Doane, Applied Statistics in Business and Economics, Canadian edition, offers an Excel focused approach to using statistics in Canadian business. All statistical concepts are illustrated with applied examples immediately upon introduction. Modern computing tools and applications are introduced, and the text maintains a strong focus on presenting statistical concepts as applied in business, as opposed to providing programming methods used to find a mathematical solution. Interpretation is heavily emphasized, enabling students to take full advantage of Excel to develop and drive problem-solving skills.

Doane offers proven technology solutions that are focused on helping students succeed. Connect provides students with an online self-study tool that includes an integrated eBook, and custom study plan, while optional Lyryx Assessment Business Statistics contains algorithmic problems tied to the Doane text, unlimited opportunity for students to practice, and automatic grading with extensive feedback for students and instructors.
Connect is included with each new Doane print text at no additional cost. Lyryx Assessment Business Statistics is available to package with the Doane text at a small additional cost. These tools will help students maximize their study time and make their learning experience more enjoyable.

Retained Features

Incorporates Current Statistical Practices and Offers Practical Advice. With the increased reliance on computers, statistics practitioners have changed the way they use statistical tools. The reader will learn the current practices and why they are used. The text also explains when each technique should not be used. Doane uses Real Data and Real Business Applications examples, case studies, and problems are taken from published research or real applications whenever possible. Hypothetical data is used when it seems the best way to illustrate a concept.

Includes a Variety of Exercises. Simple practice exercises are placed within each section. End-of-chapter exercises tend to be more integrative or to be embedded in more realistic contexts. The end-of-chapter exercises encourage students to try alternative approaches and discuss ambiguities or underlying issues when the statistical tools do not quite "fit" the situation. Many exercises invite mini-essays (at least a sentence or two) rather than just quoting a formula. Exercises marked * involve optional chapter material or more time-consuming answers (not tougher math). Answers to odd-numbered exercises are in the back of the book. The CD has Excel data sets for each chapter's examples and exercises, so there is no need to enter a lot of data.

Provides More In-Depth Explanation of the ‘Why’ and Lets the Software Take Care of the ‘How. It is critical that students understand the importance of communicating with data. Today's computer capabilities make it much easier to summarize and display data than ever before. The authors demonstrate easily mastered software techniques using the common software available. They also spend a great deal of time on the idea that there are risks in decision making and those risks should be quantified and directly considered in every business decision
