Overview

Although many graduate students and researchers have had course work in statistics, they sometimes find themselves stumped in proceeding with a particular data analysis question. In fact, statistics is often taught as a lesson in mathematics as opposed to a strategy for answering questions about world[?], leaving beginning researchers at a loss for how to proceed. In these situations, it is common to turn to a statistical expert, the "go to" person when questions regarding appropriate data analysis emerge. Your Statistical Consultant is an authentic alternative resource for describing, explaining, and making recommendations regarding thorny or confusing statistical issues. Written to be responsive to a wide range of inquiries and levels of expertise, this book is flexibly organized so readers can either read it sequentially or turn directly to the sections that correspond to their concerns and questions.

Editorial Reviews

CHOICE
This book is valuable for its interpretation of alternative approaches to traditional statistical inferences... The second edition is noticeably updated and clearly replaces the earlier 1999 publication... Just opening it gives a clear road map with key points in italics and key terms in boldface. The links to statistical websites are gems. This textbook supplement is ideal for advanced students, practitioners, and faculty in the social sciences. Summing Up: Highly recommended.
Booknews
Written to address a wide range of statistical inquiries and levels of expertise, this volume is organized into four sections and may be read sequentially or used as a reference. Chapter headings within the sections are framed as questions and followed by detailed answers, including a conceptual explanation of the topic as well as explanation of appropriate techniques.
