Includes bibliographical references and indexes.

"Often referred to as distribution-free methods, nonparametric methods do not rely on assumptions that the data are drawn from a given probability distribution. With an emphasis on Wilcoxon rank methods that enable a unified approach to data analysis, this book presents a unique overview of robust nonparametric statistical methods. Drawing on examples from various disciplines, the relevant R code for these examples, as well as numerous exercises for self-study, the text covers location models, regression models, designed experiments, and multivariate methods. This edition features a new chapter on cluster correlated data"--
