Book Author : George Boyhan
Book Publisher : CRC Press

Book Summary :

Practical statistics is a powerful tool used frequently by agricultural researchers and graduate students involved in investigating experimental design and analysis. One of the most widely used statistical analysis software packages for this purpose is Stata. The Stata software program has matured into a user-friendly environment with a wide variety of statistical functions. Agricultural Statistical Data Analysis Using Stata introduces readers to the use of Stata to solve agricultural statistical problems. The book begins with an overview of statistical software and the Stata program. It explains the various windows and menus and describes how they are integrated. The next chapters explore data entry and importing as well as basic output formats and descriptive statistics. The author describes the ever-increasing design complexity and how this is implemented in the software. He reviews one of Stata’s strongest features, which is its programming ability. He also examines post hoc tests as well as Stata’s graphing capabilities. The final chapters provide information on regression analysis, data transformations, and the analyses of non-parametric data. Many agricultural researchers are unprepared for the statistics they will need to use in their profession. Written in an easy-to-read format with screen shots and illustrations, the book is suitable for a wide audience, including beginners in statistics who are new to Stata, as well as more advanced Stata users and those interested in more complex designs.

Book Title : An Introduction to Statistics

Release Date : 2013-01-09
ISBN Code : 9781483321554
Book Author : Kieth A. Carlson
Book Publisher : SAGE Publications
Total Pages : 576

Book Summary :

An Introduction to Statistics is the ideal text for incorporating an active learning approach to the subject of introductory statistics. Authors Kieth A. Carlson and Jennifer R. Winquist carefully explain fundamental statistical concepts in short, easy-to-understand chapters, then use empirically developed workbook activities to both reinforce and expand on these fundamental concepts. These activities are self-correcting so students discover and correct their own misunderstandings early in the learning process. This approach enables students to be responsible for their own learning by helping them to "read with purpose. Based on contemporary memory research (e.g., the testing effect, embedded reading questions), the text is designed to actively engage students while they generate explanations, which leads to better long term retention. It also contains more traditional student aids including carefully developed learning objectives, realistic research scenarios, practice problems, and self-test questions.

Book Publisher : Springer Science & Business Media
Total Pages : 735

Book Summary :

An imaginative introduction to statistics, reorienting the course towards an understanding of statistical thinking and its meaning and use in daily life and work. Gudmund Iversen and Mary Gergen bring their years of experience and insight into teaching the subject, incorporating such innovations and insights as a sustained emphasis on the process of statistical analysis and what statistics can and cannot do as well as careful exposition of the ideas of developing statistical and graphical literacy. In the spirit of contemporary pedagogy and by using technology, the authors break down the traditional barriers of statistical formulas and lengthy computations encountered by students without strong quantitative skills. Further, formulas are grouped at the end of each chapter along with related problems, and, with only algebra as a prerequisite, the book is ideal for students in the liberal arts and the behavioural and social sciences.

Book Summary :

Graphics for Statistics and Data Analysis with R presents the basic principles of sound graphical design and applies these principles to engaging examples using the graphical functions available in R. It offers a wide array of graphical displays for the presentation of data, including modern tools for data visualization and representation. The book considers graphical displays of a single discrete variable, a single continuous variable, and then two or more of each of these. It includes displays and the R code for producing the displays for the dot chart, bar chart, pictographs, stemplot, boxplot, and variations on the quantile-quantile plot. The author discusses nonparametric and parametric density estimation, diagnostic plots for the simple linear regression model, polynomial regression, and locally weighted polynomial regression for producing a smooth curve through data on a scatterplot. The last chapter illustrates visualizing multivariate data with examples using Trellis graphics. Showing how to use graphics to display or summarize data, this text provides best practice guidelines for producing and choosing among graphical displays. It also covers the most effective graphing functions in R. R code is available for download on the book’s website.

Book Summary :

In recent years there has been an explosion of network data – that is, measu- ments that are either of or from a system conceptualized as a network – from se- ingly all corners of science. The combination of an increasingly pervasive interest in scienti c analysis at a systems level and the ever-growing capabilities for hi- throughput data collection in various elds has fueled this trend. Researchers from biology and bioinformatics to physics, from computer science to the information sciences, and from economics to sociology are more and more engaged in the c- lection and statistical analysis of data from a network-centric perspective. Accordingly, the contributions to statistical methods and modeling in this area have come from a similarly broad spectrum of areas, often independently of each other. Many books already have been written addressing network data and network problems in speci c individual disciplines. However, there is at present no single book that provides a modern treatment of a core body of knowledge for statistical analysis of network data that cuts across the various disciplines and is organized rather according to a statistical taxonomy of tasks and techniques. This book seeks to ll that gap and, as such, it aims to contribute to a growing trend in recent years to facilitate the exchange of knowledge across the pre-existing boundaries between those disciplines that play a role in what is coming to be called ‘network science.
