Description (in Danish)
Mange videnskabelige discipliner såvel som mange økonomisk-politiske diskussioner er i dag funderet på data, og statistik er derfor et nødvendigt værktøj i disse sammenhænge.

Gennem konkrete datasæt og problemstillinger giver Statistik – viden fra data en grundig indføring i de basale principper i en statistisk analyse.

Bogen introducerer en række simple modeller og test inden for disse. Vægten ligger på baggrunden og på forståelse af metoderne, men bogen indeholder desuden en lang række opgaver, der kan bruges i et kursusforløb.

Statistik – viden fra data henvender sig til alle, der enten direkte i egen forskning eller gennem læsning af litteratur skal forholde sig til konklusioner baseret på data.
