Introduction to Statistics: The Nonparametric Way

Introduction to Statistics: The Nonparametric Way Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The present text introduces the student to the basic ideas of estimation and hypothesis testing early in the course after a rather brief introduction to data organization and some simple ideas about probability. Estimation and hypothesis testing are discussed in terms of the two-sample problem. The book exploits nonparametric ideas that rely on nothing more complicated than sample differences Y-X, referred to as elementary estimates, to define the Wilcoxon-Mann-Whitney test statistics and the related point and interval estimates. The ideas behind elementary estimates are then applied to the one-sample problem and to linear regression and rank correlation. Discussion of the Kruskal-Wallis and Friedman procedures for the k-sample problem rounds out the nonparametric coverage. The concluding chapters provide a discussion of Chi-square tests for the analysis of categorical data and introduce the student to the analysis of binomial data including the computation of power and sample size. Most chapters in the book have an appendix discussing relevant Minitab commands.

Book News Annotation:

Text for an introductory course for non-majors exploits nonparametric ideas and treatments, followed by the corresponding classical normal- theory treatment. Most of the problems can be solved with a basic calculator, but most chapters have an appendix discussing relevant commands in Minitab Release 6.1 for MS-DOS microcomputers.
