New! Encyclopedia of Measurement and Statistics

Encyclopedia of Measurement and Statistics edited by Neil J. Salkind (2007, 3 volumes) located at Langdell Reference HA29.S2363 2007. With the increased attention to empiricism in legal scholarship, this reference work could be just what the statistically minded lawyer or law student is looking for. Presented in typical encyclopedia subject arrangement, each of the 500 entries is signed by the contributor and includes a bibliography of further reading. Volume three has a comprehensive index and master bibliography as well as several appendices including Appendix B: Internet Sites About Statistics.
