Statistical Methods for the Social Sciences Book Review:

When I undertook the first edition of this book my goal was to introduce statistical methods in a style that emphasized their concepts and their application to the social sciences rather than the mathematics and computational details behind them. This fourth edition has an even stronger emphasis on concepts and applications, with greater attention to "real data" both in the examples and exercises.

Statistical Methods for Social Scientists Book Review:

The aspects of this text which we believe are novel, at least in degree, include: an effort to motivate different sections with practical examples and an empirical orientation; an effort to intersperse several easily motivated examples throughout the book and to maintain some continuity in these examples; and the extensive use of Monte Carlo simulations to demonstrate particular aspects of the problems and estimators being considered. In terms of material being presented, the unique aspects include the first chapter which attempts to address the use of empirical methods in the social sciences, the seventh chapter which considers models with discrete dependent variables and unobserved variables. Clearly these last two topics in particular are quite advanced--more advanced than material that is currently available on the subject. These last two topics are also currently experiencing rapid development and are not adequately described in most other texts.

Statistical Analysis for the Social Sciences Book Review:

People are bombarded with statistical data every day, but not many have had training in how to interpret or analyze this information. Kurtz's accessible writing style provides a basic yet sophisticated introduction to understanding and analyzing statistical applications. The book gives careful attention to the flow of ideas and concepts so there is a stream of logic which flows throughout, adding to the book's readability. The book begins with a discussion of methods for describing the distribution of a variable. The introduction of probability avoids the traditional discussion of the basic laws of probability, providing instead an explanation which can be directly applied in the everyday use of statistical probability. The discussion of the book is focused primarily on the relationship of probability to outcomes. Sociologists, psychologists, social workers, political scientists, educators, as well as anyone who wants to analyze data.

Statistical Methods in Social Science Research Book Review:

This book presents various recently developed and traditional statistical techniques, which are increasingly being applied in social science research. The social sciences cover diverse phenomena arising in society, the economy and the environment, some of which are too complex to allow concrete statements; some cannot be defined by direct observations or measurements; some are culture- (or region-) specific, while others are generic and common. Statistics, being a scientific method – as distinct from a ‘science’ related to any one type of phenomena – is used to make inductive inferences regarding various phenomena. The book addresses both qualitative and quantitative research (a combination of which is essential in social science research) and offers valuable supplementary reading at an advanced level for researchers.

Quantitative Methods for the Social Sciences Book Review:

This textbook offers an essential introduction to survey research and quantitative methods. Building on the premise that statistical methods need to be learned in a practical fashion, the book guides students through the various steps of the survey research process and helps to apply those steps toward a real example. In detail, the textbook introduces students to the four pillars of survey research and quantitative analysis: (1) the importance of survey research, (2) preparing a survey, (3) conducting a survey and (4) analyzing a survey. Students are shown how to create their own questionnaire based on some theoretically derived hypotheses to achieve empirical findings for a solid dataset. Lastly, they use said data to test their hypotheses in a bivariate and multivariate realm. The book explains the theory, rationale and mathematical foundations of these tests. In addition, it provides clear instructions on how to conduct the tests in SPSS and Stata. Given the breadth of its coverage, the textbook is suitable for introductory statistics, survey research or quantitative methods classes in the social sciences.
