About the Authors
  • If you use statistics and need easy access to simple, reliable definitions and explanations of modern statistical concepts, then look no further than this dictionary. Over 3600 terms are defined, covering medical, survey, theoretical, and applied statistics, including computational aspects. Entries are provided for standard and specialized statistical software. In addition, short biographies of over 100 important statisticians are given. Definitions provide enough mathematical detail to clarify concepts and give standard formulae when these are helpful. The majority of definitions then give a reference to a book or article where the user can seek further or more specialized information, and many are accompanied by graphical material to aid understanding.

    • Trusted author in touch with contemporary statistical practice
    • Carefully chosen pointers to the literature give users access to information beyond the basic definitions
    • Ideal balance between concepts and details

    Reviews & endorsements

    "Everitt's text is broken up with many well-chosen graphs, diagrams and pictures; numerical examples are sometimes used to illuminate the written entries. These features help make it the more attractive book to skim through, allowing the happy accident of lexicographic adjacency to divert you to fascinating byways...One could not ask for more...[an] excellent value."

    "The author judiciously provides graphs, tables, and equations to halp make the definitions clear and precise... This useful book will be valuable on the reference shelf of statisticians, students of statistics, and scientists working with statistics."
    Christine M. Anderson-Cook, Journal of the American Statistical Association
