Comment from the Stata technical group

Biostatistics Decoded is an introduction to biostatistics for medical professionals and clinical researchers. The book emphasizes concepts and basic calculations that will provide the reader with a foundation for understanding the study designs and statistical methods reported in the scientific literature.

The book is comprehensive and includes basic descriptive and inferential statistics as well as advanced topics such as the analysis of longitudinal studies, survival analysis, factor analysis, and meta analysis. A variety of study designs are also covered, including stratified and multistage sampling designs and modern experimental designs such as adaptive clinical trials and noninferiority trials.

The book avoids mathematical proofs and uses diagrams, graphs, and simulations to illustrate ideas. Familiarity with basic arithmetic, square roots, and logarithms is sufficient, and no knowledge of calculus is necessary. All examples are worked using Stata.
