Statistical Analysis in the Social Sciences by McKee J. McClendon

Statistical Analysis in the Social Sciences imbeds basic descriptive and inferential statistical concepts within a unified framework: the linear regression model. The regression model is used not only for conducting standard regression analyses but also for other statistical analyses that are ordinarily taught as separate and distinct techniques, such as correlation, difference of means, analysis of variance, and certain nonparametric tests. This extensive use of a single statistical model will increase students' depth of understanding and give them a sense of mastery and self-confidence that they might otherwise fail to achieve in their first statistics course.
