Describes statistical intervals to quantify sampling uncertainty,focusing on key application needs and recently developed methodology in an easy-to-apply format

Statistical intervals provide invaluable tools for quantifying sampling uncertainty. The widely hailed first edition, published in 1991, described the use and construction of the most important statistical intervals. Particular emphasis was given to intervals―such as prediction intervals, tolerance intervals and confidence intervals on distribution quantiles―frequently needed in practice, but often neglected in introductory courses.

Vastly improved computer capabilities over the past 25 years have resulted in an explosion of the tools readily available to analysts. This second edition―more than double the size of the first―adds these new methods in an easy-to-apply format. In addition to extensive updating of the original chapters, the second edition includes new chapters on:

  • Likelihood-based statistical intervals
  • Nonparametric bootstrap intervals
  • Parametric bootstrap and other simulation-based intervals
  • An introduction to Bayesian intervals
  • Bayesian intervals for the popular binomial, Poisson and normal distributions
  • Statistical intervals for Bayesian hierarchical models
  • Advanced case studies, further illustrating the use of the newly described methods

New technical appendices provide justification of the methods and pathways to extensions and further applications. A webpage directs readers to current readily accessible computer software and other useful information.

Statistical Intervals: A Guide for Practitioners and Researchers, Second Edition is an up-to-date working guide and reference for all who analyze data, allowing them to quantify the uncertainty in their results using statistical intervals.

From the Publisher:

Presents a detailed exposition of statistical intervals and emphasizes applications in industry. The discussion differentiates at an elementary level among different kinds of statistical intervals and gives instruction with numerous examples and simple math on how to construct such intervals from sample data. This includes confidence intervals to contain a population percentile, confidence intervals on probability of meeting specified threshold value, and prediction intervals to include observation in a future sample. Also has an appendix containing computer subroutines for nonparametric statistical intervals.
