Contrasts are statistical procedures for asking focused questions of data. Researchers, teachers of research methods and graduate students will be familiar with the principles and procedures of contrast analysis included here. But they, for the first time, will also be presented with a series of newly developed concepts, measures, and indices that permit a wider and more useful application of contrast analysis. This volume takes on this new approach by introducing a family of correlational effect size estimates. By returning to these correlations throughout the book, the authors demonstrate special adaptations in a variety of contexts from two group comparison to one way analysis of variance contexts, to factorial designs, to repeated measures designs and to the case of multiple contrasts.


1. Basic concepts of focused procedures; 2. Basic procedures for two groups; 3. One-way contrast analysis; 4. Contrasts in factorial designs; 5. Contrasts in repeated measures; 6. Multiple contrasts.


"A milestone. This book is bound to remain the definitive word on contrast analysis for many years to come." Miron Zuckerman, University of Rochester

"This is a great boook that everybody who uses ANOVA techniques should could definitely be used in courses for advanced undergraduates and graduate students; even experienced researchers will find that they still can learn a lot from it." APA Review of Books

"Rosenthal, Rosnow, and Rubin have delivered as promised. The book is written in a lively style and fulfills expectations. It will add to our body of knowledge in proportion to its use by researchers, teachers, and students." Malcolm James Ree, Personal Psychology
