Introduction

Quantitative research design provides an approach to finding scholarly evidence.  There are a variety of philosophical considerations, strategies of inquiry, and methods of data collection and analysis based on the study question and the types and numbers of variables.  For example, having one or more dependent and/or independent variables is what prescribes the statistical tests needed to answer the study question(s).  It is important for nurse researchers, leaders, educators, and practitioners to know how to select the correct statistical analysis for a study.
