› Find signed collectible books: 'The Analysis of Contingency Tables 2nd Edition (Paperback) (Chapman & Hall/CRC Monographs on Statistics & Applied Probability)'
Much of the data collected in medicine and the social sciences is categorical, for example, sex, marital status, blood group, whether a smoker or not and so on, rather than interval-scaled. Frequently the researcher collecting such data is interested in the relationships or associations between pairs, or between a set of such categorical variables; often the data is displayed in the form of a contingency table for example, smoker versus non-smoker against death from lung cancer or death from some other cause. This text gives a comprehensive account of the analysis of such tables, written at a level suitable for the applied researcher. The first edition of "The Analysis of Contingency Tables" arose from Professor A.E. Maxwell's earlier text, "Analysing Qualitative Data". In this new edition, more material is included that those methods which have developed over the last decade or so, for example, logistic regression models for tables with ordered categories and for response variables with more than two categories. A brief account is given of the increasingly important technique, correspondence analysis. The methods of analysis described in this book should be relevant to research workers and graduate students dealing with data from surveys, particularly in the area of psychiatry, social sciences and psychology.

› Find signed collectible books: 'Chance Rules: An Informal Guide to Probability, Risk and Statistics'
Chance affects all our lives. From the genes we inherit to the environment into which we are born, life is a gamble. It is chance that decrees who becomes an overnight millionaire from winning a lottery and who ends up the victim of a fatal air crash. And in nature electrons and the like obey only the laws of probability rather than those of Newton. In Chance Rules aspects of chance, risk and probability, from simple games involving the toss of a coin, to the use of clinical trials in medicine and the evaluation of alternative therapies, are explored in an informal and hopefully entertaining manner. The book is aimed at all those who would like to discover more about chance and the way it operates in a variety of settings. Professor Brian S. Everitt is the Head of the Biostatistics and Computing Department, Institute of Psychiatry, Kings College, London. He is the author of about 70 journal papers and 30 books on statistics.

Cluster analysis comprises a range of methods for classifying multivariate data into subgroups. By organizing multivariate data into such subgroups, clustering can help reveal the characteristics of any structure or patterns present. These techniques have proven useful in a wide range of areas such as medicine, psychology, market research and bioinformatics.
This fifth edition of the highly successful Cluster Analysis includes coverage of the latest developments in the field and a new chapter dealing with finite mixture models for structured data.
Real life examples are used throughout to demonstrate the application of the theory, and figures are used extensively to illustrate graphical techniques. The book is comprehensive yet relatively non-mathematical, focusing on the practical aspects of cluster analysis.
Key Features:
" Presents a comprehensive guide to clustering techniques, with focus on the practical aspects of cluster analysis.
" Provides a thorough revision of the fourth edition, including new developments in clustering longitudinal data and examples from bioinformatics and gene studies
" Updates the chapter on mixture models to include recent developments and presents a new chapter on mixture modeling for structured data.
Practitioners and researchers working in cluster analysis and data analysis will benefit from this book.

› Find signed collectible books: 'The Encyclopaedic Companion to Medical Statistics'
During the last twenty years statistical methodology has become of central importance in research studies in medicine and also in day-to-day clinical practice. The medical literature is now liberally punctuated not only with relatively routine statistical terms such as p-value, t-test, confidence interval, and correlation, but also with more esoteric items such as hazard function, multilevel model, generalized estimating equations and crossover design. Consequently researchers in medicine and clinicians who are not primarily statisticians need to have a source that provides readable accounts of these terms so that they can understand at least the essence of the statistical aspects of both the design and analysis of a reported investigation. The Encyclopedic Companion to Medical Statistics is that source, containing readable accounts of over 500 statistical topics central to current medical research, with each entry being written by an expert in the field. Examples and graphical material supplement the written material in many entries, and extensive cross-referencing sign posts the reader to other entries that are likely to be relevant.

Statistics play a major role in psychological research. However, there is no text which bridges the gap between the very general introductory books and the highly technical research-level studies. Making Sense of Statistics in Psychology fills this need, with the added advantages of examples and data sets relevant to actual problems in behavioral science; an emphasis on graphical presentation; and a focus on computer methods rather than basic arithmetic. A unique feature is the collection of challenging data sets, the majority from actual psychological research. Many of these data sets are also stored on the disk that accompanies the book, thus allowing students to run both the analyses described and their own attempts at extending them. It is also ideal for more experienced researchers who want a quick reference or refresher on statistics.

› Find signed collectible books: 'Statistics for Psychologists: An Intermediate Course'
Built around a problem solving theme, this book extends the intermediate and advanced student's expertise to more challenging situations that involve applying statistical methods to real-world problems. Data relevant to these problems are collected and analyzed to provide useful answers.
Building on its central problem-solving theme, a large number of data sets arising from real problems are contained in the text and in the exercises provided at the end of each chapter. Answers, or hints to providing answers, are provided in an appendix.
Concentrating largely on the established SPSS and the newer S-Plus statistical packages, the author provides a short, end-of-chapter section entitled Computer Hints that helps the student undertake the analyses reported in the chapter using these statistical packages.
