The book provides clear explanations of complex issues and includes helpful charts, graphs, figures, sample questionnaires, and case studies which make important points easier to grasp. The practice cases (including an SPSS 11.0 data disk) offer engaging real-world problems that test the student’s research and analysis skills.

A brand-new section details procedures on how to successfully perform and effectively use Internet surveys, and includes a list of online survey providers, bulk email providers, and sample emails to use with online surveys.
