Planning and analysis of observational studies by
William G Cochran(
Book
)
10 editions published between 1983 and 2008 in English and held by 544 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Treats studies, primarily in human populations, that show casual effects of certain agents, procedures, treatment or programs. Deals with the difficulties that comparative observational studies have because of bias in their design and analysis. Systematically considers the many sources of bias and discusses how care in matching or adjustment of results can reduce the effects of bias in these investigations

Stochastic models for learning by
Robert R Bush(
Book
)
25 editions published between 1955 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 540 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The object of this book is to contribute to the study of learningone of the many fields of psychology. A possible probabilistic framework or model for analyzing data from a variety of experiments on animal and human learning is presented. This model is described in general terms and is applied to a number of experiments. The stress is on the viewpoint that learning is probabilistic or stochasticthat events change the probabilities of the various responses. The book is divided into two main parts. The first presents the general model, describes many of its formal properties, and considers a number of special cases. The second part applies the model to a number of experiments on learning and treats the statistical problems of estimating parameters and measuring goodness of fit. The mathematics used is given in detail in an elementary manner. Serious mathematical difficulties are avoided by Monte Carlo or statrat trials that simulate learning experiments by means of routines based on random numbers. Statrat trials facilitate the comparison of actual observations with the model. Several special tables will help the reader apply the model to his own experiments"Jacket.

20 editions published between 1954 and 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 491 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The 1964 publication of Inference and Disputed Authorship made the cover of Time magazine and the attention of academics and the public alike for its use of statistical methodology to solve one of American history's most notorious questions: the disputed authorship of the Federalist Papers." "Back in print for a new generation of readers, this classic volume applies mathematics, including the oncecontroversial Bayesian analysis, into the heart of a literary and historical problem by studying frequently used words in the texts. The reissue of this landmark book will be welcomed by anyone interested in the juncture of history, political science, and authorship."Jacket

Fundamentals of exploratory analysis of variance by
David C Hoaglin(
Book
)
13 editions published between 1991 and 2009 in English and held by 433 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The analysis of variance is presented as an exploratory component of data analysis, while retaining the customary least squares fitting methods. Balanced data layouts are used to reveal key ideas and techniques for exploration. The approach emphasizes both the individual observations and the separate parts that the analysis produces. Most chapters include exercises and the appendices give selected percentage points of the Gaussian, t, F chisquared and studentized range distributions

Quality of life and technology assessment by Institute of Medicine Staff(
Book
)
11 editions published between 1989 and 1990 in English and held by 247 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In fields as diverse as health technology assessment, health care quality assurance, and health services research, the hunt for reliable and valid measures of health outcomes intensified greatly in the 1980s. At the same time, the concept of health status expanded to encompass "quality of life." Neither health status nor quality of life is a completely developed concept; neither has behind it a body of literature that fully documents the range or quality of usable measures and instruments. This monograph selectively surveys the qualityoflife field, offering examples of the use of these types of measures in technology assessment and related applications. Particular attention is given to their use in pharmaceutical trials, where they have received the broadest exposure. Contents: Conceptual background and issues in quality of life. The use of qualityoflife measures in technology assessment. Qualityoflife measures in liver transplantation. Qualityoflife measures and methods used to study antihypertensive medications, The use of Qualityoflife measures in private sector. Assessing quality of life: Measures and utility. Applications of qualityoflife measures and areas for cooperative research
