Summary
The purpose of this book is to illustrate how to achieve research-design equivalence across the diverse groups in one's study. Research-design equivalence refers to the ability to accurately represent the phenomenon under investigation using the appropriate research methods and statistical procedures to ensure the internal and external validity of one's study
