Example text

Ratio Same as interval plus meaningful zero. Although the distinctions among nominal, ordinal, interval, and ratio data appear straightforward on paper, the lines between them occasionally get a bit fuzzy.

Strictly speaking, we have no assurance that the difference between an IQ of 80 and one of 100 means the same as the difference between 120 and 140; that is, IQ most likely is an ordinal variable.

For example, with an increasing number of journals, it’s not sufficient to run a test of significance; they now require authors to supplement statistical tests with confidence intervals and some indication of effect size, so we’ve added these whenever possible. We’ve added a lot more to the chapters on regression and ANOVA (analysis of variance), and, in short, turned an excellent book into a fantastic one. One thing hasn’t changed (we hope), and that’s our belief that having the word statistics in the same sentence as funny, irreverent, and possibly obscene doesn’t constitute an oxymoron.
