The book also fully meets the NASPAA standards for methodology in masters programs in public affairs and administration. In an easy-to-read, applied format, the book focuses on practical problems in the public management arena, and its step-by-step explanations help you replace anxiety about statistics with an appreciation for powerful quantitative techniques. Using problems, exercises, and examples taken from the public administration field, you, as a public manager, will see how useful statistics can be - now and in the future.

Editorial Reviews

This text/CD-ROM surveys statistical techniques commonly used in the behavioral and social sciences, especially psychology and education, for intermediate-level students with no previous courses in statistics or in mathematics beyond high-school algebra. Emphasis is on conceptual understanding. The CD-ROM contains data for problems. This fifth edition integrates the American Psychological Association's position on null hypothesis testing, includes new material on nonparametric statistics and logistic regression, and features expanded use of definitional rather than computational formulae. There is greater emphasis on computer solutions in this edition. The author is chair and professor of psychology at the University of Vermont. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
