In this textbook for an introductory statistics course for social science majors, Szafran (sociology, Stephen F. Austin U.) presents statistical techniques routinely appearing in the professional literature of social service professionals. Throughout the text, students will use General Social Survey data from 1980 and 2010 to compare the lives and attitudes of two generations of young people. SPSS is integrated throughout the text with step-by-step explanations, screenshots, tips, and practice problems. Part 1 covers data sets, introduces data analysis and SPSS, and offers a brief introduction to research methods. Part 2 covers descriptive statistics, from frequency tables through multiple regression. Part 3 covers inferential statistics. This section introduces a four-step approach to hypothesis testing, then covers different types of hypothesis tests. The text's two-color layout includes math and research tip boxes and summary charts. A student website offers quizzes. Online resources for teachers include a test bank with multiple-choice, short-answer, simple computational, and output-interpretation questions.
