# Applied Statistics I: Basic Bivariate Techniques, 3rd Edition

**Welcome to the SAGE edge site for Applied Statistics , Volume I, 3e!**

Rebecca M. Warner’s bestselling *Applied Statistics: From Bivariate Through Multivariate Techniques* has been split into two volumes for ease of use over a two-course sequence.

The author's contemporary approach differs from some of the well-worn texts in the market, and reflects current thinking in the field. It spends less time on statistical significance testing, moving rather in the direction of the "new statistics" that focuses more on confidence intervals and effect size. Instructors of upper undergraduate or beginning graduate level courses will find that the greater focus on basic concepts such as partition of variance and effect size is more useful to students, particularly as preparation for more advanced courses. With less time spent on statistical significance testing, more time can be devoted to more interesting and useful statistics that students will see in journal articles (such as correlation and regression).
