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. aSocial sciences - Statistical methods912499 aMultivariate analysis930107 aSteele, Fiona995276 aMoustaki, Irini995277 aGalbraith, Jane I.995278 cBK c164628d164628 00102ddc40708NFICaVSLbVSLcSlot 1424 (0 Floor, East Wing)d2010-09-28e13g1911.00kSlot 1424 (0 Floor, East Wing)l3m5o519.535 B2A6p170842r2017-06-22s2017-03-17v1911.00w2010-09-28yBKA30.99BBRITISH POC15/09/2010DKushal Books E112F28/09/2010GIN472H15/09/2010IFirm OrderJ1911.00K20.00 %L00.00MProf. Tathagata BadyopadhyayN19/8/2010
