Here are the latest editions of the BMDP Statistical Software Manual and the BMDP User's Digest, completely revised to accompany the new Version 7.0 software release.
WHAT IS BMDP?
The BMDP package is an extensive collection of computer programs that currently aids students, instructors, and research professionals the world over in analyzing data. Running on most mainframes, minicomputers, and PCs, the BMDP software has capabilities ranging from plots and simple data description to more sophisticated techniques such as repeated measures analysis. Practitioners in diverse fields, from psychology, sociology, and economics to biology, medicine, and public health, find the BMDP programs absolutely indispensable.
THE BMDP MANUAL
The BMDP Statistical Software Manual is the main reference guide for users. The Version 7.0 edition presents the latest program features and an expanded step-by-step introduction on how to use BMDP. Program chapters employ examples—each demonstrating a typical analysis—from realistic biomedical, environmental, social science, and industrial research. Sample outputs are annotated to help users interpret their results.
Volume 1, accessible to the novice, introduces BMDP and describes the most commonly used programs, such as plots, histograms, frequency tables, nonparametric statistics, analysis of variance, t tests, stepwise regression, nonlinear regression, factor analysis, discriminant analysis, and Box-Jenkins time series.
Volume 2 covers the more specialized or advanced programs; for example, life tables, survival analysis, cluster analysis, logistic regression, multivariate analysis of variance, spectral analysis, and analyses with missing data. Included are two exciting recent programs—maximum likelihood estimation, and polychotomous stepwise logistic regression and one new program—quadratic discriminant analysis.
Volume 3 discusses the BMDP Data Manager, a powerful, interactive data manipulation system. The Data Manager program reads and writes BMDP files and raw data files, and it reads files with multiple record types and hierarchical structures. It supports data manipulation such as merging files side by side, end to end, or by interleaving records. It also offers packing and unpacking procedures for transposing values between single and multiple records, as well as sorting, transforming, and calculating summary statistics.
ALSO AVAILABLE, THE BMDP USER'S DIGEST
The User's Digest is the ideal compact guide that puts BMDP at your fingertips with concise definitions, brief examples, and a complete listing of program instructions and options. Pocket size and spiral-bound for ease of use, it is the essential companion for every workstation.
The BMDP Manual was written under the leadership of W.J. Dixon, who has guided the BMD and BMDP programs throughout their development for more than 25 years. This manual reflects the work of many respected statisticians, talented programmers, and other specialists who have helped make BMDP the software of choice for in-depth analysis.
