Book Description

This introductory textbook explores the role of research in health care and focuses in particular on the importance of organizing and describing research data using basic statistics. The goal of the text is to teach students how to analyze data and present the results of evidence-based data analysis. Based on the commonly-used SPSS software, a comprehensive range of statistical techniques—both parametric and non-parametric—are presented and explained. Examples are given from nursing, health administration, and health professions, followed by an opportunity for students to immediately practice the technique.

This was a required textbook for a beginning statistics class. Though it is probably just what is needed for some on an advanced level it is not easy to read or use for a beginner. What is helpful is that there are lots of tables and charts to help explain different aspects is statistics including step by step instructions on how to use SPSS.

--Martha Lenderts, Amazon Customer Reviews

This text has great explanations of the various tests used in statistical analysis. The questions are very informative and the explanations are concise and to the point - not long and drawn out like most statistical text books. I highly recommend for any statistical class, especially Public Health.
