Abstract:

"Widely adopted in previous editions, the Fourth Edition of this text uniquely links social issues and sociological concepts with statistical techniques. Recognizing that we live in a world characterized by a growing diversity and richness of social differences, authors Chava Frankfort-Nachmias and Anna Leon-Guerrero integrate clear explanations of statistical techniques with issues of particular relevance to society and of interest to students. Using straightforward prose, tapping students' intuition and common sense, Social Statistics for a Diverse Society teaches basic statistics while incorporating real inferential statistics, and research examples related to the dynamic interplay of race, class, gender, and other social variables within our society and the world at large." "Social Statistics for a Diverse Society provides students with a revealing introduction to social science statistics. This Fourth Edition maintains the same informal, conversational writing style, along with the many pedagogical features that made previous editions so successful. It is an excellent textbook for students taking their first course in social statistics and can also be used in a number of sociological research methods courses."--Jacket.
