Description

This is a rigorous, systematic introduction to the basic concepts and practical tools of epidemiologic research. It is aimed at readers who will be conducting epidemiologic studies themselves or who need a firm grasp of epidemiologic principles in order to interpret evaluate studies conducted by others.Besides offering clear explanations of key concepts, the book is rich with examples illustrating how these concepts are applied. Some examples are drawn from classic studies in the field - the work of Snow, Semmelweis, Goldberger, Doll and Hill, and others - while many others concern modern-day epidemiologic studies of problems of current public health importance. Almost every chapter includes a set of exercises (with answers) to help readers gain practice in applying new ideas and techniques.show more
