The sixth edition of **Business Statistics** for Contemporary deciding continues the complete, student-friendly pedagogy to present and explain **business statistics** topics. With the sixth edition, the author and Wiley still expand the vast ancillary resources available through WileyPLUS with which to enrich the text in helping instructors effectively deliver this material and assisting students in their learning.

The resources available to both the trainer and therefore the student through WileyPLUS have greatly expanded since the fifth edition was launched; and since of this, an attempt has been made within the sixth edition to more fully integrate the text with WileyPLUS.

Similar to 5th edition, in the sixth edition, these same 19 chapters have been organized into five units in order that chapters might be grouped into smaller clusters.

The nonparametric and therefore the analysis of categorical data chapters are moved further toward the rear of the text in order that the regression chapters are often presented earlier. The decision trees that were introduced within the fifth edition to supply the scholar with a taxonomy of inferential techniques have been improved and expanded in the sixth edition.

Simplified the decision trees for parametric techniques and made the choice trees easier for college kids to decipher. The amount of databases related to the text has been expanded from seven to nine, and one among the fifth edition databases has been replaced.

All of the features of the fifth edition are retained, updated, and altered as needed to reflect today’s business world within the sixth edition. In the sixth edition, as with the fifth edition, there are 17 high-quality video tutorials with the author explaining key difficult topics and demonstrating the way to work problems from challenging sections of the text.

The text is written with the idea that the scholar features a college algebra mathematical background. No calculus is employed within the presentation of fabric within the text. An underlying philosophical approach to the text is that each statistical tool presented in the book has some business application. While the text contains statistical rigor, it is written in order that the scholar can readily see that the right application of **statistics within the business** world goes hand-in-hand with good decision making. In this edition, statistics are presented as a way for converting data into useful information which will be wont to assist the business administrator in making more thoughtful, information-based decisions.

Thus, the text presents **business statistics** as “value added” tools within the process of converting data into useful information.
