Das Gebiet statistischer Graphiken hat in den letzten 20 Jahren immer mehr an Bedeutung gewonnen. Ein Grund hierfür ist in der Verbreitung explorativer Methoden zu sehen. Ein weiterer entscheidender Faktor ist die gestiegene Leistungsfähigkeit der Computer in den letz ten zwei Dekaden. Zunehmende Rechenleistung der Hardware und die dadurch entstandenen softwaretechnischen Möglichkeiten haben die statistischen Graphiken nicht nur einem brei ten Anwenderkreis zugänglich gemacht, sondern ebenso die Entstehung bisher nicht gekannter Möglichkeiten graphischen Arbeitens bewirkt. Ein Teil dieses Buches wird sich daher neuen Arten statistischer Graphiken und deren Realisationsmöglichkeiten mit dem Computer wid men. In Kapitell wird die Rolle der graphischen Darstellung innerhalb der Statistik beleuchtet. Die Aufgabe statistischer Graphiken ist je nach Teilgebiet der Statistik unterschiedlicher Natur. So steht einmal die Präsentation von Daten, ein anderes Mal die Datenanalyse im Vordergrund. Die Charakteristiken graphischer Darstellungen ergeben sich aus der Art der visuellen Infor mationsverarbeitung beim Menschen. Auf die einzelnen Faktoren menschlicher Informations verarbeitung wird in Kapitel 2 eingegangen. Die graphische Wahrnehmung kristallisiert sich hierbei als Basis für die Beurteilung und Konzeption statistischer Graphiken heraus. Nur eine genaue Vorstellung über die Vorgänge beim Betrachten einer Graphik kann Aufschluß über die Vor-und Nachteile graphischer Darstellungen geben. Die Bemühungen iIi Richtung einer Standardisierung statistischer Graphiken stellen einen weiteren Schwerpunkt dieses Kapitels dar. Der Sinn solcher Bemühungen und grundsätzli che Anforderungen an graphische Darstellungen werden in diesem Zusammenhang zusätzlich erörtert.

The Basic Practice of Statistics has become a bestselling textbook by focusing on how statistics are gathered, analyzed, and applied to real problems and situations—and by confronting student anxieties about the course's relevance and difficulties head on. With David Moore's pioneering "data analysis" approach (emphasizing statistical thinking over computation), engaging narrative and case studies, current problems and exercises, and an accessible level of mathematics, there is no more effective textbook for showing students what working statisticians do and what accurate interpretations of data can reveal about the world we live in. In the new edition, you will once again see how everything fits together. As always, Moore's text offers balanced content, beginning with data analysis, then covering probability and inference in the context of statistics as a whole. It provides a wealth of opportunities for students to work with data from a wide range of disciplines and real-world settings, emphasizing the big ideas of statistics in the context of learning specific skills used by professional statisticians. Thoroughly updated throughout, the new edition offers new content, features, cases, data sources, and exercises, plus new media support for instructors and students—including the latest version of the widely-adopted StatsPortal. The full picture of the contemporary practice of statistics has never been so captivatingly presented to an uninitiated audience.
