Statistics for anthropology
Madrigal, Lorena
Cambridge : Cambridge University Press, 2012
List of partial statistical tables -- Preface -- Introduction to statistics and simple descriptive statistics -- The first step in data analysis: summarizing and displaying data : computing descriptive statistics -- Probability and statistics -- Hypothesis testing and estimation -- The difference between two means -- The analysis of variance (ANOVA) -- Non-parametric tests for the comparison of samples -- The analysis of frequencies -- Correlation analysis -- Simple linear regression -- Advanced topics in regression analysis.

"Anthropology as a discipline is rapidly becoming more quantitative, and anthropology students are now required to develop sophisticated statistical skills. This book provides students of anthropology with a clear, step-by-step guide to univariate statistical methods, demystifying the aspects that are often seen as difficult or impenetrable. Explaining the central role of statistical methods in anthropology, and using only anthropological examples, the book provides a solid footing in statistical techniques. Beginning with basic descriptive statistics, this new edition also covers more advanced methods such as analyses of frequencies and variance, and simple and multiple regression analysis with dummy and continuous variables. It addresses commonly encountered problems such as small samples and non-normality. Each statistical technique is accompanied by clearly worked examples, and the chapters end with practice problem sets"--

Drawn to see : drawing as an ethnographic method
Causey Andrew, 1957- author
Toronto : University of Toronto Press, 2017
In a world that increasingly requires researchers to skim, scan, glance, and browse, we might wonder how well we actually see. And if we do manage to see, why do we usually translate seeing and thinking into words? What would happen if researchers were to draw what they see? In this combined how-to-see / how-to-draw manual, Andrew Causey offers insights, inspiration, practical techniques, and encouragement for social scientists interested in exploring drawing as an alternative method of translating what they "see" during their research. Designed for those with no drawing experience, it includes a set of carefully calibrated exercises, grounded in the context of the social sciences, to provide comfort and confidence with drawing, as well as an understanding of the unique possibilities that drawing might offer contemporary research methods.
