Overview


Statistics play a major role in psychological research. However, there is no text which bridges the gap between the very general introductory books and the highly technical research-level studies. Making Sense of Statistics in Psychology fills this need, with the added advantages of examples and data sets relevant to actual problems in behavioral science; an emphasis on graphical presentation; and a focus on computer methods rather than basic arithmetic. A unique feature is the collection of challenging data sets, the majority from actual psychological research. Many of these data sets are also stored on the disk that accompanies the book, thus allowing students to run both the analyses described and their own attempts at extending them. It is also ideal for more experienced researchers who want a quick reference or refresher on statistics.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"This text coves a range of advanced statistical techniques and is intended to be accessible to postgraduate or advanced undergraduate psychology students. The variety of techniques covered is rare for a book this size and intended audience. Everitt aims to provide a simple explanation of each type of analysis by looking at its application in particular cases. . .The book comes with a free disk containing the data used in its examples which are from real psychological studies. These examples are valuable teaching aids in their own right and a case could be made for buying the book for the disk alone. What is good about Making Sense of Statistics is it encourages readers to think about their data and provides alternative analyses for them to consider. . .I think the book deserves to be considered as the main text for methodology courses aimed at postgraduate psychology students."--British Journal of Mathematical and Statistical Psychology
