Incorporating a hands-on pedagogical approach, Nonparametric Statistics for Social and Behavioral Sciences presents the concepts, principles, and methods used in performing many nonparametric procedures. It also demonstrates practical applications of the most common nonparametric procedures using IBM’s SPSS software.

This text is the only current nonparametric book written specifically for students in the behavioral and social sciences. Emphasizing sound research designs, appropriate statistical analyses, and accurate interpretations of results, the text:

  • Explains a conceptual framework for each statistical procedure
  • Presents examples of relevant research problems, associated research questions, and hypotheses that precede each procedure
  • Details SPSS paths for conducting various analyses
  • Discusses the interpretations of statistical results and conclusions of the research

With minimal coverage of formulas, the book takes a nonmathematical approach to nonparametric data analysis procedures and shows students how they are used in research contexts. Each chapter includes examples, exercises, and SPSS screen shots illustrating steps of the statistical procedures and resulting output.
