Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This dictionary will be an essential reference for every social scientist, presenting nontechnical definitions of statistical and methodological terms used in the social and behavioral sciences. The author pays special attention to terms that most often prevent educated general readers from understanding journal articles and books by emphasizing concepts over calculations and by providing detailed examples after each definition. The level of explanation varies with the simplicity or complexity of the term defined so that more detail is offered for basic terms, while less is used to explain more advanced concepts for readers who have more background.
