Overview

Bausell (U. of Maryland School of Medicine) and Li (data analyst, Puget Sound Health Care System, Seattle, Washington) argue for the importance of scientists carrying out their own statistical studies rather than assigning this task to statisticians. Their text is designed to teach the power analytic process to those with a basic knowledge of summary statistics and normal distribution. Initial chapters provide guidelines for the analysis with numerous specific analyses described in subsequent chapters. A full selection of power templates and tables are included. Annotation c.
