The Biostatistics course is often found in the schools of public Health, medical schools, and, occasionally, in statistics and biology departments. The population of students in these courses is a diverse one, with varying preparedness. The book assumes the reader has at least two years of high school algebra, but no previous exposure to statistics is required. Written for individuals who might be fearful of mathematics, this book minimizes the technical difficulties and emphasizes the importance of statistics in scientific investigation. An understanding of underlying design and analysis is stressed. The limitations of the research, design and analytical techniques are discussed, allowing the reader to accurately interpret results. Real data, both processed and raw, are used extensively in examples and exercises. Statistical computing packages - MINITAB, SAS and Stata - are integrated. The use of the computer and software allows a sharper focus on the concepts, letting the computer do the necessary number-crunching. * Emphasizes underlying statistical concepts more than competing texts * Focuses on experimental design and analysis, at an elementary level * Includes an introduction to linear correlation and regression * Statistics are central: probability is downplayed * Presents life tables and survival analysis * Appendix with solutions to many exercises * Special instructor's manual with solution to all exercises

For over a decade, Glover and Mitchell have provided life-sciences students with an accessible, complete introduction to the use of statistics in their disciplines. The authors emphasize the relationships between probability, probability distributions, and hypothesis testing using both parametric and nonparametric analyses. Copious examples throughout the text apply concepts and theories to real questions faced by researchers in biology, environmental science, biochemistry, and health sciences. Dozens of examples and problems are new to the Third Edition, as are “Concept Checks”—short questions that allow readers to immediately gauge their mastery of the topics presented. Regardless of mathematical background, all readers will appreciate the value of statistics as a fundamental quantitative skill for the life sciences.

The last decade has produced many textbooks on Biostatistics, with varying emphasis and degrees of mathematical complexity. This book has stood the test of time and continues to enjoy wide acceptance among students of all health and allied professions, other students and even qualified health investigators, who find it practical, simple and yet precise. This fully updated and thoroughly revised Fifth Edition, while retaining the fundamental concepts, acquaints the reader with the advances in the subject. The book explains the concepts involved in arriving at the sample size and also a quick solution to the estimation of sample size. Survival analysis and log-rank test are illustrated with examples. The essentials of Chi square tests are simplified and presented. Two-way analysis of variance (ANOVA) is explained with two examples, with and without interaction term. The chapters on Research Methods, Interventional Studies and Observational Studies provide step-by-step guide to plan and carry out quality research. Questions given in each chapter will help the learner to gauge the level of understanding of the principles and applications. Clues to the use of computer packages are provided whenever necessary. Intended for undergraduate and postgraduate medical students as well as for nursing and paramedical students, the book will also be immensely useful to medical/health faculty and researchers in the field of Biostatistics. KEY FEATURES : A new chapter on Sample Size Determination Several new sections Extensive revision of practically all chapters Provision of new examples Chapter-end exercises

Like its two successful previous editions, Health & Numbers: A Problems-Based Introduction to Biostatistics, Third Edition, is the only fully problems-based introduction to biostatistics and offers a concise introduction to basic statistical concepts and reasoning at a level suitable for a broad spectrum of students and professionals in medicine and the allied health fields. This book has always been meant for use by advanced students who have not previously had an introductory biostatistics course - material often presented in a one-semester course - or by busy professionals who need to learn the basics of biostatistics. This user-friendly resource features over 200 real-life examples and real data to discuss and teach fundamental statistical methods. The new edition offers even more exercises than the second edition, and features enhanced Microsoft Excel and SAS samples and examples. Health & Numbers, Third Edition, truly strikes a balance between principles and methods of calculation that is particularly useful for students in medicine and health-related fields who need to know biostatistics.

BIOSTATISTICS: AN APPLIED INTRODUCTION FOR THE PUBLIC HEALTH PRACTITIONER is designed to help public health researchers, practitioners, and students understand and apply essential biostatistics concepts. This innovative new text emphasizes real-world public health problems and the research questions they inspire. This text provides a unique introduction to statistical concepts and methods used by working professionals during investigations. Unlike other texts that assume a strong knowledge of mathematics or rely heavily on formulas, BIOSTATISTICS consistently emphasizes the public health context, making even complex material both accessible and relevant. The first chapter introduces common statistical terminology by explaining them in clear language, while subsequent chapters explore the most useful and versatile statistical methods for a variety of public health research questions. For each type of question, the author presents a range of applicable methods, from descriptions of data to simple statistical tests, generalized linear models, and multiple variable regression. The text's step-by-step coverage of fundamental concepts is perfect for students new to the field, but its depth and detail also make it ideal for two-course series in M.P.H. or M.H.A. programs, or for working professionals. Readers at all stages of their professional lives can draw on this invaluable resource to help them interpret and conduct statistical studies and support effective evidence-based practice.
