Encyclopedia of Measurement and Statistics

by Neil J. Salkind

The Encyclopedia of Measurement and Statistics presents state-of-the-art information and ready-to-use facts from the fields of measurement and statistics in an unintimidating style. The ideas and tools contained in these pages are approachable and can be invaluable for understanding our very technical world and the increasing flow of information. Although there are references that cover statistics and assessment in depth, none provides as comprehensive a resource in as focused and accessible a manner as the three volumes of this Encyclopedia. Through approximately 500 contributions, experts provide an overview and an explanation of the major topics in these two areas.

In The Press

"Since all students grapple daily with research that has components of statistics and/or measurements, they will find this tool to be a solid choice. In 1,100 pages, the encyclopedia succinctly defines more than 600 concepts. The index is easy to use and has appropriate cross-referencing. The style is good technical writing, understandable to generalists or undergraduates. This is a strong candidate for all reference collections serving the general public and undergraduates. Highly recommended."
