Comment from the Stata technical group

An Introduction to Medical Statistics, Fourth Edition, by Martin Bland is a great statistics text for students in the medical sciences and an ideal self-study text for medical practitioners. Bland covers both introductory statistical concepts and advanced topics that would be taught in a graduate-level course on medical statistics. Rather than focusing heavily on formulas, the text emphasizes understanding statistical principles and interpreting the results.

This book introduces readers to the types of analyses most often encountered in medical literature. Bland begins by discussing the basic principles of experimental design, sampling, data summarization, and graphs. The text then focuses on probability theory and the normal distribution, yet this discussion is brief and to the point. Standard inference for means and proportions, tests of significance, regression, correlation, rank statistics, and cross tabulations are each explained. The text then proceeds to more advanced topics such as models for binary and count data, standardized rates, and sample-size calculations. In the fourth edition, Bland adds new chapters on survival analysis, meta-analysis, multiple imputation, and Bayesian analysis.
