Statistics and the Media: Foundations in Statistical Thinking through Media Examples uses real-world examples from various media to give students an introduction to fundamentals of statistical thinking. Unlike many standard texts in the discipline, the book focuses on conceptual understanding - the meaning behind mathematical calculations rather than the calculations themselves.

Written in accessible language, Statistics and the Media begins by discussing the importance of learning how research is conducted and the way research results, on any topic, are presented by the media. This understanding creates an essential context for subsequent chapters on surveys and polling, variation in measurement data, understanding probability, hypothesis testing, linear regression, and more. Students also learn how statistics can be manipulated by researchers to provide a desired result.

An ideal supplement to any primary statistics text, Statistics and the Media helps readers view statistics as a common-sense, observational, fact-based way of thinking about the world. The book can be used in any course that deals with introductory statistics, particularly those in the social sciences, business, finance, and economics.
