The second edition of Statistics and Data Analysis for Nursing, uses a conversational style to teach students how to use statistical methods and procedures to analyze research findings. Students are guided through the complete analysis process from performing a statistical analysis to the rationale behind doing so. In addition, management of data, including how and why to recode variables for analysis, how to "clean" data, and how to work around missing data, is discussed.
