The first is to provide an introduction to how to use the Statistical Package for the Social Sciences (SPSS) for data analysis. The text includes step-by-step instructions, along with screen shots and videos, to conduct various procedures in SPSS to perform statistical data analysis.

    The Good Drone: How Social Movements Democratize Surveillance (MIT Press), by Austin Choi-Fitzpatrick, demonstrates that this technology – which is mostly associated with covert surveillance and remote warfare – has also served as a vital tool for activists, social movements, and defenders of human rights to effect pro-social campaigns.   Statistical Analysis "In Focus" supports users of Gregory J. Privitera's Statistics for the Behavioral Sciences, Third Edition who work with a statistical program other than SPSS or Excel. Three standalone parts, each dedicated to R, SAS, and Stata, serve as step-by-step guides for completing the "In Focus" exercises in Privitera's core text.

    Read this book on Questia. CHAPTER 1 has identified two types of argument relating to the production of official statistics and their use by social scientists: that concerned with the making and recording of observations and that concerned with the processing and assembling of statistical materials out of observers' reports. Sociologists have been among the earliest users of these visualization tools, particularly with network analysis. The earliest “interactive” network tools were literally peg-boards and rubber-bands (see Figure 8, and Freeman ) or pins-and-strings. 1 Interactive exploration of social network data has obviously been made much easier.
