Demonstrate how statistical methods are vital for today's managers and economists as you teach students how to apply these tools to real business problems with the 11th edition of Statistics for Management and Economics.

This best-selling business and economic statistics text emphasizes applications over calculations using a unique three-step "ICI" approach to problem solving. Students IDENTIFY the correct statistical technique by focusing on the problem objective and data type; then COMPUTE the statistics (by hand, using ExcelŽ 2016, or using XLSTAT Excel add-in); and ultimately INTERPRET results in the context of the problem.

Readers examine functional areas of business as data-driven examples, more than 2400 exercises, and 32 cases demonstrate how marketing managers, financial analysts, accountants, and economists use statistical applications. Many exercises feature returns on 40 stocks. Students can download 1100 data sets, online appendixes and Data Analysis Plus from the book’s website.

The South African Informal Sector - Providing Jobs, Reducing Poverty (Paperback): Frederick Fourie The South African Informal Sector - Providing Jobs, Reducing Poverty (Paperback)
Frederick Fourie
R290 R230 Discovery Miles 2 300 Save R60 (21%) Shipped within 4 - 10 working days

Although South Africa’s informal sector is small compared to other developing countries, it nevertheless provides livelihoods, employment and income for millions of workers and business owners. Almost half of informal-sector workers work in firms with employees. The annual entry of new enterprises is quite high, as is the number of informal enterprises that grow their employment. There is no shortage of entrepreneurship and desire to grow.

However, obstacles and constraints cause hardship and failure, pointing to the need for well-designed policies to enable and support the sector, rather than suppress it. The same goes for formalisation. Recognising the informal sector as an integral part of the economy, rather than ignoring it, is a crucial first step towards instituting a ‘smart’ policy approach.

The South African Informal Sector is strongly evidence- and data-driven, with substantial quantitative contributions combined with qualitative findings – suitable for an era of increased pressure for evidence-based policy-making – and utilises several disciplinary perspectives.

Who Gets What - And Why - Understand the Choices You Have, Improve the Choices You Make (Paperback): Alvin Roth Who Gets What - And Why - Understand the Choices You Have, Improve the Choices You Make (Paperback)

R212 R149 Discovery Miles 1 490 Save R63 (30%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

This book shows how our lives are shaped not only by the choices we make, but by the choices we have. From dating, school and university applications to the job market, understand the most important decisions you'll ever make with insights from a Nobel Prize-winner. Who Gets What and Why is a piquantly written, mind-expanding exploration of the markets that matter most to many of us. If you've ever sought a job or hired someone, applied to university or guided your child into a good school, asked someone out on a date or been asked out, you have participated in a matching market. They are everywhere around us and account for some of the biggest technological successes of the decade, like Uber and Airbnb. Matching markets can even be the gatekeeper of life itself, guiding how desperately ill patients receive scarce organs for transplants. Alvin E. Roth shared the 2012 Nobel Prize in economics for his pioneering research into market design - the principles that govern all kinds of markets where money isn't the only factor in determining who gets what. His book reveals what factors make these markets work well - or badly - and shows us all how to recognise a good match and make smarter, more confident decisions.

How the obsession with quantifying human performance threatens business, medicine, education, government "and the quality of our lives Today, organizations of all kinds are ruled by the belief that the path to success is quantifying human performance, publicizing the results, and dividing up the rewards based on the numbers. But in our zeal to instill the evaluation process with scientific rigor, we've gone from measuring performance to fixating on measuring itself "and this tyranny of metrics now threatens the quality of our organizations and lives. In this brief, accessible, and powerful book, Jerry Muller uncovers the damage metrics are causing and shows how we can begin to fix the problem. Filled with examples from business, medicine, education, government, and other fields, the book explains why paying for measured performance doesn't work, why surgical scorecards may increase deaths, and much more. But Muller also shows that, when used as a complement to judgment based on personal experience, metrics can be beneficial, and he includes an invaluable checklist of when and how to use them. The result is an essential corrective to a harmful trend that increasingly affects us all.

Cluster analysis consists of methods for finding groups in data automatically. Most methods have been heuristic and leave open such central questions as: How many clusters are there? Which clustering method should I use? How should I handle outliers? This introduction frames cluster analysis in terms of statistical models, yielding principled estimation, testing and prediction methods, and soundly-based answers to central questions. It develops basic ideas of model-based clustering in an accessible but rigorous way, using extensive real-world data examples and providing R code for many methods, and describes modern developments for high-dimensional data and networks. It explains recent methodological advances, such as Bayesian regularization methods, non-Gaussian model-based clustering, cluster merging, variable selection, semi-supervised classification, clustering of functional data, text and images, and co-clustering. Written for advanced undergraduates and beginning graduate students in data science, researchers, and practitioners, it assumes basic knowledge of multivariate calculus, linear algebra, probability and statistics.

New York Times Bestseller 'Fascinating and deeply disturbing' - Yuval Noah Harari, Guardian Books of the Year 'A manual for the 21st-century citizen... accessible, refreshingly critical, relevant and urgent' - Federica Cocco, Financial Times A former Wall Street quant sounds an alarm on the mathematical models that pervade modern life - and threaten to rip apart our social fabric We live in the age of the algorithm. Increasingly, the decisions that affect our lives - where we go to school, whether we get a loan, how much we pay for insurance - are being made not by humans, but by mathematical models. In theory, this should lead to greater fairness: everyone is judged according to the same rules, and bias is eliminated. And yet, as Cathy O'Neil reveals in this urgent and necessary book, the opposite is true. The models being used today are opaque, unregulated, and incontestable, even when they're wrong. Most troubling, they reinforce discrimination. Tracing the arc of a person's life, O'Neil exposes the black box models that shape our future, both as individuals and as a society. These "weapons of math destruction" score teachers and students, sort CVs, grant or deny loans, evaluate workers, target voters, and monitor our health. O'Neil calls on modellers to take more responsibility for their algorithms and on policy makers to regulate their use. But in the end, it's up to us to become more savvy about the models that govern our lives. This important book empowers us to ask the tough questions, uncover the truth, and demand change.
