9781412997591: Your Statistical Consultant: Answers to Your Data Analysis Questions

Although many graduate students and researchers have had course work in statistics, they sometimes find themselves stumped in proceeding with a particular data analysis question. In fact, statistics is often taught as a lesson in mathematics as opposed to a strategy for answering questions about world[?], leaving beginning researchers at a loss for how to proceed. In these situations, it is common to turn to a statistical expert, the "go to" person when questions regarding appropriate data analysis emerge. Your Statistical Consultant is an authentic alternative resource for describing, explaining, and making recommendations regarding thorny or confusing statistical issues. Written to be responsive to a wide range of inquiries and levels of expertise, this book is flexibly organized so readers can either read it sequentially or turn directly to the sections that correspond to their concerns and questions.

Psychology (Clinical), a Diplomate of the American Academy of Experts in Traumatic Stress, and holds an Honorary Doctorate of Science from The Professional School of Psychology.

Review:

This book is valuable for its interpretation of alternative approaches to traditional statistical inferences... The second edition is noticeably updated and clearly replaces the earlier 1999 publication... Just opening it gives a clear road map with key points in italics and key terms in boldface. The links to statistical websites are gems. This textbook supplement is ideal for advanced students, practitioners, and faculty in the social sciences. Summing Up: Highly recommended.

--CHOICE (04/01/2013)

"The best feature of the book is that it covers the analytical processes left out of most research and statistics courses. It is very practical and most importantly, easy to read and understand. I have students continually tell me that they still have their 'Statistical Consultant' and they use it all the time."--Barry B. Shultz
