The world is saturated with data. We are regularly presented with data in words, tables, and graphics. Students from many academic fields are now expected to be educated about data in one form or another. Yet the typical sequence of courses—introductory statistics and research methods—does not provide sufficient information about data, about how to work with data sets, or about how to present data to various audiences.

 

This book is designed for these purposes. Principles of Data Management and Presentation discusses how data are used in research projects, where to get data, how to manage data with software, and how to present data so that one’s message is conveyed clearly and effectively. With few assumptions beyond some familiarity with basic statistics and research methods, this book provides a comprehensive set of principles for understanding and using data as part of a research project.  

A companion website will include material to enhance the learning experience—specifically statistical software code and the datasets used in the examples, in text format as well as Stata, SPSS, and SAS formats.
