Before one can understand and apply the statistical methods that are being used most commonly in sports injury research, an introduction on general statistical principles is needed. This chapter deals with such basic requirements as normal distributions, p-values, and confidence intervals, as well as different basic statistical methods. It provides the knowledge needed to understand the more complex methods that are being explained in the remaining chapters of this book.
