Overview

Statisticians know that the clean data sets that appear in textbook problems have little to do with real-life industry data. To better prepare their students for all types of statistical careers, academic statisticians now strive to use data sets from real-life statistical problems. This book contains 20 case studies that use actual data sets that have not been simplified for classroom use. Each case study is a collaboration between statisticians from academe and from business, industry, or government. This book is the result of a collaborative workshop of statisticians focusing on academic-industrial partnerships. The cases come from a wide variety of application areas, including biology/environment, medical and health care, pharmaceutical, marketing and survey research, and manufacturing.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Presents 20 statistical case studies for the classroom using data sets that have not been simplified for classroom use; that is, they retain the complexity of real-life statistical problems. The studies are collaborations between statisticians from academe, business, industry, and government, and come from areas such as biology, the environment, medical and health care, marketing, survey research, and manufacturing. The book includes two floppy disks containing all the data sets for each case, in MAC and PC formats. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
