This new edition emphasizes the role of statistics in ongoing research - following the path from descriptive statistics to inferential statistics, and on to advanced topics. The book uses the raw data from several recently published studies to teach students the rationale of research design and statistical analysis. Students are encouraged to think statistically about all aspects of everyday life the use of applications drawn from contemporary behavioural science research. More time is devoted to the rationale of research design and statistical analysis than in previous editions, encouraging statistical literacy. Boxes provide a brief summary of research goals, exposing students to actual social science examples.
