Written in a clear, readable style with a wide range of explanations and examples,The SAGE Dictionary of Statistics & Methodology,Fifth Edition by W. Paul Vogt and R. Burke Johnson is a must-have dictionary that reflects recent changes in the fields of statistics and methodology.

The SAGE Dictionary of Statistics & Methodology provides a comprehensive listing, definition, and explanation of modern statistical methods. It is invaluable as a reference, not just to researchers engaged in research, but also as a tool for students who are less familiar with research jargon, but who need to read and understand a journal article.

The book also provides suggestions for further reading via useful books, articles, websites, links to recommended statistical software packages, and links to free statistical software applications.

"Do you teach evaluation, research methods, or statistics, or need to teach some key concepts to evaluation stakeholders? Are you in grad school and just learning social science research methods? This handy guide is a great resource for instructors and students alike, as it offers both definitions and relevant, understandable examples. Are you a visual learner? The book also features dozens of easy-to-interpret charts, tables, graphs, and figures."Sheila B. Robinson, AEA365 blog
