Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0198524366, Hardcover)Discrete or count data arise in experiments where the outcomes are countable and classified into unique, non-overlapping categories. This book describes the statistical models for evaluating such data. It provides an introduction for graduate students and a concise review for practitioners. The book provides the first in-depth coverage of a number of topics, including the negative multinormal distribution, the many forms of hypergeometric distribution, and coordinate-free models. A detailed treatment of the issues of sample size and power are given in terms of exact inference and asymptotic, non-central chi-squared approximations. Throughout the text, the author interweaves standard statistical software, particularly SAS, with practical examples and current theory.

This revised edition illustrates the statistical analysis of data using computer programs in SAS, a widely used software package in the health sciences. Many numerical examples are provided to illustrate the methods and these are discussed along with the corresponding computer output. Several new datasets are included, mostly from the health and medical sector. - ;Discrete or count data arise in experiments where the outcome variables are the numbers of individuals classified into unique, non-overlapping categories. This revised edition describes the statistical models used in the analysis and.
