Principles of Statistical Data Handling
- Fred Davidson - University of Illinois, USA

"Have you ever read and said to yourself, ‘Boy, I wish I had that back then?’ In the area of data handling and manipulation, this is that book."
"Principles of Statistical Data Handling deals with the most neglected aspects of implementing a quantitative research design, that is, preparing the data for statistical analysis. Because this part of the process is so often neglected, it is the most common source of trouble when a quantitative research project crashes, produces gibberish, and has to be done all over again. Remarkably, the author writes an interesting and easy-to-read book on what might seem an irredeemably dreary and technical topic. I will recommend this book to almost every one of my students who plans to do a dissertation using quantitative data."
