In Using Statistical Methods, Soleman Abu-Bader detects and addresses the gaps between the research and data analysis of the classroom environment and the practitioner's office. This book not only guides social scientists through different tests, but also provides students and researchers alike with information that will help them in their own practice. With focus on the purpose, rationale, and assumptions made by each statistical test, and a plethora of research examples that clearly display their applicability and function in real-world practice, Professor Abu-Bader creates a step-by-step description of the process needed to clearly organize, choose a test or statistical technique, analyze, interpret, and report research findings.

The book presents an introduction to statistical methods for students majoring in social science disciplines. No previous knowledge of statistics is assumed, and mathematical background is assumed to be minimal (lowest-level high-school algebra). The book contains sufficient material for a two-semester sequence of courses. Such sequences are commonly required of social science graduate students in sociology, political science, and psychology. Students in geography, anthropology, journalism, and speech also are sometimes required to take at least one statistics course. Datasets and other resources (where applicable) for this book are available here.

This unique volume addresses the inadequacies of basic statistical methods that standard textbooks tend to ignore. The author introduces new procedures with accompanying tables that illustrate the practicality of the methods. Concentrating on basic experimental designs that are central to research in the social sciences, Wilcox describes new nonparametric techniques, two-way ANOVA designs, and new results related to the analysis of covariance and repeated measure design. This book serves as the ideal reference and supplement to standard texts by making the statistical advances of the last thirty years accessible to graduate students and researchers.

Popular in previous editions, this Third Edition continues to help build students' confidence and ability in doing statistical analysis by slowly moving from concepts that require little computational work to those that require more. Author R. Mark Sirkin once again demonstrates how statistics can be used so that students come to appreciate their usefulness rather than fear them. Statistics for the Social Sciences emphasizes the analysis and interpretation of data to give students a feel for how data interpretation is related to the methods by which the information was obtained.

The aspects of this text which we believe are novel, at least in degree, include: an effort to motivate different sections with practical examples and an empirical orientation; an effort to intersperse several easily motivated examples throughout the book and to maintain some continuity in these examples; and the extensive use of Monte Carlo simulations to demonstrate particular aspects of the problems and estimators being considered. In terms of material being presented, the unique aspects include the first chapter which attempts to address the use of empirical methods in the social sciences, the seventh chapter which considers models with discrete dependent variables and unobserved variables. Clearly these last two topics in particular are quite advanced--more advanced than material that is currently available on the subject. These last two topics are also currently experiencing rapid development and are not adequately described in most other texts.

Do your students lack confidence in handling quantitative work? Do they get confused about how to enter statistical data on SAS and SPSS programs? This Second Edition of Mark Sirkin's popular textbook is the solution for these dilemmas. The book progresses from concepts that require little computational work to the more demanding. It emphasizes utilization so that students appreciate the usefulness of statistics and shows how the interpretation of data is related to the methods by which data was obtained. The author includes coverage of the scientific method, levels of measurement and the interpretation of tables.
