Fundamentals of statistics in health administration.


Fundamentals of statistics in health administration.

Broyles, Robert W.

Jones & Bartlett


374 pages




What distinguishes this introductory text is its use of examples from the health administration field to illustrate statistical methods and its emphasis on using Microsoft Excel to perform calculations. Broyles (health administration and policy, U. of Oklahoma, Oklahoma City) familiarizes students with the descriptive and inferential techniques useful in prospective payment systems. The text includes exercises, a glossary, introduction to Excel spreadsheet software, and standard statistical tables. Math derivations are kept to a minimum.
