This bundle is just $2 more than the price of the Frankfort-Nachmias text alone and provides students with a valuable guide to using SPSS.

Social Statistics for a Diverse Society with SPSS Student Version 16.0, 5th Edition
teaches basic statistics while incorporating real research examples related to the dynamic interplay of race, class, gender and other social variables within our society and our global neighbours. The text includes resources designed to support effective teaching: illustrations showing how statistical concepts are used to interpret social issues, guides for reading and interpreting the research literature, SPSS demonstrations, and a rich variety of exercises.

This new edition has been substantially reorganized, to include:

  • Descriptive and inferential statistics in discrete units, followed by coverage of data analysis
  • Social issues beyond race and gender, for example, class and mobility
  • New end-of-chapter exercises
  • A fresh data set for criminology and social work
  • Fully updated features, including 'Learning Checks', 'Statistics in Practice', 'A Closer Look' boxes and other helpful devices

This SPSS Student Version Edition includes the SPSS Student Version CD, allowing students to practice SPSS on their laptops (rather than in computer labs).

Using SPSS for Social Statistics and Research Methods, Second Edition shows readers how to use SPSS software in statistical data analysis. This fully updated Second Edition features images and directions drawn from SPSS Version 17.0 and now uses the latest version of the GSS (General Social Survey) as a secondary data set.
