David A. Patterson and Randall E. Basham have produced the first book and CD-ROM to combine text, video and graphs to clearly describe and illustrate how social workers can use spreadsheets to collect data, analyze statistics and create graphs of research results. Students and professionals will find this an excellent guide to taking advantage of spreadsheet software, an underutilized, inexpensive and commonly available data analytic tool found in most, if not all, agency settings.
Data Analysis with Spreadsheest offer instructors clearly articulated descriptions and video demonstrations of data analysis procedures that are commonly referred to in research and practice evaluation texts. This text and CD-ROM present a variety of ways to select random samples and clearly demonstrate how to produce descriptive statistics, frequency distributions, and bivariate analyses using spreadsheets.

“I have nothing but praise for this book. Hurry and publish it.”
Steve Marson, UNC Pembroke
“The CD-Rom is a valuable accompaniment to the text, especially for visual and auditory learners. The voices are audible and at a pace that listeners can easily follow along. The table layout where users can click on the chapter and topics they are interested in is easy to navigate. I would definitely consider adopting this text for my course.”
Margaret E. Adamek, Indiana University
“The authors are correct in stating that computers with spreadsheets are widely available, and that they contain powerful functions. As such, it is helpful to have a text that can show future practitioners how to use these tools to improve their practice. The CD provides an excellent supplement to the text. Students can use the CD at their own speed, can repeat lessons as necessary and can use the CD in their agencies to analyze data.”
John Goad, Arizona State University
