The Cambridge Dictionary of Statistics (3rd ed.)

by B. S. Everitt

If you use statistics and need easy access to simple, reliable definitions and explanations of modern statistical and statistics-related concepts, then look no further than this dictionary. Over 3600 terms are defined, covering medical, survey, theoretical, and applied statistics, including computational aspects. Entries are provided for standard and specialised statistical software. In addition, short biographies of over 100 important statisticians are given. Definitions provide enough mathematical detail to clarify concepts and give standard formulae when these are helpful. The majority of definitions then give a reference to a book or article where the user can seek further or more specialised information, and many are accompanied by graphical material to aid understanding.
