Assuming no prior knowledge of statistics, these authors combine their varied backgrounds-one a statistician, the other a social scientist-to introduce statistical methods with a high degree of statistical accuracy and a wealth of examples that are interesting and relevant to social scientists. The Fourth Edition has been both updated and improved to integrate real-world data into examples and exercises, and make coverage more accessible throughout.

Review:

"This text is readable, understandable, and well-organized. It provides good examples with SPSS output." (Robert Wilson, University of Delaware). "Overall, [Agresti/ Finlay] is a good book for introductory statistics that targets general audiences...it covers most topics you want to cover and allows the instructor to choose which topics to include." (Youqin Huang, State University of New York, Albany) "I originally started using the Agresti/ Finlay book based on its reputation as "the class of the market," in terms of being unfailingly statistically correct and having a "modern" perspective. By "modern," I mean that it is model rather than test oriented, that it gives heavy emphasis to confidence intervals and p-values rather than using arbitrary levels of significance, and that it eschews computational formulae. It has met those expectations..." (Michael Lacey, Colorado State University) .,"the book has been a good and helpful resource for me in preparing the class notes and assigning homework qustions. The main concepts to be understood by students are sampling distribution, confidence interval, p-value, linear regression. The book helps in this..." (Arne Bathke, University of Kentucky)
