9780128034590: Essential Statistics, Regression, and Econometrics, Second Edition

Essential Statistics, Regression, and Econometrics, Second Edition, is innovative in its focus on preparing students for regression/econometrics, and in its extended emphasis on statistical reasoning, real data, pitfalls in data analysis, and modeling issues. This book is uncommonly approachable and easy to use, with extensive word problems that emphasize intuition and understanding. Too many students mistakenly believe that statistics courses are too abstract, mathematical, and tedious to be useful or interesting. To demonstrate the power, elegance, and even beauty of statistical reasoning, this book provides hundreds of new and updated interesting and relevant examples, and discusses not only the uses but also the abuses of statistics. The examples are drawn from many areas to show that statistical reasoning is not an irrelevant abstraction, but an important part of everyday life.

  • Includes hundreds of updated and new, real-world examples to engage students in the meaning and impact of statistics
  • Focuses on essential information to enable students to develop their own statistical reasoning
  • Ideal for one-quarter or one-semester courses taught in economics, business, finance, politics, sociology, and psychology departments, as well as in law and medical schools
  • Accompanied by an ancillary website with an instructors solutions manual, student solutions manual and supplementing chapters

Review:

"It is very well written, and covers the basics clearly and understandably to someone with only high school algebra - nothing more advanced is needed." --MAA Reviews

"I can wholeheartedly recommend this book as an introductory book for a statistics course taught to early undergraduate economics students. It is clear and well-written and contains a wealth of interesting examples, exercises, and historical anecdotes. The author has done an excellent job..." --The Gazette
