Learn statistical reasoning and problem solving from a best-selling author who uses a wealth of examples from the social and behavioral sciences,, education,, nursing/allied health, and business fields--as well as examples from everyday life-to help you learn and understand. Praised for his clear explanations, Spatz shows you how to start with a data set, identify the questions it poses, determine and carry out statistical procedures, and using plain English, tell the story the data reveal.
