The Statistical Methods Manual documents statistical analysis methods applicable to data collected by the Environmental Monitoring and Assessment Program (EMAP). The methods described give the procedures to estimate the current status of ecological resources that are appropriate for survey designs implemented by EMAP. The methods apply to analyses of EMAP regional demonstration studies and R-EMAP studies. Sufficient information is given to enable a user to determine if the method is appropriate for the survey design used in these procedures or to cover additional EMAP or R-EMAP studies. The audience for the manual are statisticians or scientists with a reasonable background in statistics. The calculations are detailed so that a scientific programmer can implement the methods.
