Agresti and Finley present statistical methods in a style that emphasizes their concepts and their application to the social sciences rather than the mathematics and computational details behind them.
Statistical Methods for the Social Sciences, 4e presents an introduction to statistical methods for students majoring in social science disciplines. No previous knowledge of statistics is assumed, and mathematical background is assumed to be minimal (lowest-level high-school algebra).
This text may be used in a one or two course sequence. Such sequences are commonly required of social science graduate students in sociology, political science, and psychology. Students in geography, anthropology, journalism, and speech also are sometimes required to take at least one statistics course.
