Key features:

  • Consort-flow diagrams and numerical examples are used to demonstrate the unfairness of established techniques, reminiscent of, AT research, AP research and ITT research for a RCT with noncompliance.
  • Real-life examples are used through the ebook to provide an explanation for the sensible usefulness of try out techniques and estimators.
  • Each bankruptcy is self-contained, permitting the e-book for use as a reference source.
