May 30, 2003, Medford, New Jersey—Information Today, Inc. (ITI) has announced the publication of Business Statistics on the Web: Find Them Fast—At Little or No Cost, by Paula Berinstein.

In this practical guide, statistics guru Paula Berinstein shows readers how to use the Net to find statistics about companies, markets, and industries; how to organize and present statistics; and how to evaluate them for reliability.

In addition, dozens of extended and short case studies demonstrate the ins and outs of searching for specific numbers and maneuvering around obstacles to find the data you need.

“In business, time is money, and having access to efficient strategies for finding important statistics saves time, saves money, and may just make or save the company or institution,” says Charles Cotton, former Executive Chairman of GlobespanVirata, in the book’s foreword. Cotton adds, “Whether it is a business plan for startup, a marketing plan for a successful company, economic analysis by government and think tanks, or company financials for competitor analysis, sound numbers are critical to our success."
