Comment from the Stata technical group

Woodward’s third edition of Epidemiology: Study Design and Data Analysis has two target audiences: researchers who need statistical solutions to epidemiology problems and statisticians who wish to learn how their science applies to epidemiology. This book successfully presents statistical principles in epidemiology in a manner that is neither too theoretical nor too replete with medical jargon. It provides complete treatment of the topic, from simple contingency tables to meta-analysis. The book uses real data throughout—more than 20 large datasets are cataloged for download—and the end of each chapter has exercises. Woodward makes Stata code for working many of the examples available for download.

Topics include basic terminology, causality, descriptive statistics, testing of means, relative risks versus odds ratios, exact tests based on tables, tests for linear and nonlinear trends, confounding and interaction, direct and indirect standardization, cohort designs, case–control studies, intervention studies, power and sample size, linear models (including analysis of variance), logistic and other models for binary responses, survival analysis (including Cox regression), and meta-analysis. The third edition has been expanded to include risk scores and clinical decision rules, bootstrapping, multiple imputation, binomial regression models, competing risk, propensity scoring, and splines.
