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.

Statistics has gotten a bum rap!

Everyone can 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.

Survival 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 statistic
  • 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:

Dr. Walonick, 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!
