Analyzing multivariate data [Monograph]Table of contents
Lattin, J.M. \ Carroll, J.D. \ Green, P.E. \ 2003
data analysis - multivariate analysis - statistical analysis - social sciences

Offering the latest teaching and practice of applied multivariate statistics, this text is perfect for students who need an applied introduction to the subject. Lattin, Carroll, and Green have created a text that speaks to the needs of applied students who have advanced beyond the beginning level, but are not advanced statistics majors. The text provides a three-part structure. First, the authors begin each major topic by developing students' statistical intuition through applications. Then, they providing illustrative examples for support. Finally, for those courses where it will be valuable, they describe relevant mathematical underpinnings with vectors and matrix algebra. Additionally, each chapter follows a standard format. This format begins by discussing a general set of research objectives, followed by illustrative examples of problems in different areas. Then it provides an explanation of how each method works, followed by a sample problem, application of the technique, and interpretation of results.

The third edition of Qualitative Data Analysis is updated and streamlined by Johnny Saldaña, author of The Coding Manual for Qualitative Researchers. Several of the data display strategies from previous editions are now presented in re-envisioned and reorganized formats to enhance reader accessibility and comprehension. The third edition’s presentation of the fundamentals of research design and data management is followed by five distinct methods of analysis: exploring, describing, ordering, explaining, and predicting. Miles and Huberman's original research studies are profiled and accompanied with new examples from Saldaña's recent qualitative work. The book's most celebrated chapter, "Drawing and Verifying Conclusions," is retained and revised, and the chapter on report writing has been greatly expanded, and is now called “Writing About Qualitative Research.” Comprehensive and authoritative, Qualitative Data Analysis has been elegantly revised for a new generation of qualitative researchers.
