Abstract

Essentials of Social Statistics for a Diverse Society is a briefer version of the successful Social Statistics for a Diverse Society, and as in the parent text, the use of real data about contemporary social issues sets this book apart from others in the field. The text explains how to compute and interpret basic descriptive and inferential statistics while teaching and reinforcing important sociological concepts. In every chapter, the authors demonstrate how statistics is an important tool for studying and understanding the role of race, class, gender, and other statuses in a pluralistic society like the United States.
