Front Cover
W.H. Freeman and Company, 2009 - Mathematics - 843 pages

The Practice of Business Statistics offers a welcome innovation by allowing students to make data-informed, real-world business decisions almost from day one. By discussing data production and interpretation early in the book data analysis can then be used throughout the course. This approach drives home the relevance and usefulness of statistical ideas to the business world from the onset.

About the author (2009)

David S. Moore, Ph.D., is a professor of psychology at Pitzer College and at Claremont Graduate University. He received his doctorate in developmental psychology from Harvard University and did his post-doctoral work at the City University of New York. His work with infants first alerted him to the remarkably complex interplay between nature and nurture in the development of traits, and his views on these subjects have been augmented by his subsequent work in the newly emerging, interdisciplinary fields of developmental cognitive neuroscience and developmental psychobiology.
