Statistical Power Analysis
A Simple and General Model for Traditional and Modern Hypothesis Tests, Third Edition
Routledge – 2009 – 224 pages
Noted for its accessible approach, this bestseller applies power analysis to both null hypothesis and minimum-effect testing using the same basic model. Through the use of a few relatively simple procedures and examples from the behavioral and social sciences, the authors show readers with little expertise in statistical analysis how to quickly obtain the values needed to carry out the power analysis for their research. Illustrations of how these analyses work and how they can be used to understand problems of study design, to evaluate research, and to choose the appropriate criterion for defining "statistically significant" outcomes are sprinkled throughout. The book presents a simple and general model for statistical power analysis that is based on the F statistic.

The third edition features:
Ideal for students and researchers in the social, behavioral, and health sciences, business, and education, this valuable resource helps readers apply methods of power analysis to their research. PV and F tables serve as a quick reference.

"The change to the software is a substantial improvement and could go a long way to making power analysis more accessible. … I often field … questions along the lines of, “I have ten subjects per variable in my study – is that enough?” It would be refreshing to direct the questioner to a text that is as clear and usable as this one." - Stephen Brand, University of Rhode Island
"I see much need for a guide on power analysis among the graduate students and I think many students will benefit from reading this book. … I especially like the boxed sections. … They greatly help readers understand basic concepts." - Jaihyun Park, Baruch College
"The … addition of worked examples for each type of analysis … will … make the book more useful. … The boxed examples present difficult concepts in student-friendly language. … I have used this book in the past … in my graduate-level Experimental Design class. … I would consider adopting it for my course." - Corinne Zimmerman, Illinois State University
