Douglas bors, "Data Analysis for the Social Sciences: Integrating Theory and Practice"
English | ISBN: 1446298477, 1446298485 | 2018 | EPUB | 664 pages | 29,2 MB

Accessible, engaging, and informative, this text will help any social science student approach statistics with confidence.

With a well-paced and well-judged integrated approach rather than a simple linear trajectory, this book progresses at a realistic speed that matches the pace at which statistics novices actually learn. Packed with global, interdisciplinary examples that ground statistical theory and concepts in real-world situations, it shows readers not only how to apply newfound knowledge using IBM® SPSS® Statistics, but also why they would want to. Spanning statistics basics like variables, constants, and sampling to t-tests, multiple regression, and factor analysis, it builds statistical literacy while also covering key research principles like research questions, error types, and results reliability.

Readers will learn how to:
Describe data with graphs, tables, and numbers
Calculate probability and value distributions
Test a priori and post hoc hypotheses
Conduct Chi-squared tests and observational studies
Structure ANOVA, ANCOVA, and factorial designs
Supported by extensive visuals and a companion website with interactive demonstrations, author video, and practice datasets, this book is the student-focused companion to support learners through their statistics journeys.
