Adaptive statistical tests, developed over the last 30 years, are often more powerful than traditional tests of significance, but have not been widely used. To date, discussions of adaptive statistical methods have been scattered across the literature and generally do not include the computer programs necessary to make these adaptive methods a practical alternative to traditional statistical methods. Until recently, there has also not been a general approach to tests of significance and confidence intervals that could easily be applied in practice. Modern adaptive methods are more general than earlier methods and sufficient software has been developed to make adaptive tests easy to use for many real-world problems. Applied Adaptive Statistical Methods: Tests of Significance and Confidence Intervals introduces many of the practical adaptive statistical methods developed over the last 10 years and provides a comprehensive approach to tests of significance and confidence intervals.
