Misused statistics : straight talk for twisted numbers by Herbert F Spirer( Book )

25 editions published between 1986 and 1998 in English and held by 1,011 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Numerous misuses of statistics are described and illustrated, and ways of recognizing and avoiding such misuse are discussed. The following five categories of statistical misuse are identified: a lack of knowledge of the subject matter, the quality of the basic data, the preparation of the study and the report, the statistical methodology, and a deliberate suppression of data. Topics addressed include non-statistical knowledge concerning the subjects of statistical analysis, definitional issues, basic data quality, graphics and presentation, methodology, faulty interpretation, data acquisition and analysis for surveys and polls, affirmative action and discrimination, use of the simplest appropriate procedures available, uses of estimates and sources, and governmental uses of statistics. A brief explanation of the concept of life tables is appended. (Tjh)

Spanish Americans in the United States : changing demographic characteristics by A. J Jaffe( Book )

4 editions published in 1976 in English and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Changes in the demographic-socioeconomic characteristics of Mexican Americans, Puerto Ricans, Cubans, Central and South Americans, and Hispanos were examined using primarily 1970 census data. The study briefly reviewed the history of these groups--when they first came to the U.S., the types of immigrants, etc.; noted their geographic distribution within the U.S. and the possible implications of such geographic patterns; and examined the levels of education and school attendance, fertility, and such socioeconomic characteristics as out-marriage, use of English language at home, absence of a Spanish surname, occupation, income, marital status, family size, and employment. The groups were compared to determine their similarities and differences. Among the findings were: about 60% of the U.S. born of Mexican and Puerto Rican origin and about 70% of the Hispanos were high school graduates; while only about 9% of the native men of Mexican descent aged 55 and over had finished high school, 56% of their male descendants aged 20 to 24 had at least this much schooling; among those who completed high school only the Mexican and Hispano women had fertility rates above those of the non-Spanish women, Cubans and Central and South Americans had rates significantly lower. This report contains a description of some of the study's theoretical aspects, some of the broader findings which pertain to all the groups, the findings for each of the five groups, and tabular data.
