This unique volume addresses the inadequacies of basic statistical methods that standard textbooks tend to ignore. The author introduces new procedures with accompanying tables that illustrate the practicality of the methods. Concentrating on basic experimental designs that are central to research in the social sciences, Wilcox describes new nonparametric techniques, two-way ANOVA designs, and new results related to the analysis of covariance and repeated measure design. This book serves as the ideal reference and supplement to standard texts by making the statistical advances of the last thirty years accessible to graduate students and researchers.
"Wilcox provides a clear rationale for using the techniques and provides an understandable proof or derivation for many procedures….Individuals interested in further study of the techniques presented will find the references an extremely valuable resource….graduate students who are studying statistical methods and are searching for research ideas will find Wilcox's book filled with suggestions for additional investigations."
