Summary:
"There is no compact statement of principles acknowledged by statisticians, of the methods common to most branches of statistical work, of the artifices developed for handling and simplifying the raw material, and of the mathematical theorems by the use of which the results of investigations may be interpreted. This book forms an attempt to supply this want, so far as can be done without undue length. No place has been given in it to the history of statistics, and it does not contain any summary of the main groups of statistics extant; several tables, drawn from a wide range of subjects, are given, but only to illustrate particular methods, and their choice has been determined by their suitability for this purpose. Considerable space has been allotted to the subjects of Averages and Diagrams, because their use is universal, and, while their principles and technique are simple, their application is often misunderstood. The treatment throughout is intended to be suitable for those whose mathematics have not been carried to any height or have become rusty from disuse. With this view, when mathematical symbols were unavoidable, the preliminary hypotheses have been first discussed without algebraic notation and at some length, and those proofs have been chosen which require the minimum mathematical knowledge rather than those which lead most directly to the result"--Preface.
