Statistical methods for the social sciences. Home About Help Search. Chapter 16 includes new sections on longitudinal data analysis and multilevel hierarchical models.
Advanced topics such as regression and ANOVA emphasize interpreting output from computer packages rather than complex computing formulas. Such sequences are commonly required of social science graduate students in sociology, political abd, and psychology.
The book helps in this Showing all editions for ‘Statistical methods for the social sciences’. The fourth edition has an even stronger emphasis on concepts and applications, with greater attention to “real data” both in the examples and exercises. It has met those expectations The mathematics is still downplayed, in finnlay probability, which is all too often a stumbling block for students. The author, in this new edition, uses the symbol se for estimated standard errors, rather than the notation of sigma-hat agersti subscript having the estimator symbol.
The author is successful in his goal of editioj statistical methods in a style that emphasized their concepts and their application to the social sciences rather than the mathematics and computational details behind them.

On the other hand, the text is not a cookbook. Emphasis on concepts, rather than computing formulas. By “modern”, I mean that it is model rather than test oriented, that it gives heavy emphasis to confidence intervals and p-values rather than using arbitrary levels of significance, and that it eschews computational formulae. The presentation of computationally complex methods, such as regression, emphasizes interpretation of software output rather than the formulas for snd the analysis.
