Introductory statistics

This is the fifth edition of this text, and it’s not difficult to see why it has proved to be so enduringly popular. It is a massive work, probably the most comprehensive introduction to statistics that I’ve come across. The book follows a format of providing a basic introduction to relevant definitions and commonly used terms, and then offers sections on organisation of data, probability, sampling, hypothesis development and testing methods (parametric and non-parametric).
