Summary

Gone are the days when researchers and students were forced to search through journals for the best way to construct a table of results.

Updated to reflect current standards in reporting and graphic displays, Presenting Your Findings: A Practical Guide for Creating Tables, Sixth Edition, provides invaluable guidance on the proper table format for a wide range of statistical analyses in an engaging and accessible format.

The authors have included statistics commonly used in analyses to make the book as useful as possible for researchers and students and have organized the chapters according to the complexity of the statistic. Each chapter is devoted to a different statistic and provides a variety of examples of how data could best be displayed.

Included for each statistic is a "Play It Safe" table that illustrates the most comprehensive formatting options. This definitive resource for how to build tables will eliminate editorial drudgery and free up your time for more gainful pursuits. The concept of "Play It Safe" tables will save researchers hundreds of hours of time. The table illustrations are clear and precise depending on the focus of the data to be presented. The few words that are written prior to presenting a table are helpful in clarifying the data contained in the tables.
