About

Overview

In DATA ANALYSIS BY RESAMPLING, Clifford Lunneborg argues that modern computing power has rendered the model-driven and assumption-plagued data analyses of the past unnecessary, obsolete, and inappropriate. This book introduces readers to modern, design-driven analyses that depend only on the observed data, on knowledge of how the data were collected, and on questions the data were intended to answer. Overall, Lunneborg provides a modern and timely approach to statistical inference.
