Applying Social Statistics: An Introduction to Quantitative Reasoning in Sociology

Jay Alan Weinstein, "Applying Social Statistics: An Introduction to Quantitative Reasoning in Sociology"
English | 2010 | ISBN: 0742563731 | PDF | pages: 489 | 5.1 mb

While Applying Social Statistics is 'about' social statistics and includes all of the topics generally covered in similar texts, it is first and foremost a book about how sociologists use statistics. Its emphasis is on statistical reasoning in sociology and on showing how these principles can be applied to numerous problems in a wide variety of contexts; to answer effectively the question 'what's it for.' A main learning objective is to help students understand how and why social statistics is used. Yet, Weinstein's style and substance recognize that it is of equal-or even greater-importance that they begin to learn how to apply these principles and techniques themselves.
