Statistical Methods provides a discussion of the principles of the organization and technique of research, with emphasis on its application to the problems in social statistics. This book discusses branch statistics, which aims to develop practical ways of collecting and processing numerical data and to adapt general statistical methods to the objectives in a given field. Organized into five parts encompassing 22 chapters, this book begins with an overview of how to organize the collection of such information on individual units, primarily as accomplished by government agencies. This text then examines the other types of statistical series such as geographical, time, and structural series. Other chapters consider several types of relative numbers and analyze some related problems in greater detail. This book discusses as well the methods of analysis of interdependence between the characteristics deals with these methods. The final chapter deals with cases in which partial research is either an incorrect form of pseudo-sampling survey. This book is a valuable resource for economists.
