Using real data from published sources, this engaging and lucid casebook shows how statistical tools can be used to analyze important epidemiologic issues. Its 18 cases address a variety of interesting research problems from Mendel's classic sweet pea experiments to recent studies of AIDS and exposure to electro-magnetic field radiation. Each includes a data set. The cases are described succinctly and the methods used to analyze them are then discussed in detail. A wide range of statistical and graphical tools are included, from simple mean values to nonparametric bivariate regression smoothing techniques. The level of discussion is sophisticated but mathematically simple, affording access to a broad audience interested in using collected data to study human health and disease. The author's focus on describing, interpreting and presenting results will set this book apart from other texts.
