviews and exercises for each section, and review sections for groups of chapters also support the student learning steps. Modern computing applications (Excel, Minitab, and MegaStat) are introduced, but the text maintains a focus on presenting statistics concepts as applied in business as opposed to technology or programming methods. The thirteenth edition continues as a students’ text with increased emphasis on interpretation of data and results.

New Features
  • Z Versus T: The division between the z and t distributions is based sigma known or unknown rather than on sample sizes
  • Multiple Regression: Treatment now includes an investigation of the theory behind the linear model along with tests for the violation of each assumption.
  • Robust Technology Package: Lind 13e features additional detail in the software sections, is available with Homework Manager/Homework Manager Plus, and is available as a Zinio eBook. Excel, MegaStat, and Minitab are integrated throughout the text, in enough detail to support students.
