Nonparametric Statistics
An Introduction



November 1992 | 96 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
Through the use of actual research investigations that have appeared in recent social science journals, Gibbons shows the reader the specific methodology and logical rationale for many of the best-known and most frequently used nonparametric methods that are applicable to most small and large sample sizes. The methods are organized according to the type of sample structure that produced the data to be analyzed, and the inference types covered are limited to location tests, such as the sign test, the Mann-Whitney-Wilcoxon test, the Kruskal-Wallis test and Friedman's test. The formal introduction of each test is followed by a data example, calculated first by hand and then by computer.

SAGE Research Methods is a research methods tool created to help researchers, faculty and students with their research projects. SAGE Research Methods links over 175,000 pages of SAGE’s renowned book, journal and reference content with truly advanced search and discovery tools. Researchers can explore methods concepts to help them design research projects, understand particular methods or identify a new method, conduct their research, and write up their findings. Since SAGE Research Methods focuses on methodology rather than disciplines, it can be used across the social sciences, health sciences, and more.

With SAGE Research Methods, researchers can explore their chosen method across the depth and breadth of content, expanding or refining their search as needed; read online, print, or email full-text content; utilize suggested related methods and links to related authors from SAGE Research Methods' robust library and unique features; and even share their own collections of content through Methods Lists. SAGE Research Methods contains content from over 720 books, dictionaries, encyclopedias, and handbooks, the entire “Little Green Book,” and "Little Blue Book” series, two Major Works collating a selection of journal articles, and specially commissioned videos.
