An introduction to the kinds of clinical thinking that must guide the application of statistical principles and methods. Written for readers who wish to understand and interpret ideas and data in the clinical sciences without becoming involved in the technical details of analysis. The three sections deal with the notion of populations, the goals and backgrounds of statistical analysis, and the ways in which abstract or artificial methods of analysis may be adapted to actual problems. Illustrative examples and sample problems.
