description

We are constantly bombarded by statistical indicators such as weather reports, election results, inflation rates and stock market trends. Many of these indicators govern our lives. This book demystifies the scientific or pseudo-scientific aura that surrounds indicators and shows how they can be usefully applied for practical purposes. It explains in simple terms what indicators are, how they are developed from statistics with special objectives in mind and the ways in which they should be interpreted. The book covers the wide range of disciplines within the social sciences, from economics, health and education to a more specialized discussion of culture, human rights and peace research. No other book on indicators is as comprehensive in the fields that it covers and as clear in its explanation of general theory and techniques. Robert Horn, formerly an Associate Professor at the University of New South Wales, has published widely in a variety of professional journals.
