Economic statistics

This third edition of Applied Statistics for Business & Economics: an Essentials Version can be used effectively in either a one-semester or two-semester statistics course. While the material has been compressed to permit a streamlined discussion typical of a one-semester course, topical coverage remains sufficient to challenge even those students who complete their initial exposure to statistical analysis in a two-semester sequence. Every opportunity is used to demonstrate the manner in which statistics can effectively facilitate the many decisions that business managers face.

Salient Features

Realistic opening cases (Setting the stage) addressed using the statistical tools contained in the chapter.
Section at the close of each chapter (Curtain Call) refereeing to the opening cases.
