• In Real Data, students predict the answers to interesting questions. Then they analyze data supplied by leading researchers to see if there is empirical support for their predictions. • Students get practice in computing all the major statistics usually covered in an introductory statistics course. • Because each of the 35 exercises in Part A deals with only a limited number of statistics, the workbook is easily coordinated with all introductory statistics textbooks. • Part A emphasizes small data sets that are useful whether students are using calculators or computers. The exercises in this part are highly structured so students know exactly what is required of them. • Part B provides larger data sets for comprehensive analysis by computer users. Loosely structured, the data sets allow you to specify which statistics should be computed. • Sample topics: Kissing and Sexual Harassment; Basic Trust of Rape Survivors; Gambling and Stealing; Pregnancy Risk Among Adolescents Who Had Been Sexually Abused; Boys Interacting with Their Fathers; Racial Differences in Seeking Medical Assistance; Instructors’ Clothing and Student Evaluations; Students’ Attitudes Toward Math; and Physician-Assisted Suicide. • Using real data for analysis makes the traditional statistics class come alive.

• Designed for use by novice computer users, this text begins with the basics, such as starting SPSS, defining variables, and entering and saving data. • All major statistical techniques covered in beginning statistics classes are included: · descriptive statistics · graphing data · prediction and association · parametric inferential statistics · nonparametric inferential statistics · statistics for test construction • Each section starts with a brief description of the statistic that is covered and important underlying assumptions, which help students select appropriate statistics. • Each section describes how to interpret results and express them in a research report after the data are analyzed. For example, students are shown how to phrase the results of a significant and an insignificant t test. • More than 200 screenshots (including sample output) throughout the book show students exactly what to expect as they follow along using SPSS. • A glossary of statistical terms is included, which makes a handy reference for students who need to review the meanings of basic statistical terms. • Practice exercises throughout the book give students stimulus material to use as they practice to achieve mastery of the program. • Thoroughly field-tested; your students are certain to appreciate this book.

Twenty-?ve years have passed since the publication of the Russian version of the book Estimation of Dependencies Based on Empirical Data (EDBED for short). Twen- ?ve years is a long period of time. During these years many things have happened. Looking back, one can see how rapidly life and technology have changed, and how slow and dif?cult it is to change the theoretical foundation of the technology and its philosophy. I pursued two goals writing this Afterword: to update the technical results presented in EDBED (the easy goal) and to describe a general picture of how the new ideas developed over these years (a much more dif?cult goal). The picture which I would like to present is a very personal (and therefore very biased) account of the development of one particular branch of science, Empirical - ference Science. Such accounts usually are not included in the content of technical publications. I have followed this rule in all of my previous books. But this time I would like to violate it for the following reasons. First of all, for me EDBED is the important milestone in the development of empirical inference theory and I would like to explain why. S- ond, during these years, there were a lot of discussions between supporters of the new 1 paradigm (now it is called the VC theory ) and the old one (classical statistics).

## The Nature Of Statistical Learning Theory

The aim of this book is to discuss the fundamental ideas which lie behind the statistical theory of learning and generalization. It considers learning from the general point of view of function estimation based on empirical data. Omitting proofs and technical details, the author concentrates on discussing the main results of learning theory and their connections to fundamental problems in statistics. These include: - the general setting of learning problems and the general model of minimizing the risk functional from empirical data - a comprehensive analysis of the empirical risk minimization principle and shows how this allows for the construction of necessary and sufficient conditions for consistency - non-asymptotic bounds for the risk achieved using the empirical risk minimization principle - principles for controlling the generalization ability of learning machines using small sample sizes - introducing a new type of universal learning machine that controls the generalization ability.

Getting accurate data on less developed countries has created great problems for studying these areas. Yet until recently students of development economics have relied on standard econometrics texts, which assume a Western context. Econometrics and Data Analysis for Developing Countries solves this problem. It will be essential reading for all advanced students of development economics.
