Counter This highly-regarded text serves as a quick reference book which offers clear, concise instructions on how and when to use the most popular nonparametric procedures. This edition features some procedures that have withstood the test of time and are now used by many practitioners, such as the Fisher Exact Test for two-by-two contingency tables, the Mantel-Haenszel Test for combining several contingency tables, the Kaplan-Meier estimates of the survival curve, the Jonckheere-Terpstra Test and the Page Test for ordered alternatives, and a discussion of the bootstrap method.
