Applied Statistics – for Finance and Economics is a practical textbook that explores the use of statistics and statistical concepts in the financial sector. Unlike traditional statistics books, the calculations are performed on computers, usually in Excel and occasionally with add-ons.
The book provides an excellent insight into data processing methods and how to draw statistically justified conclusions from them. The focus is on the models and tools used in a range of different statistical tests, with particular attention paid to the practical use and interpretation of hypothesis testing and other techniques. Applied Statistics – for Finance and Economics is ideal for a range of financial study programmes, but also for economics and social science programmes with a statistics component.
