Contents:
What is statistics? -- Describing data: frequency tables, frequency distributions, and graphic presentation -- Describing data: numerical measures -- Describing data: displaying and exploring data -- A survey of probability concepts -- Discrete probability distributions -- Continuous probability distributions -- Sampling methods and the central limit theorem -- Estimation and confidence intervals -- One-sample tests of hypothesis -- Two-sample tests of hypothesis -- Analysis of variance -- Linear regression and correlation -- Multiple regressions and correlation analysis -- Index numbers -- Time series and forcasting -- Nonparametric methods: chi-square applications -- Nonparametric methods: Analysis of ranked data -- Statistical process control and quality management -- An introduction to decission theory
Summary: "Lind/14e is a perennial market best seller due to its comprehensive coverage of statistical concepts and methods delivered in a student friendly, step-by-step format. The text presents concepts clearly and succinctly with a conversational writing style. All statistical concepts are illustrated with solved applied examples immediately upon introduction. Self reviews and exercises for each section, and review sections for groups of chapters also support the student learning steps. Modern computing applications (Excel, Minitab, and MegaStat for Excel) are introduced, and the text maintains a focus on presenting statistics concepts as applied to business. The fourteenth edition continues as a 'students' text with increased emphasis on interpretation of data and results." --
