Statistical Analysis and Data Display

An Intermediate Course with Examples in R

Authors: Heiberger, Richard M., Holland, Burt

  • New edition continues the exposition of data analysis methods with examples and graphics of distributions, regression, analysis of variance, design of experiments, contingency table analysis, nonparametrics, logistic regression, and time series analysis
  • Features color graphics throughout, with R code to produce all figures and tables in the book
  • New sections: on Likert Scale Data to pick up on the importance of rating scales in fields from population studies to psychometrics; on Medical, Pharmaceutical, and Social Science Examples; on mosaic graphics for discrete data; and on perception of graphics including discussions of color vision, microplots, and structured sets of graphs and panels
  • New and expanded appendices on software (HH, Shiny, Rcmdr, RExcel), mathematics (Computational Precision and Floating-Point Arithmetic, Mathematics Preliminaries, Probability Distributions), and Statistical Analysis and Writing (Working Style, Writing Style, and Text Editing Tools)
  • Reproducibility: all graphs and tables in the book can be reproduced in R by the user with scripts included in the HH package available from CRAN and all datasets used in the book are also available for use with other software systems

About this Textbook

This contemporary presentation of statistical methods features extensive use of graphical displays for exploring data and for displaying the analysis. The authors demonstrate how to analyze data—showing code, graphics, and accompanying tabular listings—for all the methods they cover. Complete R scripts for all examples and figures are provided for readers to use as models for their own analyses.

This book can serve as a standalone text for statistics majors at the master’s level and for other quantitatively oriented disciplines at the doctoral level, and as a reference book for researchers. Classical concepts and techniques are illustrated with a variety of case studies using both newer graphical tools and traditional tabular displays.

New graphical material includes:

  • an expanded chapter on graphics
  • a section on graphing Likert Scale Data to build on the importance of rating scales in fields from population studies to psychometrics
  • a discussion on design of graphics that will work for readers with color-deficient vision
  • an expanded discussion on the design of multi-panel graphics
  • expanded and new sections in the discrete bivariate statistics capter on the use of mosaic plots for contingency tables including the n×2×2 tables for which the Mantel–Haenszel–Cochran test is appropriate
  • an interactive (using the shiny package) presentation of the graphics for the normal and t-tables that is introduced early and used in many chapters

Heiberger is Professor Emeritus in the Department of Statistics of Temple University, an elected Fellow of the American Statistical Association, and a former Chair of the Section on Statistical Computing of the American Statistical Association.  He was Graduate Chair for the Department of Statistics and Acting Associate Vice Provost for the University.  He participated in the design of the linear model and analysis of variance functions while on research leave at Bell Labs.  He has taught short courses at the Joint Statistics Meetings, the American Statistical Association Conference on Statistical Practice, the R Users Conference, and the Deming Conference on Applied Statistics.  He has consulted with several pharmaceutical companies.

Burt Holland was Professor in the Department of Statistics of Temple University, an elected Fellow of the American Statistical Association, Chair of the Department of Statistics of Temple University, and Chair of Collegial Assembly of the Fox School.  He has taught short courses at the Joint Statistics Meetings and the Deming Conference on Applied Statistics.  He has made many contributions to linear modeling and simultaneous statistical inference.  He frequently served as consultant to medical investigators.  He developed a very popular General Education course on Statistics and the News.

Reviews

“It is a thorough and self-contained book. Keeping with the spirit with earlier edition, the second edition is well organized and structured and builds on statistical knowledge and its appreciation in a logical and concise manner. The book provides a host of useful topics and techniques for students in the niche of statistical analysis and data display. The book can adopted as textbook for an intermediate level statistics course.” (S. E. Ahmed, Technometrics, Vol. 58 (3), August, 2016)
