Banish your fears of statistical analysis using this clearly written and highly successful textbook.

It starts with very basic methodology and builds on it to encompass some of the more advanced techniques that are currently used. This book will enable you to handle numerical data and critically appraise the veterinary and animal science literature. Written in a non-mathematical way, the emphasis is on understanding the underlying concepts and correctly interpreting computer output, and not on working through mathematical formulae.

Numerous real worked examples are included to help you master the procedures
Two statistical packages, SPSS and Stata, are used to analyse data to familiarise you with typical computer output
The data sets from the examples in the book are available as electronic files to download from the book's companion website at in ASCII, Excel, SPSS, Stata and R Workspace formats, allowing you to practice using your own software and fully get to grips with the techniques
A clear indication is provided of the more advanced or obscure topics so that, if desired, you can skip them without loss of continuity.
