A new reference title, THE PENGUIN DICTIONARY OF STATISTICS is an extremely useful and comprehensive guide to the subject. An ideal reference book for A-level mathematics students and undergraduates, this dictionary is also accessible to students of other disciplines (economics, geography) who regularly use statistics, and to those in the business community who want to understand the terminology. Detailed definitions are supported by diagrams and charts.
