The topics are presented in the same sequence as in a first course -not in SPSS groupings. For instance, instead of a single chapter on using SPSS to produce a variety of statistical figures, each type of figure is illustrated at an appropriate point in this text. The sequential organization makes it easy for students to navigate SPSS for the specific purposes they need in class. No previous knowledge of SPSS is assumed. Each step is clearly explained and fully illustrated. Each chapter defines one or two statistics, describes when to use them, and illustrates how to compute them using SPSS. Each chapter shows how to format raw SPSS output and describe it in a research report. All examples are consistent with the styles specified in the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association.. Hundreds of screenshots with superimposed arrows make it easy for students to follow the step-by-step directions for using SPSS. End-of-chapter exercises help students master their new skills. An answer key will be included with each examination copy. New to this edition: A new chapter (Chapter 11) on simple linear regression has been added to this edition, providing more comprehensive coverage of statistics commonly included in introductory statistics textbooks.

A comprehensive and self-contained introduction to the field, carefully balancing mathematical theory and practical applications. It starts at an elementary level, developing concepts of multivariate distributions from first principles. After a chapter on the multivariate normal distribution reviewing the classical parametric theory, methods of estimation are explored using the plug-in principles as well as maximum likelihood. Two chapters on discrimination and classification, including logistic regression, form the core of the book, followed by methods of testing hypotheses developed from heuristic principles, likelihood ratio tests and permutation tests. Finally, the powerful self-consistency principle is used to introduce principal components as a method of approximation, rounded off by a chapter on finite mixture analysis.

A FIRST COURSE IN STATISTICAL METHODS addresses a pressing need in the methods course—a shorter text designed for a one-term course. By selecting and revising material from their best-selling two-semester text, AN INTRODUCTION TO STATISTICAL METHODS AND DATA ANALYSIS, Fifth Edition, the authors created an ideal book for a one-term course in statistical methods. Based on the belief that statistics is a thought process tied to the scientific method, the text utilizes a 5-step approach: 1) defining the problem, 2) collecting data, 3) summarizing data, 4) analyzing and interpreting the data, and 5) communicating the results of the analysis.

Originally published in 1958, this informative textbook is the first part of a two-volume set, which explores the subject of statistics in full, from elementary to advanced level. Primarily aimed at school students as a course of self-study, this first part focuses on the elementary and contains multiple examples and exercises, predominantly taken from past examination papers so as to meet the requirements of examinations at the time of publication. Chapters cover all of the key topics expected of an elementary-level statistics course; chapter titles include, 'Frequency distributions', 'Averages' and 'The analysis of a time-series'. Notably, the more difficult sections are marked with asterisks and tables of logarithms, antilogarithms, squares and square roots are included for reference. This 'numerical, experimental and practical' book will be of great value to scholars of mathematics as well as to anyone with an interest in physics, economics and the history of education.

This textbook provides a coherent introduction to the main concepts and methods of one-parameter statistical inference. Intended for students of Mathematics taking their first course in Statistics, the focus is on Statistics for Mathematicians rather than on Mathematical Statistics. The goal is not to focus on the mathematical/theoretical aspects of the subject, but rather to provide an introduction to the subject tailored to the mindset and tastes of Mathematics students, who are sometimes turned off by the informal nature of Statistics courses. This book can be used as the basis for an elementary semester-long first course on Statistics with a firm sense of direction that does not sacrifice rigor. The deeper goal of the text is to attract the attention of promising Mathematics students.
