A Fabulous Guide to Writing the Statistical Section of Grant Proposals

Spending the summer writing a research grant proposal?  Stuck on how to write up the statistics section?

An excellent handbook that outlines how to prepare the statistical content for grant proposals is “Statistics Guide for Research Grant Applicants.” Sections include “Describing the Study Design”, “Sample Size Calculations”, and “Describing the Statistical Methods,” among others.

The navigation for the guide is not obvious–it is in the left margin menu, among other menus, toward the bottom. You have to scroll down from the top of the page to see it.

The authors, JM Bland, BK Butland, JL Peacock, J Poloniecki, F Reid, P Sedgwick, are statisticians at St. George’s Hospital Medical School, London.
