An introduction to classical biostatistical methods in epidemiology
"Biostatistical Methods in Epidemiology" provides an
introduction to a wide range of methods used to analyze
epidemiologic data, with a focus on nonregression techniques. The
text includes an extensive discussion of measurement issues in
epidemiology, especially confounding. Maximum likelihood,
Mantel-Haenszel, and weighted least squares methods are presented
for the analysis of closed cohort and case-control data.
Kaplan-Meier and Poisson methods are described for the analysis of
censored survival data. A justification for using odds ratio
methods in case-control studies is provided. Standardization of
rates is discussed and the construction of ordinary, multiple
decrement and cause-deleted life tables is outlined. Sample size
formulas are given for a range of epidemiologic study designs. The
text ends with a brief overview of logistic and Cox regression.
Other highlights include: Many worked examples based on actual
dataDiscussion of exact methodsRecommendations for preferred
methodsExtensive appendices and references
"Biostatistical Methods in Epidemiology" provides an excellent
introduction to the subject for students, while also serving as a
