Continuing its hallmark use of humour, this text helps students develop an understanding of an often intimidating and difficult subject with an approach that is informative, personable, and clear. Author Neil J. Salkind takes students through various statistical procedures, beginning with descriptive statistics, correlation, and graphical representation of data, and ending with inferential techniques and analysis of variance. In addition, the book covers SPSS and includes reviews of more advanced techniques, such as reliability, validity, and introductory non-parametric statistics. The new Fifth Edition offers more examples than ever before, and a new Real World Stats feature at the end of each chapter.

Interactive eBook Edition available!
The interactive eBook edition features animations of figures in the book, step-by-step videos that demonstrate how to carry out various procedures, data sets that are clickable right from the book pages, quick quizzes, video clips of the author talking about statistics in everyday life, and much more to help students boost their confidence with statistics. The interactive eBook is available for FREE when purchased as a bundle using ISBN 9781483344201 and provides 180 day access.

Review:

“The author has a wonderful way of taking complex material and presenting it to an already anxiety-filled audience in a manner that not only sets students’ nerves at ease but facilitates their learning to apply the material in useful ways. This text should be required reading in all beginning-level stats classes if for no other reason than to build confidence in the students.” (Christopher J. Maglio)

“There is no extraneous information in the text. It's what students need to know, presented in a way that does not intimidate.” (Adriana Buliga-Stoian)

“The word statistics is often seen as a nasty word to social scientists but Salkind deals with that and makes it somewhat enjoyable for the students and an absolute joy for the instructors.” (Dr. David F. Nicholson)

“It is easy to follow and great for learning . . . My students absolutely love the book.” (Soomi Lee)

“I truly think this is the best statistics book I have encountered." (Daniel R. Block)

About the Author:

Neil J. Salkind received his PhD in human development from the University of Maryland, and after teaching for 35 years at the University of Kansas, he was Professor Emeritus in the Department of Psychology and Research in Education, where he collaborated with colleagues and work with students. His early interests were in the area of children’s cognitive development, and after research in the areas of cognitive style and (what was then known as) hyperactivity, he was a postdoctoral fellow at the University of North Carolina’s Bush Center for Child and Family Policy. His work then changed direction to focus on child and family policy, specifically the impact of alternative forms of public support on various child and family outcomes. He delivered more than 150 professional papers and presentations; written more than 100 trade and textbooks; and is the author of Statistics for People Who (Think They) Hate Statistics (SAGE), Theories of Human Development (SAGE), and Exploring Research (Prentice Hall). He has edited several encyclopedias, including the Encyclopedia of Human Development, the Encyclopedia of Measurement and Statistics, and the Encyclopedia of Research Design. He was editor of Child Development Abstracts and Bibliography for 13 years. He lived in Lawrence, Kansas, where he liked to read, swim with the River City Sharks, work as the proprietor and sole employee of big boy press, bake brownies (see www.statisticsforpeople.com for the recipe), and poke around old Volvos and old houses.
