Overview

Now in its third edition, Conceptual Statistics for Beginners emphasizes and facilitates the conceptual understanding of statistics and statistical concepts for the purpose of reading and accurately interpreting research literature. The last two chapters of the book introduce two new concepts. The first concept is type VI error, which is the inconsistency between the statistical procedure and the research question. The final chapter introduces the importance of the concept of "Replicability" vs. statistical significance and effect size.
