Editorial Reviews

Review

"At last, a second course in statistics that is serious, correct, and interesting. The book teaches regression, causal modeling, maximum likelihood, and the bootstrap. Everyone who analyzes real data should read this book, and we are extremely fortunate to now have the revised edition."
Persi Diaconis, Professor of Mathematics and Statistics, Stanford University

"A pleasure to read, this newly revised edition of Statistical Models shows the field's most elegant writer at the height of his powers. While most textbooks hurry past core assumptions in order to explicate technique, this book places the spotlight on the core assumptions, challenging readers to think critically about how they are invoked in practice."
Donald Green, Professor of Political Science, Yale University

"For three decades, David Freedman has been the conscience of statistics as applied to important scientific, policy, and legal issues. This book is his legacy, and it is our great good fortune to have the new edition. It should be required reading for any user of multivariate models -- statistician or otherwise -- whose ultimate concern is not with statistical technique but rather with the substantive conclusions, if any, licensed by the data and the analysis."
James M. Robins, Professor of Epidemiology and Biostatistics, Harvard School of Public Health

"Statistical models: theory and practice is lucid, helpful, insightful and a joy to read. It focuses on the most common tools of applied statistics with a clear and simple presentation. This revised edition organizes the chapters differently, making reading much easier. Moreover, it includes many new examples and exercises. In summary, it is a nice and extremely useful addition to the statistical literature."
Heleno Balfarine, Mathematical Reviews

Book Description

This lively and engaging textbook explains the things you have to know in order to read empirical papers in the social and health sciences, as well as the techniques you need to build statistical models of your own. The author, David A. Freedman, explains the basic ideas of association and regression and takes you through the current models that link these ideas to causality.
