Exploring data tables, trends, and shapes by David C Hoaglin ( Book )
19 editions published between 1985 and 2011 in English and held by 900 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
WILEY-INTERSCIENCE PAPERBACK SERIES The Wiley-Interscience Paperback Series consists of selected books that have been made more accessible to consumers in an effort to increase global appeal and general circulation. With these new unabridged softcover volumes, Wiley hopes to extend the lives of these works by making them available to future generations of statisticians, mathematicians, and scientists. " Exploring Data Tables, Trends, and Shapes (EDTTS) was written as a companion volume to the same editors' book, Understanding Robust and Exploratory Data Analysis (UREDA). Whereas UREDA is a collection of exploratory and resistant methods of estimation and display, EDTTS goes a step further, describing multivariate and more complicated techniques ... I feel that the authors have made a very significant contribution in the area of multivariate nonparametric methods. This book [is] a valuable source of reference to researchers in the area." - Technometrics "This edited volume ... provides an important theoretical and philosophical extension to the currently popular statistical area of Exploratory Data Analysis, which seeks to reveal structure, or simple descriptions, in data ... It is ... an important reference volume which any statistical library should consider seriously." - The Statistician This newly available and affordably priced paperback version of Exploring Data Tables, Trends, and Shapes presents major advances in exploratory data analysis and robust regression methods and explains the techniques, relating them to classical methods. The book addresses the role of exploratory and robust techniques in the overall data-analytic enterprise, and it also presents new methods such as fitting by organized comparisons using the square combining table and identifying extreme cells in a sizable contingency table with probabilistic and exploratory approaches. The book features a chapter on using robust regression in less technical language than available elsewhere. Conceptual support for each technique is also provided

Planning and analysis of observational studies by William G Cochran ( Book )
8 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 608 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

Inference and disputed authorship: The Federalist by Frederick Mosteller ( Book )
16 editions published between 1954 and 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 489 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 once-controversial 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."--BOOK JACKET

Quality of life and technology assessment ( Book )
8 editions published between 1989 and 1990 in English and held by 458 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 quality-of-life 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 quality-of-life measures in technology assessment. Quality-of-life measures in liver transplantation. Quality-of-life measures and methods used to study antihypertensive medications, The use of Qualityof-life measures in private sector. Assessing quality of life: Measures and utility. Applications of quality-of-life measures and areas for cooperative research
