Description
Fundamental Statistics for the Social, Behavioral, and Health Sciences presents instructional material in a clear, concise way and features exercises that get students thinking about how to use statistics in applied settings.

The text opens with an introduction to descriptive statistics which covers frequency distribution, central tendency, and variability. The chapters that follow take students through an introductory journey into inferential statistics.

While many standard texts in the discipline overload students with information, Fundamental Statistics for the Social, Behavioral, and Health Sciences strategically presents information that is enhanced with clear examples and graphs. Rather than relying on memorized examples, students learn to apply what they learn to a variety of situations. The book includes step-by-step instructions on using IBM’s Statistical Package for Social Sciences, so there is no need to purchase a separate text to master it.
