Data Driven Statistical Methods is designed for use either as a text book at the undergraduate level, as a source book providing material and suggestions for teachers wishing to incorporate some of its features into more general courses, and also as a self-instruction manual for applied statisticians seeking a simple introduction to many important practical concepts that use the 'data driven' rather than the 'model driven' approach.
