Introductory Statistics is an elementary non-mathematical manual on statistics and provides a connected account of the more common statistical tests. It is divided into two parts: the first part introduces the reader to elementary applications of statistical methods and the line of reasoning involved in their use, and the second part covers elementary parts of statistical theory and more advanced applications.
This book consists of nine chapters and opens with a discussion on the presentation of sets of measurements, touching on topics such as sampling, grouping, measures of spread, and standard deviation. The following chapters deal with normal distribution and its applications; comparison of two or several sets of measurements; attributes and comparison of proportions; and interrelations of sets of measurements. Concomitant observations are also considered, along with transformations and non-normal distributions. The final chapter is devoted to sampling methods, including the ratio method and the regression method.
This monograph is written primarily for students of statistics and aims to help research workers gain a fuller understanding of the methods used in the analysis of their results.
