Application and interpretation of statistical tools useful for the analysis of Epidemiologic and medical data.
Discusses elementary survival analysis biostatistical tools such as the nonparametric techniques, life tables, Kaplan/Meire survival probabilities and cox regression. Equally, parametric approaches based on exponential and Weibull probability distributions are similarly discussed.
Presents six statistical tools often useful in specific situations but rarely found in introductory texts. Two examples are the capture/recapture methods for estimating population sizes, both human and animal populations, and random response survey techniques that guarantee complete confidentially.
