Interpreting Ecomic and Social Data aims at rehabilitating the descriptive function of socio-ecomic statistics, bridging the gap between today's statistical theory on one hand, and ecometric and mathematical models of society on the other. It does this by offering a deeper understanding of data and methods with surprising insights, the result of the author's six decades of teaching, consulting and involvement in statistical surveys. The author challenges many preconceptions about aggregation, time series, index numbers, frequency distributions, regression analysis and probability, nudging statistical theory in a different direction. Interpreting Ecomic and Social Data also links statistics with other quantitative fields like accounting and geography. This book is aimed at students and professors in business, ecomics demographic and social science courses, and in general, at users of socio-ecomic data, requiring only an acquaintance with elementary statistical theory.
