Product Description

The 5th edition of Statistics for Economics, Accounting and Business Studies continues to present a user-friendly and concise introduction to a variety of statistical tools and techniques. Throughout the text, the author demonstrates how and why these techniques can be used to solve real-life problems, highlighting common mistakes and assuming no prior knowledge of the subject.

·        New worked examples in every chapter and more real life business examples such as whether the level of general corruption in a country harms investment and whether boys or girls perform better at school show how to apply an understanding of statistical techniques to wider business practice.

·        New interactive online resource MathXL. See below for more details.

·        Audio animations talk you through key statistical techniques.

This core textbook is aimed at undergraduate and MBA students taking an introductory statistics course on their economics, accounting or business studies degree.

About the Author:

Michael Barrow is a Senior Lecturer in Economics at the University of Sussex. He has acted as a consultant for major, industrial, commercial and government bodies


'An excellent reference book for the undergraduate student; filled with examples and applications - both practical (i.e. computer based) and traditional (i.e. pen and paper problems); wide-ranging and sensibly ordered. The book is clearly written, easy to follow ... yet not in the least patronising. This is a particular strength.' Christopher Gerry, UCL

'There are thousands of intro stats books on the market, but few which are sufficiently orientated towards economics, and even fewer that treat topics with as much rigour as Barrow does.'-- Andy Dickerson, University of Sheffield

'I really like the text book. I think it provides a very clear and coherent introduction to Statistics and I have used the various editions as the core text for my course for at least 6 years. One of its key strengths is the number of real world examples using real economic data, along with worked problems showing students how to apply methods.'Julie Litchfield, University of Sussex

'The Barrow exercises and online resources offer good scope for directing students to a great source of self study.' -- Robert Watkins Kingston University

This book covers the mathematical side without going into to reams of unnecessary detail. The explanations are clear and understandable with worked examples to aid your understanding.

The applications are real world rather than made up. The structure isn't linear, you can selectively read through, picking out the sections you need, and there are sufficient signposts to help you navigate around the text between related topics.

I used this during my MBA studies instead of the recommended textbook and found this clearer and better, both for learning and for understanding what the statistical side was about.

Far from being dry, it re-kindled my appreciation and liking of statistics, which is saying something because I loathed the subject at A Level.

You can also use this as a starting point to using stats more in your career.
