Medical Statistics Book from C.H.I.P.S.

Medical Uses of Statistics
Third Edition
edited by John C. Bailar

Medical Uses of Statistics maintains the focus on the critical ideas, rather than the mechanics, to give practitioners and students the resources they need to understand the statistical methods they encounter in modern medical literature.

Bringing together contributions from more than two dozen distinguished statisticians and medical doctors, this volume stresses the underlying concepts in areas such as randomized trials, survival analysis, genetics, linear regression, meta-analysis, and risk analysis.

Medical Uses of Statistics includes:

  • Numerous examples based on studies taken directly from the pages of the New England Journal of Medicine
  • Two added chapters on statistics in genetics
  • Two new chapters on the application of statistical methods to studies in epidemiology
  • New chapters on analyses of randomized trials, linear regression, categorical data analysis, meta-analysis, subgroup analyses, and risk analysis
  • Updated chapters on statistical thinking, crossover designs, p-values, survival analysis, and reporting research results
  • A focus on helping readers to critically interpret published results of clinical research
