The importance of nonparametric methods in modern statistics hasgrown dramatically since their inception in the mid-1930s.Requiring few or no assumptions about the populations from whichdata are obtained, they have emerged as the preferred methodologyamong statisticians and researchers performing data analysis.Today, these highly efficient techniques are being applied to anever-widening variety of experimental designs in the social,behavioral, biological, and physical sciences.

This long-awaited Second Edition of Myles Hollander and Douglas A.Wolfe's successful Nonparametric Statistical Methods meets theneeds of a new generation of users, with completely up-to-datecoverage of this important statistical area. Like its highlyacclaimed predecessor, the revised edition, along with itscompanion ftp site, aims to equip students with the conceptual andtechnical skills necessary to select and apply the appropriateprocedures for a given situation. An extensive array of examplesdrawn from actual experiments illustrates clearly how to usenonparametric approaches to handle one- or two-sample location anddispersion problems, dichotomous data, and one-way and two-waylayout problems. Rewritten and updated, this Second Edition nowincludes new or expanded coverage of:
* Nonparametric regression methods.
* The bootstrap.
* Contingency tables and the odds ratio.
* Life distributions and survival analysis.
* Nonparametric methods for experimental designs.
* More procedures, real-world data sets, and problems.
* Illustrated examples using Minitab and StatXact.

An ideal text for an upper-level undergraduate or first-yeargraduate course, this text is also an invaluable source forprofessionals who want to keep abreast of the latest developmentswithin this dynamic branch of modern statistics.
