A comprehensive guide to statistical hypothesis testing with examples in SAS and R
When analyzing datasets the following questions often arise:
Is there a short hand procedure for a statistical test available in SAS or R?
If so, how do I use it?
If not, how do I program the test myself?
This book answers these questions and provides an overview of the most common statistical test problems in a comprehensive way, making it easy to find and perform an appropriate statistical test.
A general summary of statistical test theory is presented, along with a basic description for each test, including the necessary prerequisites, assumptions, the formal test problem and the test statistic. Examples in both SAS and R are provided, along with program code to perform the test, resulting output and remarks explaining the necessary program parameters.
Provides examples in both SAS and R for each test presented.
Looks at the most common statistical tests, displayed in a clear and easy to follow way.
Supported by a supplementary website
