About the Book

An Introduction to Statistics for Canadian Social Scientists is a ground-up Canadian text that establishes a solid foundation in statistics for first-time students of the discipline. Ideal for second- or third-year introductory level statistics courses in sociology, the text uses Canadian scholarship and examples to teach the universal language of statistics. A "Knowledge-Through-Discovery" approach encourages students to learn by doing. Lab exercises are designed to bridge the gap between theory and practice. The text includes appendices with SPSS and STATA lab manuals which will help students understand the main statistics software packages used in the social sciences. An overview of basic mathematics is also included for students who may be uncomfortable or out-of-practice with math. This book is a phenomenal resource for students wanting to expand their social science research skills to include statistical analysis.
