This new edition helps readers to make sense of the numbers that they encounter: as consumers, voters, in business, and in school. Instead of focusing on mathematics and computations, the author explains the underlying logic of statistical analysis and problem solving, building one concept upon another to provide a solid framework for understanding how statistics are used, reported, and manipulated. Examples and demonstrations of real-life applications are included to enable the reader to think carefully about the statistics that confront us daily - in our newspapers, in the classroom, and in the claims of politicians and advertisers.

Review:

This fifth edition provides a logical method for understanding the concepts behind numbers, from deciphering ad claims and government reports to probing business realities. Students and professionals alike will relish a title which helps everyday individuals make sense of numbers and how they're interpreted and manipulated. -- Midwest Book Review
