Statistics Support Sites
Here are a series of websites to help you with statistics. The information under the URL may come from the site if information is available otherwise it is the reviewers comments.
The package was created as an initial attempt to solve many of the problems which exist with the delivery and use of modern statistical software. Many times statisticians develop procedures in languages such as Splus, SAS, Minitab, etc.., which are very specific to statisticians. Students and other potential users may not have access to these languages, and therefore may not be able to use the procedures. By using Java and the World Wide Web, StatCrunch should reach the broadest possible audience of any statistical software of its kind. StatCrunch was chosen as the 2005 Classics Award winner for the Statistics discipline for several reasons. StatCrunch allows any student with internet access the ability to have a reasonably full featured statistical analysis program without cost. This means that students who are taking courses through distance education can now have the same software as students on campus. Students who are working on a statistics assignment at home can now have the same software as they would in a lab on campus.
Excel is the widely used statistical package, which serves as a tool to understand statistical concepts and computation to check your hand-worked calculation in solving your homework problems. The site provides an introduction to understand the basics of and working with the Excel. Redoing the illustrated numerical examples in this site will help improving your familiarity and as a result increase the effectiveness and efficiency of your process in statistics.
This site contains materials for a college level undergraduate statistics course. The approach places emphasis on practical application. Examples are shown with hand computations and with the Minitab statistical program (V13.1). There are a couple of spreadsheets as well.
The material is divided into chapters and consists of text, tables, equations, and figures, in a hypermedia format. Minitab tutorials and some Excel spreadsheets are linked to the chapters as are homework assignments. The material is designed for use in a classroom with a presentation device. The students typically print the lectures (preferably on a color printer) in advance.
The text used as a supplement for the course is McCall, R. B. (2001). Fundamental Statistics for Behavioral Sciences (8-th edition). NY: Harcourt, Brace and Company.
Statistics Every Writer Should Know
A simple guide to understanding basic statistics, for journalists and other writers who might not know math.
This is a site that is meant to explain to writers what statistical data means. However, it is also a simple review, with examples, of statistical analysis from "Means" to "Sample Sizes."
Listing of sites to help with various statistical analysis.
Welcome to Statistics Help Online. This is a brief introduction to probability theory and statistics. There are many different expositions of statistical analysis online. I try to emphasize understanding statistics fundamentals, rather than giving a litany of tests that can be used. This is the most important thing for those seeking statistics help. Statistics is one of the most often used technical tools and it is also the most often misapplied one. I try to give you an overview of what it''s all about and how to avoid misapplying it
