Overview

Statistics for Business and Economics, 7/e, is the tool students need to help them become informed business decision makers in the twenty-first century. Important statistical ideas and techniques are presented within the context of real-life business situations. The reader is challenged to think critically about problems and to employ one of the many technological tools available - including EXCEL, SPSS, SAS, or Minitab - to reach an informed, well-presented conclusion. Exciting new problem-solving oriented features of the book include: Statistics in Action - boxes in each chapter examine high-profile business, economics, government, and entertainment issues with questions to motivate thought and discussion; Showcases - six extensive, real-business cases present background information and guidelines for performing a statistical analysis using data files contained on the enclosed data disk. The student gains hands-on experience in preparing a professional document to present the results of the analysis and to draw conclusions based on the data; and Internet Lab - six labs instruct the student in retrieving and analyzing raw data downloaded from the Internet.
