Comment from the Stata technical group

In Introduction to Social Statistics: The Logic of Statistical Reasoning, Thomas Dietz and Linda Kalof present and expand on standard introductory statistics. They detail how statistical concepts have or could relate to everyday events, such as studies of crime versus poverty or treaty participation. The authors take their time exposing each new topic and are not shy about delving into ancillary topics, such as profiling famous statisticians or exploring the role of women in the field of statistics. Such discussions are boxed in grey to readily set them apart from the main discussion.

Dietz and Kalof cover various topics, including describing and displaying univariate data, plotting relationships between variables, probability, sampling distributions, estimation, confidence intervals, hypothesis tests, ANOVA, contingency tables, and regression.
