Indirect Sampling
ISBN: 9780387707785 / Angielski / Twarda / 256 str. Following the classical sampling theory, the survey statistician selects samples of people, businesses or others, in order to obtain the desired information. Drawing the samples is usually done by randomly selecting from a list representing the target population. In practice, this list is often not available. At best, the statistician only has access to a different list, indirectly related to the targeted population. The example of a survey of children where the statistician only has a list of adult persons is a typical case. In this case, the statistician first draws a sample of...

Relative Distribution Methods in the Social Sciences
ISBN: 9780387987781 / Angielski / Twarda / 266 str. In social science research, differences among groups or changes over time are a common focus of study. While means and variances are typically the basis for statistical methods used in this research, the underlying social theory often implies properties of distributions that are not well captured by these summary measures. Examples include the current controversies regarding growing inequality in earnings, racial diferences in test scores, socioeconomic correlates of birth outcomes, and the impact of smoking on survival and health. The distributional differences that animate the debates in...

Playfair's Commercial and Political Atlas and Statistical Breviary
ISBN: 9780521855549 / Angielski / Twarda / 248 str. A scientific revolution began at the end of the 18th century with the creation and popularization of the graphic display of data by Scottish inventor William Playfair, who introduced the line graph, bar chart, and pie chart into statistics. His remarkable Atlas demonstrated how much could be learned if one plotted data graphically and looked for suggestive patterns to provide evidence for pursuing research. In the Statistical Breviary, Playfair invented the pie chart and expanded upon this concept to facilitate the comparison of the resources of European countries. Playfair's work has great...

But it has been demonstrated that many people do not have an opinion about major issuesthe "nonattitudes" problem. Also, the framing of questions in different ways can generate very different estimates of public opinionthe "framing" effect. Both dilemmas raise questions about the competence of ordinary citizens to play the role a democratic society ostensibly expects of them. Although the impact of some factors is well established, particularly political information and sophistication, much is yet to be understood. ...
