Product Description

From the Back Cover

'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

This fourth edition of Statistics for Economics, Accounting and Business Studies is written to provide a clear and concise introduction to a range of statistical concepts and techniques. Throughout the text the author highlights how and why these techniques can be used to solve real-life problems, ensuring that the material is relevant to the experience of the student. 


·        Assumes no prior knowledge of statistics or advanced level mathematics

·        Numerous real-life examples, problems and applications are included, some based on Excel

·        Calculating statistics on a computer is explained and illustrated using industry-based software, databases, etc.

·        Boxes highlight interesting issues, common mistakes and give advice on using computers in statistical analysis

·        A website accompanies the book with resources for students and instructors.

New to this edition:

·        More worked examples and real life business applications show students how to use the various techniques

·        Section exercises and end of chapter problems allow for practice and testing

·        Chapters have been reorganised, making the order more logical and flexible.

This is a core text for introductory courses in statistics at undergraduate and MBA level. The book will be particularly suitable for economics and accounting students and will also appeal to those taking courses in business studies.
