Based on years of first-hand teaching experience, Wendy J. Steinberg has created Statistics Alive!, the most user-friendly statistics text for students in the social and behavioral sciences, now in its Second Edition. She believes that this audience can master basic statistics--especially the mechanics and the underlying logic of hypothesis testing--by employing a conceptual, modular approach without dumbing down the presentation. While this textbook includes must-have topics such as frequency distributions, hypothesis formation, and inferential statistics and bivariate regression, it also includes concepts of sampling error, significant differences, and Type 1 and Type 2 errors throughout. Also, effect size and power, often shortchanged in other textbooks, each get substantive treatment. Students are well prepared for a next course in statistics. Key Features The modular treatment allows students to master prescribed chunks of information before continuing to the next module. Mathematical proofs are minimized, in favor of verbal explanations. Strong pedagogy throughout includes a series of learning objectives and key terms in the beginning of each chapter to scaffold the student's learning The "Check Yourself!" questions throughout allow for student knows immediately whether or not he has mastered what he has just read. The logical similarity of all hypothesis tests is stressed, so that the student understands the meaning of the calculations, as well as which statistics apply to which designs. A final module provides both a narrative review and a visual flow-chart for matching statistics with designs. New to the Second Edition Twice as many chapter exercises Solutions provided to the student for half of the exercises A final module on multiple regression and the General Liner Model is included, as a bridge for students continuing on to a second course in statistics SPSS point-and-click instructions and screen shots of the output for all in-text examples, so that students can solve the exercises both manually and via software Descriptive dispersion solutions shown using both N and n-1 denominators, to accommodate any instructor's preference A more comprehensive Student Study Guide and Instructor Resource Guide A version bound with SPSS Student Version 18.0 is also available (ISBN: 978-1-4129-7951-1).

Applied Business Statistics for Business and Management using Microsoft Excel is the first book to illustrate the capabilities of Microsoft Excel to teach applied statistics effectively. It is a step-by-step exercise-driven guide for students and practitioners who need to master Excel to solve practical statistical problems in industry. If understanding statistics isn’t your strongest suit, you are not especially mathematically-inclined, or if you are wary of computers, this is the right book for you. Excel, a widely available computer program for students and managers, is also an effective teaching and learning tool for quantitative analyses in statistics courses. Its powerful computational ability and graphical functions make learning statistics much easier than in years past. However, Applied Business Statistics for Business and Management capitalizes on these improvements by teaching students and practitioners how to apply Excel to statistical techniques necessary in their courses and workplace. Each chapter explains statistical formulas and directs the reader to use Excel commands to solve specific, easy-to-understand business problems. Practice problems are provided at the end of each chapter with their solutions.

Vital Statistics: an introduction to health science statistics e-book is a new Australian publication. This textbook draws on real world, health-related and local examples, with a broad appeal to the Health Sciences student. It demonstrates how an understanding of statistics is useful in the real world, as well as in statistics exams. Vital Statistics: an introduction to health science statistics e-book is a relatively easy-to-read book that will painlessly introduce or re-introduce you to the statistical basics before guiding you through more demanding statistical challenges. Written in recognition of Health Sciences courses which require knowledge of statistical literacy, this book guides the reader to an understanding of why, as well as how and when to use statistics. It explores: How data relates to information, and how information relates to knowledge How to use statistics to distinguish information from disinformation The importance of probability, in statistics and in life That inferential statistics allow us to infer from samples to populations, and how useful such inferences can be How to appropriately apply and interpret statistical measures of difference and association How qualitative and quantitative methods differ, and when it’s appropriate to use each The special statistical needs of the health sciences, and some especially health science relevant statistics The vital importance of computers in the statistical analysis of data, and gives an overview of the most commonly used analyses Real-life local examples of health statistics are presented, e.g. A study conducted at the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, University of Utah School of Medicine, explored whether there might be a systematic bias affecting the results of genetic specimen tests, which could affect their generalizability. Reader-friendly writing style t-tests/ ANOVA family of inferential statistics all use variants of the same basic formula Learning Objectives at the start of each chapter and Quick Reference Summaries at the end of each chapter provide the reader with a scope of the content within each chapter.

Er beschreibt die Erfolge und Misserfolge der zum Teil unbekannten Attentate, benennt Opfer, Täter und Verantwortliche und fragt, welchen Preis Staat und Gesellschaft in Israel für ihre Sicherheit bezahlen.
