The world of business statistics has grown larger, expanding into and combining with other disciplines. And, in a reprise of something that occurred a generation ago, new fields of study –this time with names such as informatics, data analytics and decision science – have emerged. The seventh edition of Business Statistics presents a comprehensive study of all these developments while retaining the rich pedagogy and style of the earlier editions. The guiding philosophy of the book has been to help students see the relevance of statistics in their own careers by providing examples drawn from the functional areas in which they may be specializing.

The cases and learnings will give students ample practice in understanding how to apply statistics to business and to familiarize students with the use of spreadsheet and statisticalsoftware.Getting Started: Important Things to Learn First: Created to help students get a jumpstart on the course and provide coverage of those things that would be helpful to know even before the first class of the term Student Tips: In-margin notes that reinforce hard-to-master concepts and provide quick study tips for mastering important details Stat version 4.1: For Microsoft Excel users, this successor to the PHStat2 statistics add-in contains several new and enhanced procedures, is simpler to set up and run and is compatible with both Microsoft Windows and (Mac)
