Statistical Methods for the Information
By Liwen Vaughan
For most of us, "painless" is not the word that comes
to mind when we think of statistics, but author and educator
Liwen Vaughan wants to change that. In this unique and
useful book, Vaughan clearly explains the statistical
methods used in information science research, focusing
on basic logic rather than mathematical intricacies. Her
emphasis is on the meaning of statistics, when and how
to apply them, and how to interpret the results of statistical
analysis. Through the use of real-world examples, she
shows how statistics can be used to improve services,
make better decisions, and conduct more effective research.
Whether you are doing statistical analysis or simply
need to better understand the statistics you encounter
in professional literature and the media, this book
will be a valuable addition to your personal toolkit.
Includes more than 80 helpful figures and tables, 7
appendices, bibliography, index.
