Description of this Book
This is an introduction to statistics, using headlines, clippings and data exhibited in the mass media to provide a systematic and critical training in the analysis of data. The book highlights the role played by statistics in decision making, warning the reader of the plausible deceptions that can be practised on the innocent by failure to describe adequately deficiencies in the data and by the drawing of unjustified conclusions. Readers swamped by the alleged findings of polls and surveys will find the text a useful guide to critical evaluation of the opinions urged by the pollsters. The book is an up-dated extension of a textbook in Swedish published by the authors, now presented for the first time in the English language.
