Students will be introduced to methods of identifying and classifying data, followed by explanations and demonstrations of statistical procedures. They will learn what statistical techniques are appropriate for particular data, why procedures give the results they do, and how to interpret the output of statistical analyses. The book features updated statistical output, clear explanations of how to perform the analyses being discussed, revised data files, additional data sets to increase students' ability to conduct research on their own, and extensive use of flowcharts and examples to maximize students' comprehension of the topic."@en ;
