Cited by more than 300 scholars, Statistical Reasoning in the Behavioral Sciences continues to provide streamlined resources and easy-to-understand information on statistics in the behavioral sciences and related fields, including psychology, education, human resources management, and sociology.
The sixth edition includes new information about the use of computers in statistics and offers screenshots of IBM SPSS (formerly SPSS) menus, dialog boxes, and output in selected chapters without sacrificing any of the conceptual logic and the statistical formulas needed to facilitate understanding. The example problems have been updated to reflect more current topics (e.g., text messaging while driving, violence in the media). The latest research and new photos have been integrated throughout the text to make the material more accessible. With these changes, students and professionals in the behavioral sciences will develop an understanding of statistical logic and procedures, the properties of statistical devices, and the importance of the assumptions underlying statistical tools.
