Part of the best-selling David Moore introductory statistics textbook family, The Practice of Statistics for Business and Economics uses a similar, accessible approach found in The Basic Practice of Statistics but applies to the world of business and economics.
With The Practice of Statistics for Business and Economics, instructors can help students develop a working knowledge of data production and interpretation in a business and economics context, giving them the practical tools they need to make data-informed, real-world business and economic decisions from the first day of class.
PSBE examines the nature of modern statistical practice at a level suitable for beginners. Focus not only on the analysis of data and the traditional topics of probability and inference but also on the sources and production of data.
PSBE uses real examples and exercises from business and economics to illustrate and enforce key ideas. Students learn the technique of leastsquares regression and how to interpret the regression slope. But they also learn the conceptual ties between regression and correlation, the importance of looking for influential observations.
PSBE is aware of current developments both in statistical science and in teaching statistics. Brief optional "Beyond the Basics" sections give quick overviews of topics such as density estimation, the bootstrap, big data, relative risk, regression trees, and meta-analysis.
Learning objectives. At the beginning of each section in every chapter, learning objectives are designed to give an overview of what the students are expected to be able to do when they complete their study of the section. Students are not only expected to learn basic concepts; they are expected to acquire the skills needed to apply these concepts in realistic situations.
Increased emphasis on software. Software displays have been updated and are given additional prominence. Carefully selected instances of output can be switched to match whatever software the student is using when working in our SaplingPlus e-book. In addition, video links are supplied at various places in each chapter so students can see how specific analyses are performed using Excel, JMP, Minitab, and R.
Exercises and examples. Over 60% of the exercises and examples are
new or revised! The business or economics relevance of the exercises are clearer than ever for students.
Examining distributions. Similarities and differences in methods for
categorical data and quantitative data given additional emphasis, and
concerns of reviewers on particular issues have been addressed (Chapter 1).
Examining relationships. Material in the Introduction and the first
section of Chapter 2 have been reorganized and a brief treatment of
covariance has been added.
