BOOK EXCERPT:

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.

BOOK EXCERPT:

This best-selling text is written for those who use, rather than develop statistical methods. Dr. Stevens focuses on a conceptual understanding of the material rather than on proving results. Helpful narrative and numerous examples enhance understanding and a chapter on matrix algebra serves as a review. Annotated printouts from SPSS and SAS indicate what the numbers mean and encourage interpretation of the results. In addition to demonstrating how to use these packages, the author stresses the importance of checking the data, assessing the assumptions, and ensuring adequate sample size by providing guidelines so that the results can be generalized. The book is noted for its extensive applied coverage of MANOVA, its emphasis on statistical power, and numerous exercises including answers to half. The new edition features: New chapters on Hierarchical Linear Modeling (Ch. 15) and Structural Equation Modeling (Ch. 16) New exercises that feature recent journal articles to demonstrate the actual use of multiple regression (Ch. 3), MANOVA (Ch. 5), and repeated measures (Ch. 13) A new appendix on the analysis of correlated observations (Ch. 6) Expanded discussions on obtaining non-orthogonal contrasts in repeated measures designs with SPSS and how to make the identification of cell ID easier in log linear analysis in 4 or 5 way designs Updated versions of SPSS (15.0) and SAS (8.0) are used throughout the text and introduced in chapter 1 A book website with data sets and more. Ideal for courses on multivariate statistics found in psychology, education, sociology, and business departments, the book also appeals to practicing researchers with little or no training in multivariate methods. Prerequisites include a course on factorial ANOVA and covariance. Working knowledge of matrix algebra is not assumed.

BOOK EXCERPT:

A comprehensive guide to the practical applications of statistics in social sciences This book brings out the relevance of statistical tools and methods in social sciences. Describing the various statistical techniques, it highlights their purpose and application along with a brief overview on how to interpret results and draw inferences. Topical and up-to-date, it examines: • different types of statistical variables and their treatment • tabulation and graphical presentation of data • theoretical distributions and common parametric and non-parametric tests, including analysis of variance and correlation ratio • linear regression including checking for violation of assumptions, transformations of variables and predictions • inequality measures such as Lorenz curve, Gini coefficient, dissimilarity index and human development index among others. It will be indispensable for students and scholars of statistics, econometrics, psychology and those interested in the application of statistics in social sciences.

BOOK EXCERPT:

This book not only provides a simple description of the basic concepts and principles of statistical analysis for the social sciences, it also points to failures of methods and offers ways to correct such problems. For example, it was once thought that standard hypothesis testing procedures for means have relatively high power under nonnormality. Many studies have since demonstrated that power can be very low even with very slight departures from normality. This bookexplains how and why such departures can occur. Statistics for the Social Sciences goes beyond the typical introductory material on probability and statistical inference to incorporate modern topics of critical importance in social science research. The text includes coverage of such topics asrobust methods for comparing measures of location; modern regression techniques; recent developments associated with heteroscedastic procedures; the latest developments in nonparametric statistics; and a full chapter on multiple comparison procedures. The accompanying disk contains more than 150 easy-to-use Minitab macros that provide the student with state-of-the-art statistical methods not available in standard statistical packages. Once the data are read into Minitab, a single command provides access to more powerful, more flexible, and more accurate statistical procedures. Extensive use of real data in examples and exercises Includes a disk with 150 Minitab macros for all the modern, nonstandard procedures Explains why certain methods might fail and what to do to correct such problems Provides exercises at the end of each chapter
