The third edition of this text reflects changes in the computing environment that have transformed the way statistical analyses are performed. New material on probability appears early in the text, and there are new sections on odds ratios, ratio and difference estimations, repeated measure analysis, and logistic regression. New examples and exercises, many from the field of health sciences, have been added, and there are now printouts of computer analyses on all complex procedures. As in earlier editions, emphasis is on selecting the proper statistical procedure and interpreting results. The text is suitable for graduate students in statistical methods. Dowdy is retired from West Virginia University. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
