Mathematical Statistics
This book presents a detailed description of the development of statistical theory. In the mid twentieth century, the development of mathematical statistics underwent an enduring change, due to the advent of more refined mathematical tools. New concepts like sufficiency, superefficiency, adaptivity etc. motivated scholars to reflect upon the interpretation of mathematical concepts in terms of their real-world relevance. Questions concerning the optimality of estimators, for instance, had remained unanswered for decades, because a meaningful concept of optimality (based on the regularity of the estimators, the representation of their limit distribution and assertions about their concentration by means of Anderson's Theorem) was not yet available. The rapidly developing asymptotic theory provided approximate answers to questions for which non-asymptotic theory had found no satisfying solutions. In four engaging essays, this book presents a detailed description of how the use of mathematical methods stimulated the development of a statistical theory. Primarily focused on methodology, questionable proofs and neglected questions of priority, the book offers an intriguing resource for researchers in theoretical statistics, and can also serve as a textbook for advanced courses in statisticc.

Introductory Statistics
Introductory Statistics, Fourth Edition, reviews statistical concepts and techniques in a manner that will teach students not only how and when to utilize the statistical procedures developed, but also how to understand why these procedures should be used. The text's main merits are the clarity of presentation, contemporary examples and applications from diverse areas, an explanation of intuition, and the ideas behind the statistical methods. Concepts are motivated, illustrated, and explained in a way that attempts to increase one's intuition. To quote from the preface, it is only when a student develops a feel or intuition for statistics that she or he is really on the path toward making sense of data. Ross achieves this goal through a coherent mix of mathematical analysis, intuitive discussions, and examples. Applications and examples refer to real-world issues, such as gun control, stock price models, health issues, driving age limits, school admission ages, use of helmets, sports, scientific fraud, and many others. Examples relating to data mining techniques using the number of Google queries or Twitter tweets are also considered. For this fourth edition, new topical coverage includes sections on Pareto distribution and the 80-20 rule, Benford's law, added material on odds and joint distributions and correlation, logistic regression, A-B testing, and more modern (big data) examples and exercises. Includes new section on Pareto distribution and the 80-20 rule, Benford's law, odds, joint distribution and correlation, logistic regression, A-B testing, and examples from the world of analytics and big dataComprehensive edition that includes the most commonly used statistical software packages (SAS, SPSS, Minitab), ISM, SSM, and an online graphing calculator manualPresents a unique, historical perspective, profiling prominent statisticians and historical events to motivate learning by including interest and contextProvides exercises and examples that help guide the studen

Goverment Statistics
Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 1993 im Fachbereich Statistik, Note: 2, Universität der Bundeswehr München, Neubiberg (Institut für Statistik), Veranstaltung: Geschichte der Statistik, 2 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Der Stellenwert und die Bedeutung einer statistischen Erhebung steht und fällt mit dem Inhalt bzw. dem Themenkomplex, zu dem diese Erhebung zählt. Einer der wichtigsten statistischen Themenkreise ist der, der sich mit politischen Fragen bzw. der Arbeit der Regierung beschäftigt. Die in diesen Statistiken dargestellten Fakten dienen meist als Grundlage für Entscheidungen in der Politik bzw. zur Entschlussfindung der regierenden Partei. Gerade auf diesem Gebiet der Statistik wird klar, wie wichtig heutzutage Statistiken sind, wie sie in das Leben des Einzelnen aber auch in das Leben ganzer Staaten eingreifen. Ob als Basis von Prognosen oder als Grundlage von politischen Programmen, Statistiken sind aus dem täglichen Leben, besonders dem politischen Leben nicht mehr wegzudenken. Deshalb möchte ich in meiner Seminararbeit dieses Thema ein wenig beleuchten und beschäftige mich deshalb mit dem Thema 'Regierungsstatistik'. Hierzu dient als Grundlage ein englischer Text mit dem Titel 'Government Statistics' aus the International Encycopedia of the Social Sciences ( IESS ) London l968 ( l972 2nd edition ). Die Überschrift 'Government Statistics ', welche auch immer wieder im Text auftaucht, wird frei mit dem Ausdruck Regierungsstatistik bzw. Regierungserhebung oder Staatliche Statistik bzw. Erhebung übersetzt. Im zweiten Teil meiner Arbeit werde ich mich mit einer aktuellen Statistik unter Einbeziehung des im Campus Verlag veröffentlichten Buches 'So lügt man mit Statistik ' von Walter Krämer (Frankfurt l99l) auseinandersetzen. An diesem aktuellen Beispiel möchte aufzeigen wie selbstverständlich für uns der Umgang mit Statistiken geworden ist, ohne dass wir uns Gedanken darüber machen, was hinter diesen Zahlen steht und zu welchem Zwec
