Nonparametric Statistics for Social and Behavioral Sciences

Book description

Description:
Incorporating a hands-on pedagogical approach, Nonparametric Statistics for Social and Behavioral Sciences presents the concepts, principles, and methods used in performing many nonparametric procedures. It also demonstrates practical applications of the most common nonparametric procedures using IBM's SPSS software.

This text is the only current nonparametric book written specifically for students in the behavioral and social sciences. Emphasizing sound research designs, appropriate statistical analyses, and accurate interpretations of results, the text:


Explains a conceptual framework for each statistical procedure
Presents examples of relevant research problems, associated research questions, and hypotheses that precede each procedure
Details SPSS paths for conducting various analyses
Discusses the interpretations of statistical results and conclusions of the research


With minimal coverage of formulas, the book takes a nonmathematical approach to nonparametric data analysis procedures and shows students how they are used in research contexts. Each chapter includes examples, exercises, and SPSS screen shots illustrating steps of the statistical procedures and resulting output.
