From the Back Cover:

Statistics and Data Analysis for Nursing Research 2e

 

Denise F. Polit, PdD

 

Users praised the accessibility, clarity, and user-friendliness of the first edition of Statistics and Data Analysis for Nursing Research. Now, the push for evidence-based practice (EBP) in nursing and health care makes this new edition timely.  The style and practical emphasis of the first edition have been retained, but important innovations have also been introduced, making it even easier to embark on a professional pathway that includes statistical analysis. As in the first edition, the content includes descriptive statistics, bivariate inferential statistics, and many widely-used multivariate statistics. It assumes virtually no prior knowledge of statistics.
