In addition to showing how the statistical computations can be done by hand, the book now shows readers how to perform the computations using SAS and SPSS programs - and how to read and interpret the outputs from the computer runs too; expanded coverage on graphical display of data, significance testing, and statistical power; new formula boxes at the ends of chapters offer readers a summary of the formulas so that they can review what they learned in the chapter; and broader variety of examples and exercises (both basic and applied research) from a range of the social science disciplines, including sociology, political science, communications, psychology, education, social work, management, and health.
