Welcome to the SAGE Edge site for Social Statistics for a Diverse Society, 9e.

The Ninth Edition of Social Statistics for a Diverse Society continues to emphasize intuition and common sense while demonstrating the link between the practice of statistics and important social issues. Recognizing that today’s students live in a world characterized by a growing diversity and richness of social differences, best-selling authors Frankfort-Nachmias, Leon-Guerrero, and Davis help students learn key statistical concepts through real research examples related to the dynamic interplay of race, class, gender, and other social variables. The text also helps readers develop important skills such as problem solving (through a rich variety of exercises), use of statistical software (both SPSS and Excel), and interpreting research literature.

This site features an array of free resources you can access anytime, anywhere.
