A straightforward book that integrates the traditional foundations of statistical inference with the more modern ideas of data analysis. Divided into three sections, it begins with a description of data in general and groups of numbers in particular. Part two develops concepts of randomness, probability and statistical inference. Lastly, it applies these ideas to more complex data structures and the analysis of relationships. This edition contains more problems, exercises and updated examples.
