Unlike most statistical texts, this book breathes real life into multivariate analysis. Starting with a range of actual research examples in the social sciences, it demonstrates how to make the most appropriate choice of technique. The examples are drawn from a broad spectrum of disciplines including: sociology, psychology, economics, political science and international comparative research.

Industry Reviews

`For the statistician seeking a fresh and original angle on the methods in question, this book will prove stimulating and thought provoking' - The Statistician

`One of the difficulties facing teachers of social research is the lack of sociological examples in current textbooks when it comes to explaining statistical findings in substantive terms. We can only appreciate the effort Tacq has made in searching out the examples he has chosen' - European Sociological Review
