Statistical Parameters is a unique new guide to current statistical methods and research. Based on a series of interdisciplinary lectures for users of statistical methods in research and development, this book provides insights into data acquisition and statistical interpretation.
The author discusses practical problems in a consistent methodological framework and offers advice that translates into solutions for common problems. Designed as a graduate-level text for statistics and research methods courses, Statistical Parameters is also a good reference for mathematically literate researchers who want to update their research skills as well as their knowledge of current research methods.
Although the topics it discusses are elementary, this is in no way an elementary statistics book.
