How to Analyze Survey Data
- Arlene Fink - UCLA, Los Angeles, USA
"This is a very basic overview of statistical terms and tests with which any persons conducting a survey should be familiar if a survey is to be appropriately designed and analyzed. The presentation is straightforward and uses numerous appropriate examples and exercises to illustrate ideas. These materials could be used with a wide range of audiences. I would be inclined to include this in my graduate methods class because many students take the methods course before thy have completed the series of statistics courses. For those students who have completed a statistic course, this book can serve as a very nice primer for guiding their decisions in survey design and analysis."
