Health and Numbers 2e: A Problems-Based Introduction to Biostatistics,
The book treats fundamental statistical methods with a practical, problems-based approach. It covers the nuts and bolts of elementary applied statistics for those who have no prior knowledge and experience in statistics. It provides an overview of basic ideas on standardization and rates and graphical techniques, offers more exercises than did the first edition, and features Microsoft Excel and SAS samples, and new chapters on comparisons of means and proportions, as well as regression and correlation techniques. Health and Numbers, Second Edition strikes a balance between principles and methods of calculation that is particularly useful for students in medicine and health-related fields who are struggling with required courses in biostatistics.
