Overview

The success of comparative scientific studies, according to Dr. Robert Kuehl, depends upon effective research design that clearly defines objectives and chooses the appropriate statistical design and analysis to meet those objectives. This research design process includes development of the research hypothesis, choice of the treatment design to answer it, and choice of the experiment design that facilitates efficient data collection. To further this philosophy, Kuehl has written Statistical Principles of Research Design and Analysis. Throughout the book, worked examples (almost all of which are taken from actual research studies performed in the agricultural, biological, industrial, engineering, manufacturing, and medical sciences) are illustrated with printouts of analysis of variance tables from popular computer programs such as SAS, SPSS, MINITAB, or BMPD. The book is divided into three parts: first, it traces the role statistical science plays in the planning stages of a research study; then, it delineates treatment designs, their analyses, and interpretations in the simplest setting of completely randomized designs; and lastly, it presents development of experiments and designs from the simplest to the most complex and specialized blocking structures.
