Comment from the Stata technical group

Modern Epidemiology, Third Edition (Revised) provides a complete desk reference of the methods of modern epidemiology, with contributions from the three authors plus nineteen leading experts from various subfields. Intended as a sort of encyclopedia, the text has broad coverage and the discussions are clear and concise and include citations to every reference imaginable.

The revised edition updates the third (published in 2008) to include coverage of clinical epidemiology and meta analysis.
