Planning Statistical Investigations
We have now discussed probability theory and statistical theory long enough, and it is time to change pace. In this chapter we shall go out into the real world and treat problems arising when planning statistical investigations. After a general discussion in §16.2, we devote §16.3 to noncomparative investigations and §16.4 to comparative investigations. §16.5 contains some final remarks. In an Appendix, it is shown how to handle random numbers.
