Description:
After a review of free statistics programs, and web sources for further study, the book begins by expanding on some of the basic concepts such data types and variables. Great emphasis is put on various easy ways of describing data. This must precede anything more sophisticated. The basic choice then is between the family of statistics which compares groups, and the family which studies associations or correlations. Only then, once these three major areas of statistics are mastered, students are ready for more detail in the choice of statistical test. At this point the old statistics, with its emphasis on significance testing and the null hypothesis is presented, then thoroughly critiqued.
