Comment from the Stata technical group

Making Sense of Data: A Self-Instruction Manual on the Interpretation of Epidemiological Data, Third Edition, by J. H. Abramson and Z. H. Abramson, is a nonmathematical workbook that introduces statistical methods for epidemiological data. Because computer software is readily available to perform the necessary calculations, this text focuses on how to choose the appropriate analysis and interpret the results, rather than detailing the theory and formulas behind such methods. The authors’ nonmathematical treament of data makes this text ideal for self-instruction for those in scientific fields other than statistics.

Abramson and Abramson cover the usual topics for epidemiological data—such as rates, odds, standardization, and two-dimensional tables—but the topics are organized to allow for a more qualitative approach to data analysis. The text also covers advanced topics, including ROC curves, Cox proportional-hazards regression, multivariate analysis, and meta-analysis.
