What Reviewers Are Saying About The 7th Edition "Weinbach and Grinnell have an engaging and interesting book that is useful to all students no matter what their previous level of statistical knowledge and ability….Rather than focusing on formulas and hand-calculating data, it presents examples of the use of statistical analyses related to social work practice. In this way, students learn that by understanding statistics they can become critical consumers of articles that can inform their practice." --Carolyn Turturro, University of Arkansas at Little Rock "I believe Statistics for Social Workersis the perfect textbook for training social welfare students….[My students] rather enjoy reading this text because it is easy to read and there are real application examples they can identify with in their agency placements." --Julia F.
