Newly retitled The Practice of Statistics for Business and Economics to reflect the true scope of its coverage, this new third edition of the text is its most accomplish yet--a conceptually rich, mathematically accessible survey of basic statistical methods in a business/economics context that emphasizes working with data and mastering statistical reasoning.
New to this Edition
1. New Title：“Economics” is in the title to reflect the significant number of economics-oriented examples and applications, and to emphasize that book can be used in the statistics course for economics.
2. Structural Changes：Three chapters have undergone significant changes to the order of their content: Probability Theory (Chapter 5)、Quality Control (Chapter 12)、Time-series Forecasting (Chapter 13).
3. New Exercises：Over 25% of the exercises are new and over 25% include revised numvers or updated data sets, making over half of the exercises different from the previous edition. The authors emphasize the business or economics relevance of the exercises more clearly than ever.
4. Increased Emphasis on Computing：This edition updates and more strongly emphasizes the pivotal role of software in business and economics statistics. For example, Chapter 3 now explains how to perform randomization for samples and experiments using spreadsheets rather than relying exclusively on tables of random numbers.
