Analysing Limited Data

For my thesis I involuntary have a small dataset due to a limited population. I was thinking about analysing this data with the statistical model ANOVA, using non-parametric tests or Bayesian statistics. What do you think works best? Or are there any other methods/models/tests I can use?
Any tip ore suggestion will be highly appreciated!
Thank you in advance.

  • Hi Inge,
    My advice is to use Bayesian statistics -- if you have few observations you will probably be told that the evidence is inconclusive (but that does not need to be the case). Also, the posterior distributions will just be wide.
