Suitable for upper undergraduates or graduate students
Statistical theory and formulas are explained in clear language without bogging you down in mathematical fine points
You will be told each step of the way, not only how to use Excel, but also why you are doing each step – so you can learn the techniques to apply Excel beyond this book
You will learn both how to write statistical formulas and how to use drop-down menus to have Excel create formulas for you
Includes 164 color screen shots so you can be sure you are performing Excel steps correctly
Each chapter includes specific objectives for each concept so you know the purpose of the Excel steps
Each chapter presents key steps needed to solve practical problems using Excel. In addition, three practice problems at the end of each chapter enable you to test your new knowledge. Answers to these problems appear in Appendix A
Practical examples of problems are taken from several functional areas of the social sciences, including political science, sociology, anthropology, education, and psychology
A “Practice Test” is given in Appendix B to test your knowledge at the end of the book. Answers appear in Appendix C
This is the first book to show the capabilities of Microsoft Excel to teach social science statistics effectively. It is a step-by-step exercise-driven guide for students and practitioners who need to master Excel to solve practical problems. If understanding statistics isn’t your strongest suit, you are not especially mathematically-inclined, or if you are wary of computers, this is the right book for you.
Excel, a widely available computer program for students and managers, is also an effective teaching and learning tool for quantitative analyses in social science courses. Its powerful computational ability and graphical functions make learning statistics much easier than in years past. However, Excel 2007 for Social Science Statistics: A Guide to Solving Practical Problems is the first book to capitalize on these improvements by teaching students and managers how to apply Excel to statistical techniques necessary in their courses and work.
Each chapter explains statistical formulas and directs the reader to use Excel commands to solve specific, easy-to-understand problems. Practice problems are provided at the end of each chapter with their solutions in an appendix. Separately, there is a full Practice Test (with answers in an Appendix) that allows readers to test what they have learned.
