Guide to Practical Statistics

This book is intended to make social science researchers aware of the statistical methodologies used to analyse research data. This book is not intended to make the reader an expert in the underlying theoretical statistical methodology. Almost no formulas are used. Each methodology is described so that the reader can understand the technique's applicability in a practical research situation.  Emphasis is placed on the basic statistical assumptions underlying the various statistical techniques, the type of data required and where those techniques are most often used.
