Statistics Sources

Mass Media Research: An Introduction - 9th Edition cannot include detailed information about all research topics.  We must limit our discussions in some areas.  If we didn't, the book would be about 1,500 pages long.  One area we have limited is our discussion of statistics.  Our goal has always been to provide an introduction to statistics, not to write a statistics book.  However, we know that some readers would like additional information about statistics, so we have listed several Internet sites for this information.

If you don't find what you're looking for here, search the Internet for specific topics, such as "confidence intervals," "analysis of variance," "z-scores," "Pearson product moment correlation," or "multiple regression."
