Analysis of Multivariate Social Science Data - David J. Bartholomew; Irini Moustaki; Jane Galbraith; Fiona Steele
Call Number: HA 29 .A5824 2008
ISBN: 9781584889601
Publication Date: 2008
Drawing on the authors' varied experiences working and teaching in the field, Analysis of Multivariate Social Science Data, Second Editionenables a basic understanding of how to use key multivariate methods in the social sciences. With updates in every chapter, this edition expands its topics to include regression analysis, confirmatory factor analysis, structural equation models, and multilevel models. After emphasizing the summarization of data in the first several chapters, the authors focus on regression analysis. This chapter provides a link between the two halves of the book, signaling the move from descriptive to inferential methods and from interdependence to dependence. The remainder of the text deals with model-based methods that primarily make inferences about processes that generate data. Relying heavily on numerical examples, the authors provide insight into the purpose and working of the methods as well as the interpretation of data. Many of the same examples are used throughout to illustrate connections between the methods. In most chapters, the authors present suggestions for further work that go beyond conventional exercises, encouraging readers to explore new ground in social science research. Requiring minimal mathematical and statistical knowledge, this book shows how various multivariate methods reveal different aspects of data and thus help answer substantive research questions.

The Cult of Statistical Significance - Deirdre Nansen McCloskey; Steve Ziliak
Call Number: HB 137 .Z55 2008
ISBN: 9780472070077
Publication Date: 2008
McCloskey and Ziliak have been pushing this very elementary, very correct, very important argument through several articles over several years and for reasons I cannot fathom it is still resisted. If it takes a book to get it across, I hope this book will do it. It ought to.Thomas Schelling, Distinguished University Professor, School of Public Policy, University of Maryland, and 2005 Nobel Prize Laureate in Economics With humor, insight, piercing logic and a nod to history, Ziliak and McCloskey show how economists and other scientists suffer from a mass delusion about statistical analysis. The quest for statistical significance that pervades science today is a deeply flawed substitute for thoughtful analysis. . . . Yet few participants in the scientific bureaucracy have been willing to admit what Ziliak and McCloskey make clear: the emperor has no clothes. Kenneth Rothman, Professor of Epidemiology, Boston University School of Health   The Cult of Statistical Significanceshows, field by field, how statistical significance, a technique that dominates many sciences, has been a huge mistake. The authors find that researchers in a broad spectrum of fields, from agronomy to zoology, employ testing that doesn't test and estimating; that doesn't estimate. The facts will startle the outside reader: how could a group of brilliant scientists wander so far from scientific magnitudes? This study will encourage scientists who want to know how to get the statistical sciences back on track and fulfill their quantitative promise. The book shows for the first time how wide the disaster is, and how bad for science, and it traces the problem to its historical, sociological, and philosophical roots.   Stephen T. Ziliak is the author or editor of many articles and two books. He currently lives in Chicago, where he is Professor of Economics at Roosevelt University. Deirdre N. McCloskey, Distinguished Professor of Economics, History, English, and Communication at the University of Illinois at Chicago, is the author of twenty books and three hundred scholarly articles. She has held Guggenheim and National Humanities Fellowships. She is best known forHow to Be Human* Though an Economist(University of Michigan Press, 2000) and her most recent book,The Bourgeois Virtues: Ethics for an Age of Commerce(2006).

Discovering Statistics Using SPSS: (and sex and drugs and rock n' roll) - Andy Field
Call Number: HA 32 .F54 2009
ISBN: 9781847879066
Publication Date: 2009
Tony C. Brown examines "the inescapable yet infinitely troubling figure of the not-quite-nothing" in Enlightenment attempts to think about the aesthetic and the savage. The various texts Brown considers--including the writings of Addison, Rousseau, Kant, and Defoe--turn to exotic figures in order to delimit the aesthetic, and to aesthetics in order to comprehend the savage. In his intriguing exploration Brown discovers that the primitive introduces into the aesthetic and the savage an element that proves necessary yet difficult to conceive. At its most profound, Brown explains, this element engenders a loss of confidence in one's ability to understand the human's relation to itself and to the world. That loss of confidence--what Brown refers to as a breach in anthropological security--traces to an inability to maintain a sense of self in the face of the New World. Demonstrating the impact of the primitive on the aesthetic and the savage, he shows how the eighteenth-century writers he focuses on struggle to define the human's place in the world. As Brown explains, these authors go back again and again to "exotic" examples from the New World--such as Indian burial mounds and Maori tattooing practice--making them so ubiquitous that they come to underwrite, even produce, philosophy and aesthetics.

Statistical Methods for Practice and Research - Ajai S. Gaur; Sanjaya S. Gaur
Call Number: HA 32 .G38 2009
ISBN: 9788132101000
Publication Date: 2009
Much like Alice Liddell in Lewis Carroll’s Through the Looking Glass, multimedia artist Clifford Ross looks beyond the natural world to uncover another world bound only by the imagination, in which images are reversed and landscapes reimagined in ravishing color. A digital visionary, Ross uses methods old and new to produce exceptionally beautiful and radically redesigned conceptions of reality. In 2009, Ross was commissioned in collaboration with the fine art manufacturers at Franz Mayer of Munich to create a monumental public art project for the US Federal Courthouse in Austin, Texas. The culmination of this collaboration is a colorful twenty-eight-foot-square stained glass wall with built-in hydraulic doors opening into a large event space. This book documents the long process, which brought together architects, engineers, craftsmen, and government officials and combined centuries-old construction techniques with twenty-first-century digital technology. With one hundred full-color illustrations from all phases of the wall’s design and construction, ranging from photographs to pencil sketches and computer renderings, this book charts the creation of a modern monument.

Statistical Persuasion - Robert W. Pearson
Call Number: HA 29 .P348 2010
ISBN: 9781412974967
Publication Date: 2010
This text helps readers understand how to collect, manage, evaluate, and analyze data. It also provides guidelines for the presentation of analysis, especially for nonacademic audiences without training in statistical analysis. These guidelines help ensure that statistics and graphical displays tell the story that analysts want to convey while protecting their analysis from methodological criticism. Author Robert Pearson focuses attention on the conceptual understanding of statistics, while referring (sparingly) to specific formulas when they help reveal a conceptual point about the statistics. Key Features · Combines a concern for the design, collection, measurement, and the management of data with its analysis and presentation · Provides examples and data concerning real world problems in education, crime, government performance, and other policy arenas · Clearly demonstrates the steps used to generate the appropriate statistics and graphs in Excel and SPSS and then provides exercises to replicate and elaborate on these examples This book and its supporting materials are ideally suited for graduate students in professional degree programs in public policy, education, social work, criminology, urban planning, and related schools as well as advanced undergraduates in these fields. The book's explanations, descriptions, illustrations, and step-by-step exercises create the skills and knowledge required of a policy analyst, advisor, consultant or the elected or appointed public official or nonprofit officer who wants to be better able to interpret and evaluate others' applied social research. Its data sets, solutions sets, instructors' manual, lecture slides, and student workbook provide instructors with a complete and fully integrated instructional package.
