As the applications of statistical techniques have increased, studies that investigate the problems faced while teaching statistics have increased as well. However, most problems faced in statistics teaching are not due to cognitive deficiencies but may be due to attitudinal factors such as statistics anxiety. In the present study, the relationship between statistics anxiety and attitudes towards statistics anxiety was investigated by canonical correlation techniques. The sample of the study consisted of 95 seniors and 55 graduate students in social sciences. Students answered the Statistical Anxiety Rating Scale and Attitudes Towards Statistics scale. Results showed that seniors and graduate students did not differ significantly in terms of the study variables and that statistics anxiety and attitudes towards statistics were related.
