The second edition of Social Statistics has been reformatted, fully updated, and revised with new examples and new GSS data. This introduction to social statistics, with clear, well-illustrated instructions for using SPSS software, emphasizes the interpretation of statistics and applications to real-world situations. Concepts and computations are introduced in manageable segments, which are followed by opportunities to practice the computations manually and on the computer. Avoiding Common Pitfalls sections anticipate the ways students often get stuck or confused and offer solutions and helpful hints. News to Use sections offer examples from newspapers, magazines, and the Internet that show how statistics are used in everyday life and also provide models for the analysis and interpretation of data. The models are then applied to the relevant variables extracted from the most recent General Social Survey. All in all, no other introduction to statistics offers so much practical application to the world around us.Richard J. Kendrick is the author of 'Social Statistics: An Introduction Using SPSS (2nd Edition)', published 2004 under ISBN 9780205395088 and ISBN 0205395082.
