About this book

Introduction

This text offers a clear and user-friendly introduction to the basic concepts and techniques social science students need for a thorough grounding in statistics. Using a simple step-by-step procedure, it guides the reader through the basic concepts of data description, sampling estimation, inference and association/correlation, explaining each one and its application to 'real life' problems. Boxed definitions, worked practical examples and exercises support the reader throughout and data-disks are included in both Macintosh and Windows formats to generate results and replicate the procedures described.
