Fundamentals of Statistics covers topics on the introduction, fundamentals, and science of statistics. The book discusses the collection, organization and representation of numerical data; elementary probability; the binomial Poisson distributions; and the measures of central tendency. The text describes measures of dispersion for measuring the spread of a distribution; continuous distributions for measuring on a continuous scale; the properties and use of normal distribution; and tests involving the normal or student's ‘t’ distributions. The use of control charts for sample means; the ranges and fraction defective; the chi-squared distribution; the F distribution; and the bivariate distributions are also considered. The book deals with the idea of mathematical expectation and its relationship with mean, variance, and covariance, as well as weighted averages, death rates, and time series. Students studying for advanced level education or higher national certificates in Mechanical or Electrical Engineering, Mathematics, Chemistry, Biology, or Pharmacy, as well as university students taking such courses will find the book invaluable.

There is a vast need for statistical analysis and applications in health care administration. However, students typically have weak quantitative skills. Yet students typically come armed with weak quantitative skills and a poor understanding of statistics. Statistics are a key element of many health administration courses - financial management, quantitative methods etc. but texts in this area presume skills in this area often leaving students adrift. Statistics in Health Administration Kept Simple covers essential fundamentals in a user-friendly way with a strong emphasis on practical applica

A statistics book specifically geared towards the education community. This book gives educators the statistical knowledge and skills necessary in everyday classroom teaching, in running schools, and in professional development pursuits. It emphasizes conceptual development with an engaging style and clear exposition.
This book presents basic aspects for a theory of statistics with fuzzy data, together with a set of practical applications. Theories of fuzzy logic and of random closed sets are used as basic ingredients in building statistical concepts and procedures in the context of imprecise data, including coarse data analysis. The book aims at motivating statisticians to examine fuzzy statistics to enlarge the domain of applicability of statistics in general.

Professionals in all areas – business; government; thephysical, life, and social sciences; engineering; medicine, etc.– benefit from using statistical experimental design tobetter understand their worlds and then use that understanding toimprove the products, processes, and programs they are responsiblefor. This book aims to provide the practitioners of tomorrow with amemorable, easy to read, engaging guide to statistics andexperimental design. This book uses examples, drawn from a variety of established texts,and embeds them in a business or scientific context, seasoned witha dash of humor, to emphasize the issues and ideas that led to theexperiment and the what-do-we-do-next? steps after theexperiment. Graphical data displays are emphasized as means ofdiscovery and communication and formulas are minimized, with afocus on interpreting the results that software produce. The roleof subject-matter knowledge, and passion, is also illustrated. Theexamples do not require specialized knowledge, and the lessons theycontain are transferrable to other contexts. Fundamentals of Statistical Experimental Design and Analysisintroduces the basic elements of an experimental design, and thebasic concepts underlying statistical analyses. Subsequent chaptersaddress the following families of experimental designs: Completely Randomized designs, with single or multipletreatment factors, quantitative or qualitative Randomized Block designs Latin Square designs Split-Unit designs Repeated Measures designs Robust designs Optimal designs Written in an accessible, student-friendly style, this book issuitable for a general audience and particularly for thoseprofessionals seeking to improve and apply their understanding ofexperimental design.
As the world becomes increasingly complex, that complexity tends to be reflected in statistical approaches to things that comprise our everyday experiences. Many people now find that understanding statistics is a skill they need to succeed in the many disciplines and occupations that rely on data and numerical information. While they may not need computational skills, rigorous mathematics, or the ability to actually design studies themselves, they do need some background in the concepts essential to understanding and intelligently applying common statistical procedures and ideas. Fundamentals of Applied Statistics and Surveys provides that background. Heavily focused on conceptual content, its approach is discursive rather than computational. The author emphasizes the more easily understandable, and more generally useful, techniques most frequently encountered by those in careers other than statistics. Aimed at users of statistical information, rather than producers of it, Fundamentals of Applied Statistics and Surveys provides an accessible treatment of basic concepts and methods without involving the reader in extensive mathematics or complicated computations.
