This textbook discusses central statistical concepts and their use in business and economics. To endure the hardship of abstract statistical thinking, business and economics students need to see interesting applications at an early stage. Accordingly, the book predominantly focuses on exercises, several of which draw on simple applications of non-linear theory. The main body presents central ideas in a simple, straightforward manner; the exposition is concise, without sacrificing rigor. The book bridges the gap between theory and applications, with most exercises formulated in an economic context. Its simplicity of style makes the book suitable for students at any level, and every chapter starts out with simple problems. Several exercises, however, are more challenging, as they are devoted to the discussion of non-trivial economic problems where statistics plays a central part.

Mathematical Statistics for Economics and Business, Second Edition, provides a comprehensive introduction to the principles of mathematical statistics which underpin statistical analyses in the fields of economics, business, and econometrics. The selection of topics in this textbook is designed to provide students with a conceptual foundation that will facilitate a substantial understanding of statistical applications in these subjects. This new edition has been updated throughout and now also includes a downloadable Student Answer Manual containing detailed solutions to half of the over 300 end-of-chapter problems. After introducing the concepts of probability, random variables, and probability density functions, the author develops the key concepts of mathematical statistics, most notably: expectation, sampling, asymptotics, and the main families of distributions. The latter half of the book is then devoted to the theories of estimation and hypothesis testing with associated examples and problems that indicate their wide applicability in economics and business. Features of the new edition include: a reorganization of topic flow and presentation to facilitate reading and understanding; inclusion of additional topics of relevance to statistics and econometric applications; a more streamlined and simple-to-understand notation for multiple integration and multiple summation over general sets or vector arguments; updated examples; new end-of-chapter problems; a solution manual for students; a comprehensive answer manual for instructors; and a theorem and definition map. This book has evolved from numerous graduate courses in mathematical statistics and econometrics taught by the author, and will be ideal for students beginning graduate study as well as for advanced undergraduates.

This worldwide best-selling business statistics text emphasizes applications over calculation. STATISTICS FOR MANAGEMENT AND ECONOMICS, 9e, demonstrates how vital statistical methods are for today’s managers and economists--and teaches students how to apply these tools to real business problems. Through the author’s unique three-step ICI approach to problem solving, students learn to IDENTIFY the correct statistical technique by focusing on the problem objective and data type, then COMPUTE the statistics (doing them by hand, using Excel, or using MINITAB), and ultimately INTERPRET results in the context of the problem. This approach enhances student comprehension and skills while offering you maximum flexibility. Incorporating various functional areas of business, data-driven examples, exercises, and cases demonstrate statistical applications used by marketing managers, financial analysts, accountants, economists, and others, giving students the hands-on practice they need, while sound pedagogical elements make the material accessible to undergrads. In addition, unique teaching and learning resources such as CourseMate save time while giving you more control and better student outcomes.
