Description

This book is based on Kahn's An Introduction to Epidemiological Methods (OUP, 1983). As the title change indicates, its discussion of the statistical concepts and methods that are fundamental to epidemiology has been substantially expanded. New material has been added throughout and there are two new chapters - 'Comparison of Numerical Results for Various methods of Adjustment' and 'The Primacy of Data Collection' - as well as an appendix of data from the Framingham Heart Study.show more

Review quote

Very useful, because it summarizes many of the essentials of epidemiological statistics that were previously described only in journal articles or more mathematical texts. does a good job of summarizing the various statistical methods used for analysing epidemiological studies ... There is much statistical information which is useful and attractively written, making it a useful reference text. * Neil Pearce, International Journal of Epidemiology, Vol.19, No.4, 1990 *show more
