Roxy Peck, Chris Olsen, and Jay Devore's new edition uses real data and attention-grabbing examples to introduce students to the study of statistics and data analysis. Traditional in structure yet modern in approach, this text guides students through an intuition-based learning process that stresses interpretation and communication of statistical information. Simple notation--including frequent substitution of words for symbols--helps students grasp concepts and cement their comprehension. Hands-on activities and interactive applets allow students to practice statistics firsthand. INTRODUCTION TO STATISTICS AND DATA ANALYSIS, 5e includes updated coverage of most major technologies, as well as expanded coverage of probability.

- Real data gives students authentic scenarios that help them understand statistical concepts in relevant, interesting contexts.
- A chapter on Nonparametric Methods is available online, giving you the option of covering this topic if you wish.
- "Interpreting and Communicating the Results of Statistical Analysis" sections, which emphasize the importance of being able to interpret statistical output and communicate its meaning to non-statisticians, have assignable end-of-section questions associated with them.
- The book emphasizes graphical display as a necessary component of data analysis and provides broad coverage of sampling, survey design, experimental design and transformations, and nonlinear regression.

“This is a great mathematical statistics textbook”

— Kendra Mhoon, University of Houston Downtown

- JMP statistical software is now packaged with new copies of the text.
- Now, for instructors who prefer a briefer and more informal treatment of probability, two chapters previously from the book Statistics: The Exploration and Analysis of Data by Roxy Peck and Jay Devore are available as a custom option. Please contact your Cengage learning consultant for more information about this alternative and other alternative customized options available to you. (See the information listed below under the heading “Alternate TOC” for specific coverage in the two chapters.)
- Chapter-ending Technology Notes on JMP, Minitab, SPSS, Microsoft Excel 2007, TI-83/84, and TI-nspire provide helpful hints and guidance on completing tasks associated with a particular chapter, as well as display screens to help students visualize and better understand the steps. More complete technology manuals are available on the text website.
- A more informal writing style accommodates a broader range of student reading levels.
- Helpful hints in exercises that direct students to relevant examples in the text help students who may be having trouble getting started.

All supplements have been updated in coordination with the Main title.
