Popular in previous editions, this Third Edition
continues to help build students' confidence and ability in doing statistical analysis by slowly moving from concepts that require little computational work to those that require more. Author R. Mark Sirkin once again demonstrates how statistics can be used so that students come to appreciate their usefulness rather than fear them. Statistics for the Social Sciences
emphasizes the analysis and interpretation of data to give students a feel for how data interpretation is related to the methods by which the information was obtained.
