Like its predecessors, this edition stresses intuitive understanding of principles rather than learning by mathematical proof. Provides broad coverage of statistical procedures used in all the health science disciplines. This version contains a greater emphasis on computer applications (MINITAB command instruction is demonstrated) for most of the statistical techniques. New to this edition: computer printouts demonstrating the SASŪ software package, determination of sample size to control Type I and Type II errors, the Fisher Exact Test, the Repeated Measures Design, the Mantel-Haenszel Statistic. More than 250 of the examples and exercises are based on actual data obtained directly from researchers in the health field and from reports of research findings published in health sciences literature.
