What do you do when you realize that the data set from the study that you have just completed violates the sample size or other requirements needed to apply parametric statistics? Nonparametric Statistics for Health Care Research by Marjorie A. Pett was developed for such scenarios—research undertaken with limited funds, often using a small sample size, with the primary objective of improving client care and obtaining better client outcomes. Covering the most commonly used nonparametric statistical techniques available in statistical packages and on open-resource statistical websites, this well-organized and accessible Second Edition helps readers, including those beyond the health sciences field, to understand when to use a particular nonparametric statistic, how to generate and interpret the resulting computer printouts, and how to present the results in table and text format.

Guided by problems that frequently arise in actual practice, James Higgins’ book presents a wide array of nonparametric methods of data analysis that researchers will find useful. It discusses a variety of nonparametric methods and, wherever possible, stresses the connection between methods. For instance, rank tests are introduced as special cases of permutation tests applied to ranks. The author provides coverage of topics not often found in nonparametric textbooks, including procedures for multivariate data, multiple regression, multi-factor analysis of variance, survival data, and curve smoothing. This truly modern approach teaches non-majors how to analyze and interpret data with nonparametric procedures using today’s computing technology.
