My name is David Walonick and I'm a retired statistics
professor from the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul,
Minnesota. I originally wrote Survival
Statistics for my students, but then
realized how important the information was to everyone.
If you're conducting a survey then you
need to learn statistics. If you're marketing a product
or service you need statistics. In fact, in just about
every segment of our society it's important to understand
Statistics has gotten a
easily understand the basic concepts of statistical
analysis. It's not like the old days where you had to
memorize formulas and do a lot of arithmetic.
Statistics focuses on concepts... not
formulas. Sure, the formulas are there for those who want
them, but it's much more important that you know:
- what statistic you
need for a given situation.
- how to interpret a
- how to make a
statement with a statistic
That's what Survival
Statistics is about. It's written in plain
English to teach you the concepts of statistical methods.
It discusses important issues like validity, reliability,
hypotheses, types of data, the basic statistical analysis
techniques, and much more. It has everything you need to
know to conduct a research project.
Here's what a few readers said:
just finished reading your book and I
can say without a doubt that it is
the finest treatment of statistics
that I have encountered in the last
25 years. You have managed to hit all
the key points with selective
elaboration that is just fantastic.
Survival Statistics is now my chief
reference and I am really pleased.
David, Very nice book! You have included
topics from several other areas that really make this one of the most useful references I have seen. I keep it on my computer where ever I go.

Dr. Walonick, I
found your book more useful than the
over $100 business research methods
textbook that my professor was using. I
was able to use your book to put a
survey together, do the research and
write my paper with ease. I shared my
copy of Survival Statistics with my
professor and I recommended she use your
book. Consequently, I have graduated and
my professor is using your book for her
Summer class. Thanks!

Would you like to see a sample from Survival Statistics?
One chapter of the book is
available as a free tutorial and will teach you how to
design and conduct a survey. The tutorial is packed with
information. My favorite section is "The Meaning of
Significance." Actually, this section is from a
different chapter of Survival Statistics,
but I thought it was so important that I included it in
this tutorial. You see, it took me many years to figure out
what statisticians really meant when they used the words
"statistically significant"...and you'll learn
it in five minutes...guaranteed!
