Description

This text combines applied and theoretical approaches to the analysis of epidemiologic issues. It goes beyond elementary material to deal with real problems generated by disease data, and delves into less usual areas such as the analysis of spatial distributions, survival data, proportional hazards regression, and "computer intensive" approaches to statistical estimation. Each method discussed in the text is illustrated with examples which include complete sets of data. Using actual data demonstrates the strengths and weaknesses of different analytic approaches in describing a disease process. The book's goal is to develop a clear understanding of analytic approaches to problems in epidemiological data analysis without relying on sophisticated mathematics and advanced statistical theory. Individuals with some background in epidemiology and statistics will find this a useful volume in the study of epidemiological analysis.show more
