Description:

This book covers the most commonly used nonparametric statistical techniques by emphasizing applications rather than theory. Exercises and examples are drawn from various disciplines including agriculture, biology, sociology, education, psychology, medicine, business, geology, and anthropology. The applications of techniques are presented in a step-by-step format that is repeated for all illustrative examples. Concepts are reinforced with many references to statistical literature to show the relevance to real-world problems. Chapters contain references of available computer programs and software packages that apply to methods presented in the book.
