An Insight into Statistics is a comprehensive introduction to probability theory and statistical methods in the social sciences. The book forms the basis for empirical studies within disciplines such as economics, sociology and political science. The practical approach is illustrated by a systematic review of all phases of a study – from sampling and data collection to processing and interpretation.
Great importance is attached to explaining the relationship between probability theory and statistical methods, and the book presents recurring examples of empirical studies that underpin the theoretical material and make it directly applicable in practice. Each chapter ends with assignments that test your understanding of both the theory and the practical methods.
