Welcome to behavioral statistics, a statistics textbook for social science majors! ["Facebook Connections" by mikecogh is licensed with CC BY-SA 2.0.]

## 1: Introduction to Behavioral Statistics

You might be tempted to skip this first chapter, but it includes lots of new vocabulary (or vocabulary that you know, but now they have technical definitions), so don't fall for that tempation!## 2: What Do Data Look Like? (Graphs)

Humans aren't good at looking at a bunch of numbers and figuring out what they mean. Instead, we should first look at the numbers as pictures. This chapter will discuss graphing.## 3: Descriptive Statistics

This chapter will show you how to describe a distribution of data with just a few numbers.## 4: Distributions

There are kinds of distributions of data that are so common that they have a name. Some distributions have special characteristics that are the underpinning of all of statistics.## 5: Using z

Our first statistical analysis to answer a research question!## 6: APA Style

You might know how to format a paper in MLA, but you're in the social sciences now!## 7: Inferential Statistics and Hypothesis Testing

So far we've been using statistics to mostly describe a sample. But we can do so much more with what we've learned about probability and the Standard Normal Curve. I'll show you!## 9: Independent Samples t-test

But what if you want to compare two groups, not a sample to a population?## 10: Dependent Samples t-test

What do you do when your two groups are related?## 11: BG ANOVA

What do you do to compare three unrelated groups?## 12: RM ANOVA

But what if your three groups are related?## 13: Factorial ANOVA (Two-Way)

But what if you have two independent variables, each with at least two levels? What do you do then?!## 14: Correlations

What if you don't have groups measured on the same DV?## 16: Chi-Square

But what if you only have qualitative variables?## 17: Wrap Up

Are you sure which statistical test to choose? Do you know why you took this course? Can you interpret statistical results? Let's see!## Back Matter
