9780761912736: Dictionary of Statistics & Methodology: A Nontechnical Guide for the Social Sciences

Popular in its first edition, Dictionary of Statistics and Methodology will help students get through a difficult journal article or passage. This useful dictionary has been revised with 600 additional new terms and definitions compiled from readers′ requests and suggestions! As you′ve come to appreciate in the first edition, the Second Edition of the Dictionary of Statistics and Methodology contains many examples and definitions written in ordinary English. Author W. Paul Vogt pays special attention to terms that most often prevent educated general readers from understanding journal articles and books by emphasizing concepts over calculations. The level of explanation varies with the simplicity or complexity of the term defined so that more detail is offered for basic terms (for more introductory readers) while less is used to explain more advanced concepts for readers who have more background.

"One of the more interesting nuggets to fly off the Sage press in recent months has been this valuable little book. It is, in fact, a dictionary. Statistical and methodological terms are alphabetized, with brief definitions presented. The language in the text is concise and definitions are often presented with clear examples. Finally, the book realistically lives up to its title as being a ‘non-technical guide.’"
