Statistical data analysis is the backbone of sound business decision making. Finding the right tool to analyse a particular business problem is the key to such problem solving.

By providing a framework for solving statistical problems, this sixth edition of Australian Business Statistics teaches skills that you can use throughout your career. The book shows you how to analyse data effectively by focusing on the relationship between the kind of problem you face, the type of data involved and the appropriate statistical technique for solving the problem.

Business Statistics 6e, emphasizes applications over theory. It illustrates how vital statistical methods and tools are for today's managers and analysts and how to apply them to business problems using real-world data. Using a proven three-step Identify-Compute-Interpret (ICI) approach to problem solving, the text teaches you how to (1) IDENTIFY the correct statistical technique by focusing on the problem objective and data type; (2) COMPUTE the statistics doing them by hand and using Excel; and (3) INTERPRET results in the context of the problem.
