The following section deals with analysis methods that are only described briefly. You should not take this brevity to indicate that the methods are inferior, it simply reflects a pragmatic decision about what material could be fitted into our course. Some of these methods may not be available within your current statistical software package. However, many of these links provide information about free, or shareware software, that can be downloaded. There are also links to other web pages that provide more detailed information.
