Key to Statistical Tests

In this section, we provide guidance for choosing an appropriate statistical test when you have independent observations. Analyses involving independent observations usually have a single measurement of the outcome for each person or animal. If you are doing an analysis with multiple measurements of the outcome (i.e. longitudinal clinical trial with repeated measurements), you will need to use alternative techniques. Please schedule a Catalyst consultation for further assistance if you have such a situation (link).
