Applied Statistics presents a thorough treatment of the methods of regression and analysis of variance. The book focuses on conceptual understandings of statistical methods in regression and analysis of variance as well as the use of statistical software to obtain correct results. Real data examples from many fields of study are used to motivate the presentation and illustrate the concepts and methods. Almost all of the examples in the book are accompanied with their corresponding SAS programs. The R programs are available on the following website: http://people.cst.cmich.edu/famoy1kf/appliedstat. This textbook is user-friendly and simplifies the presentation of complicated material. Applied Statistics requires an understanding of introductory statistics courses and is suitable for both junior and senior undergraduate students.
