The Fourth Edition has been carefully revised and updated to reflect current data.

The Sixth Edition of Neil J. Salkind’s best-selling Statistics for People Who (Think They) Hate Statistics promises to ease student anxiety around an often intimidating subject with a humorous, personable, and informative approach. Salkind guides students through various statistical procedures, beginning with descriptive statistics, correlation, and graphical representation of data, and ending with inferential techniques and analysis of variance. New to this edition is an introduction to working with large data sets.

This extensively revised and fully updated second edition is designed as a textbook for M.A. (Education), M.Ed., M.A. (Psychology and Sociology) and for research students pursuing courses in Statistics related to these subjects. It takes into account the present syllabi of various universities and institutes of education across the country. What's New to the Second Edition : Six new chapters added with empha-sis on advanced statistical concepts and techniques such as the following : - Biserial correlation, point biserial correlation, tetrachoric correlation, phi coefficient, partial and multiple correlation. - Transfer of raw scores into standard scores, T, C and Stanine scores. - Non-parametric tests like the McNemar test, Sign test, Wilcoxon test, Median test, U test, Runs test, and KS test. - Analysis of covariance. Some chapters modified and reshuffled to reflect the new emphasis. Entire text thoroughly checked and marked improvements made to bring the topics uptodate.

This Book Covers A Wide Range Of Topics In Statistics With Conceptual Analysis, Mathematical Formulas And Adequate Details In Question-Answer Form. It Furnishes A Comprehensive Overview Of Statistics In A Lucid Manner. The Book Provides Ready-Made Material For All Inquisitive Minds To Help Them Prepare For Any Traditional Or Internal Grading System Examination, Competitions, Interviews, Viva-Voce And Applied Statistics Courses. One Will Not Have To Run From Pillar To Post For Guidance In Statistics. The Answers Are Self-Explanatory. For Objective Type Questions, At Many Places, The Answers Are Given With Proper Hints. Fill-In-The-Blanks Given In Each Chapter Will Enable The Readers To Revise Their Knowledge In A Short Span Of Time.
