The book shows how students can use quantitative data to answer various questions:
Is it true that the rich are getting richer and the poor are getting poorer?
Are crime rates really going down, and how can we tell?
How much alcohol do men and women really drink in an average week?
Which country in Europe has the highest average working hours?
Readers are encouraged to explore data for themselves, and are carefully guided through the opportunities and pitfalls of using statistical packages, as well as the numerous data sources readily available online.
Suitable for those with no previous experience of quantitative data analysis, the second edition of Exploring Data will be invaluable to students across the social sciences.
