The SPSS Guide to Data Analysis for Release 4
In this book, we consider how to proceed from individual observations to the whole. There are many ways in which the fragments may be assembled, and these can result in different views of the whole. Statistics books differ in what parts of the assembly process they emphasize. This book tries to give students the skills that they need to become informed consumers or producers of statistical information. Therefore, this book emphasizes what the statistical process is all about; how to conduct studies, what the results mean, and what can be said about the whole from the pieces.
