Overview

Anthropologists often need to use quantitative methods, but statistics are often seen as impenetrable and difficult. This book offers anthropology and other social science students an easy, step-by-step route through the statistical maze. In clear, simple language, using relevant examples and practice problems, it gives students with a minimal mathematical background a thorough grounding in methodology, together with insight into how and when different methods need to be applied. It will be a 'must-have' for all anthropology and social science students.
