About this book

This book presents various recently developed and traditional statistical techniques, which are increasingly being applied in social science research. The social sciences cover diverse phenomena arising in society, the economy and the environment, some of which are too complex to allow concrete statements; some cannot be defined by direct observations or measurements; some are culture- (or region-) specific, while others are generic and common. Statistics, being a scientific method – as distinct from a ‘science’ related to any one type of phenomena – is used to make inductive inferences regarding various phenomena. The book addresses both qualitative and quantitative research (a combination of which is essential in social science research) and offers valuable supplementary reading at an advanced level for researchers.

Bikas Kumar Sinha was affiliated to the Indian Statistical Institute (ISI), Kolkata, India for more than 30 years until his retirement in 2011. He has travelled extensively within USA and Europe for collaborative research and teaching assignments. He has more than 140 research articles published in peer-reviewed journals and almost 100 research collaborators worldwide. His research interests cover a wide range of theoretical and applied statistics. He has co-authored three volumes on Optimal Designs in Springer’s Lecture Notes Series in Statistics (Vol. 54 in 1989, Vol. 163 in 2002 and Vol. 1028 in 2014) and another volume on theory and applications of Optimal Covariate Designs, also published by Springer (2015).
