## StatisticsKEY MESSAGE: TheEleventh Editionof this highly-regarded introductory text emphasizes inference and sound decision-making through its extensive coverage of data collection and analysis. McClave develops statistical thinking and teaches readers to properly assess the credibility of inferences-from the vantage point of both the consumer and the producer. This edition incorporates more exercises and more visual features, such as redesigned end-of-chapter summaries and an increased use of applets. This text assumes a mathematical background of basic algebra. KEY TOPICS: Statistics, Data, and Statistical Thinking; Methods for Describing Sets of Data; Probability; Discrete Random Variables; Continuous Random Variables; Sampling Distributions; Inferences Based on a Single Sample: Estimation with Confidence Intervals; Inferences Based on a Single Sample: Tests of Hypothesis; Inferences Based on a Two Samples: Confidence Intervals and Tests of Hypotheses; Analysis of Variance: Comparing More Than Two Means; Simple Linear Regression; Multiple Regression and Model Building; Categorical Data Analysis; Nonparametric Statistics MARKET: For all readers interested in statistics. |
