100 Statistical Tests, Third Edition is the one indispensable guide for users of statistical materials and consumers of statistical information at all levels and across all disciplines.
The work is divided into several sections. In the first we define a number of terms used in carrying out statistical tests, we define the thinking behind statistical testing and indicate how some of the tests can be linked together in an investigation. In the second section we give examples of test procedures and in the third we provide a list of all the 100 Statistical Tests (3rd ed.). The fourth section classifies the tests under a variety of headings. This became necessary when we tried to arrange the tests in some logical sequence. Many such logical sequences are available and, to meet the possible needs of the reader, these cross-reference lists have been provided. The main part of the work describes most commonly used tests currently available to the working statistician. No attempts at proof are given, but an elementary knowledge of statistics should be sufficient to allow the reader to carry out the test. In every case the appropriate formulae are given and where possible we have used schematic diagrams to preclude any ambiguities in notation. Where there has been a conflict of notation between existing textbooks, we have endeavoured to use the most commonly accepted symbols. The next section provides a list of the statistical tables required for the tests followed by the tables themselves, and the last section provides references for further information.
'This is a very valuable book for statisticians and users of statistics. It contains a remarkable number of statistical tests which are currently available and useful for practical purposes' - Statistical Papers This expanded and updated Third Edition of Gopal Kanji's best-selling resource on statistical tests covers all the most commonly used tests with information on how to calculate and interpret results with simple datasets. Each entry begins with a short summary statement about the test's purpose, and contains details of the test objective, the limitations (or assumptions) involved, a brief outline of the method, a worked example and the numerical calculation. This new edition also includes: "A brand new introduction to statistical testing with information to guide the reader through the book so that even non-statistics students can find information quickly and easily "Real-world explanations of how and when to use each test with examples drawn from wide range of disciplines.
