Applied Mixed Models in Medicine
Second Edition
edited by Helen Brown

Applied Mixed Models in Medicine presents an overview of the theory of mixed models applied to problems in medical research.


  • Fully updated to include up-to-date references and developments.
  • Computer examples updated to the latest edition of SAS, and now includes more discussion of other software options
  • Includes many more examples using real data, including examples from health research and epidemiology
  • Includes a new section on missing data, and a serious update of the material on repeated measures
  • Supported by a Website featuring computer code, data sets, and further material
