Neil J. Salkind’s best-selling Statistics for People Who (Think They) Hate Statistics has been helping ease student anxiety around an often intimidating subject since it first published in 2000. Now the bestselling SPSS and Excel versions are joined by a first edition of the text for use with the R software. New co-author Leslie A. Shaw carries forward Neil’s signature humorous, personable, and informative approach. The text guides students through various statistical procedures, beginning with descriptive statistics, correlation, and graphical representation of data, and ending with inferential techniques and analysis of variance.

Features and benefits:

· Lots of support for getting started with R: Included are two introductory chapters on R and on R Studio, plus an appendix on other R packages and resource sites.

· Step-by-step demonstrations of each statistical procedure in R: The authors show how to import the dataset, enter the syntax to run the test, and understand the output.

· Additional resources make it easy to transition to this text, and to R: Code and datasets are available on an accompanying website, which also includes screencast R tutorial videos for students, and PowerPoint slides and additional test questions for instructors.

Övrig information

Neil J. Salkind received his PhD in human development from the University of Maryland, and after teaching for 35 years at the University of Kansas, he was Professor Emeritus in the Department of Psychology and Research in Education, where he collaborated with colleagues and work with students. His early interests were in the area of childrens cognitive development, and after research in the areas of cognitive style and (what was then known as) hyperactivity, he was a postdoctoral fellow at the University of North Carolinas Bush Center for Child and Family Policy. His work then changed direction to focus on child and family policy, specifically the impact of alternative forms of public support on various child and family outcomes. He delivered more than 150 professional papers and presentations; written more than 100 trade and textbooks; and is the author of Statistics for People Who (Think They) Hate Statistics (SAGE), Theories of Human Development (SAGE), and Exploring Research (Prentice Hall). He has edited several encyclopedias, including the Encyclopedia of Human Development, the Encyclopedia of Measurement and Statistics, and the Encyclopedia of Research Design. He was editor of Child Development Abstracts and Bibliography for 13 years. He lived in Lawrence, Kansas, where he liked to read, swim with the River City Sharks, work as the proprietor and sole employee of big boy press, bake brownies (see for the recipe), and poke around old Volvos and old houses.

Leslie A. Shaw received her PhD in psychology from the University of Kansas, specifically in quantitative psychology. During graduate school, she worked on a variety of projects from university class enrollment, alumni donations, community policing, and self-determination. She also taught statistical computing labs and introductory statistics in a team-teaching format. The self-determination research led to more opportunities at the Beach Center on Disabilities and Kansas University Center on Developmental Disabilities to contribute to research on the Supports Intensity Scale, both adult and child versions, and the Self-Determination Inventory: Self Report. After graduation, she held a postdoctoral position at the Kansas University Center on Developmental Disabilities, where she also taught a class each semester in the quantitative psychology program. She is now a research associate at the Yang-Tan Institute on Employment and Disability in the ILR School at Cornell University. She has coauthored more than 20 articles to date, and she serves as a statistical consultant for the journal Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities.
