Summary
"Although many graduate students and researchers have had course work in statistics, they sometimes find themselves stumped as to how to proceed with a particular set of data. In these situations, it is common to turn to a colleague with much experience fielding quantitative questions. When such a colleague is not available, Your Statistical Consultant can become your resource for introducing, describing, and making recommendations regarding thorny or confusing statistical issues. Written to be responsive to a wide range of inquiries and levels of expertise, this book is flexibly organized so readers can either read it sequentially or turn directly to the sections that correspond to their concerns and questions."--BOOK JACKET
