Summary
"The analysis and interpretation of quality of life rely on a variety of psychometric and statistical methods which are explained in this book in a non-technical way. The result is a practical guide that covers a wide range of methods and emphasizes the use of simple techniques using numerous examples. Much of the material in this second edition has been reorganized to reflect current teaching methods and the content has been widened to address extensive developments in item response theory, computer adaptive testing, systematic reviews and meta-analysis." "This book is aimed at everyone involved in quality of life search and is applicable to medical and non-medical, statistical and non-statistical readers. It is of particular relevance for clinical and biomedical researchers within both the pharmaceutical industry and clinical practice."--BOOK JACKET
