Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

While preserving the clear, accessible style of previous editions, Applied Nonparametric Statistical Methods, Fourth Edition reflects the latest developments in computer-intensive methods that deal with intractable analytical problems and unwieldy data sets.

Reorganized and with additional material, this edition begins with a brief summary of some relevant general statistical concepts and an introduction to basic ideas of nonparametric or distribution-free methods. Designed experiments, including those with factorial treatment structures, are now the focus of an entire chapter. The text also expands coverage on the analysis of survival data and the bootstrap method. The new final chapter focuses on important modern developments, such as large sample methods and computer-intensive applications.

Keeping mathematics to a minimum, this text introduces nonparametric methods to undergraduate students who are taking either mainstream statistics courses or statistics courses within other disciplines. By giving the proper attention to data collection and the interpretation of analyses, it provides a full introduction to nonparametric methods.

Book News Annotation:

The textbook is for undergraduate students making their first foray into nonparametric methods, either in a mainstream statistics course or in service courses for students majoring in other disciplines. It can also be used for self-study or as a reference by professionals in various fields who understand basic statistics but have little acquaintance with nonparametric methods. Like previous revisions since 1989, this edition reflects current levels of computing power and the scope of applying nonparametric or distribution-free methods, especially the tendency to combine them with other methods.

Synopsis:

Maintaining the clear and accessible style of previous editions of this popular textbook, Applied Nonparametric Statistical Methods, Fourth Edition reflects the latest developments in methodology, including treating interactions in factorial structure, repeated measurement problems, and multiple comparison procedure. The book features expanded material on the analysis of censored data and bootstrapping. It also includes various examples with applications in medicine, biology, engineering, and social sciences, and contains numerous exercises and selected solutions. All of the methods presented can be implemented using StatXact, a time-restricted version that is available for download from the Internet.
