Pearson (government, U. of Pennsylvania) offers a textbook on statistics for graduate students and advanced undergraduates in public policy, education, social work, criminology, urban planning, and other related programs. His approach is to provide an understanding of statistics in the real-world environment of policy issues rather than as an abstraction drawn from nonpolicy topics or created to display elements not likely to be found in the real world. Therefore, the problems and examples are from the world students are likely to confront as they begin their professional careers. The author illustrates the significance of solid research design and measurement, appropriate statistical procedures, and how to employ principled and persuasive statistical arguments and presentations to nonacademic audiences.
