Editorial Reviews


"Interpreting Data: A Guide to Understanding Research is a little book that serves its mission well."

Teaching Sociology, Volume 34, 2006

Review by Susanne Morgan, Ithaca College


Interpreting Data is straightforward, and an instructor could use it to devise exercises in locating and analyzing sources. With its companion Research Navigator Guide, this book could be a particularly valuable package for a research methods or statistics course that requires students to find sources, analyze their structure, understand the data presented, and write competently.

From the Back Cover

Written in non-technical, everyday language, this supplementary text is a quick guide to understanding data. Readers will learn about and practice working with graphs and tables found in popular and scholarly publications, and understand the output from statistical software.

Statistics, tables, graphs, and figures discussed are presented in four steps:

  1. Defining it
  2. Describing where it should or should not be used.
  3. Showing how it is used in a popular magazine or newspaper, academic journal, or in output from SPSS software.
  4. Discussing how to interpret its meaning.
