Book description
"...a very useful resource for courses in nonparametric statistics in which the emphasis is on applications rather than on theory. It also deserves a place in libraries of all institutions where introductory statistics courses are taught." CHOICE
This Second Edition presents a practical and understandable approach that enhances and expands the statistical toolset for readers. This book includes:
New coverage of the sign test and the KolmogorovSmirnov twosample test in an effort to offer a logical and natural progression to statistical power
SPSS (Version 21) software and updated screen captures to demonstrate how to perform and recognize the steps in the various procedures
Data sets and oddnumbered solutions provided in an appendix, and tables of critical values
Supplementary material to aid in reader comprehension, which includes: narrated videos and screen animations with stepbystep instructions on how to follow the tests using SPSS; online decision trees to help users determine the needed type of statistical test; and additional solutions not found within the book.
