Essentials of Social Statistics for a Diverse Society Summary

Essentials of Social Statistics for a Diverse Society by Anna Y. Leon-Guerrero

"Essentials of Social Statistics for a Diverse Society" is a briefer version of the successful "Social Statistics for a Diverse Society" now in its 6th edition. As in the parent text, the context of diversity, illustrated through the use of real data in examples from contemporary social issues, will continue to differentiate this briefer statistics text. Better illustrated with more interesting examples and exercises with a focus on student learning, will set this book apart from its competitors. The book's informal writing style - coupled with the use of real-world examples makes the book more accessible and engaging for students. A focus on race, class, gender and other aspects of social diversity sets the book apart from others in the field and mirrors the major emphasis in the social sciences today. Reading the Research Literature sections in most chapters help students read and interpret statistical information in professional and scholarly publications. Learning Checks within chapters engage students in reviewing key concepts and techniques. Statistics in Practice extended examples show students applications to meaningful social issues. This title is heavily illustrated with many charts, tables and graphs and extensive end of chapter exercise sets.
