Statistical Power Analysis is a nontechnical guide to power analysis in research planning that provides users of applied statistics with the tools they need for more effective analysis. The Second Edition includes:
* a chapter covering power analysis in set correlation and multivariate methods;
* a chapter considering effect size, psychometric reliability, and the efficacy of "qualifying" dependent variables and;
* expanded power and sample size tables for multiple regression/correlation.
"…provides a very convenient source for formulas and tables to compute power in some common analyses….the excellent writing allows lending the book and being comfortable in expecting the scientist to use the book for power calculations with little assistance."
"This is the second edition of work that has become a minor classic. It ranks as a required reference for research grant applications in the social sciences….It provides a much-needed reference for those not as numerically proficient as many JASA readers….overall the book is clearly written."
—Journal of the American Statistical Association
"…provides readers who apply statistical analyses to their data with descriptions of the rationale for each of several procedures as well as the steps in computation separately and does so in a clearly written style."
