Statistics for Health Care Professionals: Working with Excel (second edition) is written in a clear, easily followed style keyed to the powerful statistical tool, Microsoft Excel 2007. It introduces the use of statistics applicable to health administration, health policy, public health, health information management, and other professions, emphasizing the logic of probability and statistical analysis in all areas. Coverage includes data acquisition, data display, basics of probability, data distributions, confidence limits and hypothesis testing, statistical tests for categorical data, tests for related and unrelated data, analysis of variance, simple linear regression, multiple regression, and analysis with a dichotomous categorical dependent variable. A glossary and section-by-section review questions round out this uniquely comprehensive and accessible text.
