The Chicago Guide to Writing about Multivariate Analysis is the must-have resource for anyone who needs to communicate complex research results. It continues to be the only book that brings together all of the steps involved in communicating findings based on multivariate analysis—finding data, creating variables, estimating statistical models, calculating overall effects, organizing ideas, designing tables and charts, and writing prose—in a single volume. This comprehensive coverage combined with Jane E. Miller’s twelve fundamental principles for quantitative writing, will empower readers to communicate their findings clearly and effectively.

·         Extended learning resources including podcasts, slide sets, and spreadsheets
·         Updated study guide with problem sets and solutions that will help readers apply skills from the book to their own projects and courses
