Abstract

To establish and to report findings of many researches researchers need to apply statistical procedures. After reviewing many studies and working with many of the senior and junior colleagues, it becomes apparent that important information about the study design and statistical analysis is often incomplete or inappropriate. It is often likely because of many of them are very busy with their principal tasks and many of them are not having enough exposure to statistical courses. This book is to help them apply reasonably appropriate statistical procedure in their research. It is tried in this book to remind the researchers about the assumptions of different statistical procedures. It is seen that with very small sample size data from which may not be normally distributed statistics such as mean and others dependent on mean are applied to establish the findings. To overcome this problem parametric tests are followed by the nonparametric alternatives and reasons of applying nonparametric tests are given. Examples are given before choosing and performing the statistical tests manually and using SPSS version 21. It is tried in this book to help the researchers so that with very little statistical knowledge and skill they can analyse the data using SPSS version 21. In other words, the busy like medical doctor and or novice researchers will be able to identify the appropriate commonly used statistical procedure and do their analysis by themselves by following the instructions given in this book.
