Hoboken, NJ: John Wiley & Sons (ISBN 978-1-119-55152-2/hbk; 978-1-119-55158-4/ebook). xii, 497 p. (2019).
Publisher’s description: Applied statistics covers both the theory and the application of modern statistical and mathematical modelling techniques to applied problems in industry, public services, commerce, and research. It proceeds from a strong theoretical background, but it is practically oriented to develop one’s ability to tackle new and non-standard problems confidently. Taking a practical approach to applied statistics, this user-friendly guide teaches readers how to use methods of statistics and experimental design without going deep into the theory.
The book includes chapters that cover R package sampling procedures, analysis of variance, point estimation, and more. It follows on the heels of Rasch and Schott’s Mathematical Statistics via that book’s theoretical background – taking the lessons learned from there to another level with this book’s addition of instructions on how to employ the methods using R. But there are two important chapters not mentioned in the theoretical back ground as Generalised Linear Models and Spatial Statistics.
Offers a practical over theoretical approach to the subject of applied statistics
Provides a pre-experimental as well as post-experimental approach to applied statistics
Features classroom tested material
Applicable to a wide range of people working in experimental design and all empirical sciences
Includes 300 different procedures with R and examples with R-programs for the analysis and for determining minimal experimental sizes
The book will appeal to experimenters, statisticians, mathematicians, and all scientists using statistical procedures in the natural sciences, medicine, and psychology amongst others.
