Praise for previous editions:
"... a classic with a long history." - Statistical Papers
"The fact that the first edition of this book was published in 1971 ... [is] testimony to the book's success over a long period." - ISI Short Book Reviews
"... one of the best books available for a theory course on nonparametric statistics. ... very well written and organized ... recommended for teachers and graduate students." - Biometrics
"... There is no competitor for this book and its comprehensive development and application of nonparametric methods. Users of one of the earlier editions should certainly consider upgrading to this new edition." - Technometrics
"... Useful to students and research workers ... a good textbook for a beginning graduate-level course in nonparametric statistics." - Journal of the American Statistical Association
Since its first publication in 1971, Nonparametric Statistical Inference has been widely regarded as the source for learning about nonparametrics. The Sixth Edition carries on this tradition and incorporates computer solutions based on R.
Covers the most commonly used nonparametric procedures
States the assumptions, develops the theory behind the procedures, and illustrates the techniques using realistic examples from the social, behavioral, and life sciences
Presents tests of hypotheses, confidence-interval estimation, sample size determination, power, and comparisons of competing procedures
Includes an Appendix of user-friendly tables needed for solutions to all data-oriented examples
Gives examples of computer applications based on R, MINITAB, STATXACT, and SAS
Lists over 100 new references
Nonparametric Statistical Inference, Sixth Edition, has been thoroughly revised and rewritten to make it more readable and reader-friendly.
