Focused on principles and techniques, this book provides a conceptual, intuitive approach to applied statistics that replaces proofs and derivations with examples and illustrations. The focus throughout is on the usefulness of statistics and content is organized according to statistical applications, not statistical assumptions. Emphasizes informed applications of statistics — but provides a balance of applications and theory. Explores the statistical procedures that are most useful in the social and behavioral sciences — with a focus on essential concepts and techniques needed in order to begin to evaluate data and read research literature in the behavior sciences. Groups statistics by purpose, not assumption. Demonstrates appropriate applications as well as computational mechanics and interpretation. Shows that statistics is not the study of numbers, but the study of people, cities, and the concerns of the everyday world.

FUNDAMENTAL STATISTICS FOR THE BEHAVIORAL SCIENCES focuses on providing the context of statistics in behavioral research, while emphasizing the importance of looking at data before jumping into a test. This practical approach provides readers with an understanding of the logic behind the statistics, so they understand why and how certain methods are used--rather than simply carry out techniques by rote. Readers move beyond number crunching to discover the meaning of statistical results and appreciate how the statistical test to be employed relates to the research questions posed by an experiment. An abundance of real data and research studies provide a real-life perspective and help you understand concepts as you learn about the analysis of data.
