Description

Unlike other advanced statistical texts, this book combines the theory and practice behind a number of statistical techniques which students of the social sciences need to evaluate, analyze, and test their research hypotheses.

Each chapter discusses the purpose, rationale, and assumptions for using each statistical test, rather than focusing on the memorization of formulas. The tests are further elucidated throughout the text by real examples of analysis. Of particular value to students is the book's detailed discussion of how to utilize SPSS to run each test, read its output, interpret, and write the results.

Advanced & Multivariate Statistical Methods for Social Science Research is an indispensable resource for students of disciplines as varied as social work, nursing, public health, psychology, and education.
