Definition of Descriptive and Inferential Statistics

For the following material, I relied on Statistics, Fifth Edition, by Joseph F. Healey, Wadsworth Publishing Co., 1999. ISBN: 0-534-55260-9. This is not to be construed as an endorsement of the text. It was sent to me for consideration as a statistics text. I like it. It covers rather more than I think we can presently include in our course. But it is clearly written, and includes examples on SPSS. We will further consider it for adoption. You can review it in my office. jeanne

You can find material covering this topic in Healey on pp. 7-9.
