Statistics: A Tool for Social Research, Fourth Canadian Edition, (PDF) helps to construct and develop the skills necessary for social science majors to become statistically literate―computational competence, appreciation of statistics, and the ability to read professional social science literature―from a uniquely Canadian perspective. To do so, the textbook provides a comprehensive yet exceptionally accessible and reader-friendly discussion of statistics appropriate for students with varying mathematical skill levels, ranging from those who battle statistical “anxiety” to those adept at math. The textbook introduces the fundamental statistics concepts in an easy-to-follow, step-by-step process, and equally stresses hand-based calculation and interpretation of statistics.
In the textbook Statistics: A Tool for Social Research 4E (Canadian), students learn to use and interpret statistics in a variety of settings, with most examples, demonstrations, and applications of statistics intended for a diversity of Canadian social issues and social science disciplines, including sociology, social work, public administration, criminology, and criminal justice, political science, and gerontology. By providing a solid grounding in both traditional formulas and the use of the latest SPSS statistical software package, Healey and Prus help college students to master critical statistical concepts and hone the skills they will need to succeed as professionals in a social science field–or simply to become “statistically literate,” intelligent consumers of social research.
