    The world of business statistics has grown larger, expanding into and combining with other

    disciplines. And, in a reprise of something that occurred a generation ago, new fields of study -

    this time with names such as informatics, data analytics, and decision science - have emerged.

    The seventh edition of Business Statistics presents a comprehensive study of all these

    developments while retaining the rich pedagogy and style of the earlier editions.

    The guiding philosophy of the book has been to help students see the relevance of statistics in

    their own careers by providing examples drawn from the functional areas in which they may be

    specializing. The cases and learnings will give students ample practice in understanding how to

    apply statistics to business and to familiarize students with the use of spreadsheet and statistical

    software.
