Statistics by David Freedman ( Book )
49 editions published between 1974 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,863 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Statistics teaches students how to think about statistical issues. It is written in clear, everyday language, without the equations that baffle non-mathematical readers. The techniques are all introduced through examples, showing how statistics has helped solve major problems in economics, education, genetics, medicine, physics, political science, psychology, and other fields. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition

Statistical models : theory and practice by David Freedman ( Book )
38 editions published between 2005 and 2009 in English and held by 662 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Statistical Models is a textbook that explains the things you have to know in order to read empirical papers in the social and health sciences, as well as techniques you need to build statistical models of your own." "The author, David A. Freedman, explains the basic ideas of association and regression, and takes you through the current models that link these ideas to causality. He focuses on applications of linear models, including generalized least squares and two-stage least squares, with probits and logits for binary variables." "Target audiences include undergraduates and beginning graduate students in statistics, as well as students and professionals in the social and health sciences. The discussion in the book is organized around published studies, as are many of the exercises. Relevant journal articles are reprinted at the back of the book."--BOOK JACKET

Statistical models and causal inference : a dialogue with the social sciences by David Freedman ( Book )
16 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 336 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"David A. Freedman presents here a definitive synthesis of his approach to causal inference in the social sciences. He explores the foundations and limitations of statistical modeling, illustrating basic arguments with examples from political science, public policy, law, and epidemiology. Freedman maintains that many new technical approaches to statistical modeling constitute not progress, but regress. Instead, he advocates a 'shoe leather' methodology, which exploits natural variation to mitigate confounding and relies on intimate knowledge of the subject matter to develop meticulous research designs and eliminate rival explanations. When Freedman first enunciated this position, he was met with scepticism, in part because it was hard to believe that a mathematical statistician of his stature would favor 'low-tech' approaches. But the tide is turning. Many social scientists now agree that statistical technique cannot substitute for good research design and subject matter knowledge. This book offers an integrated presentation of Freedman's views"--Provided by publisher
