Comment from the Stata technical group

This book covers a broad array of statistical techniques useful to researchers in the fields of human growth and development. The author defines human growth as changes to anthropometric measurements, including body mass index and height. On the other hand, development is defined as changes in abilities, such as cognitive abilities, and changes in functioning. Noting that growth and development are strongly related, Chueng discusses statistical analysis of both types of data.

Statistical Analysis of Human Growth and Development describes basic and advanced statistical methods, demonstrating how each one may be used to address common research problems. Examples show Stata code and output.

Topics include an overview of basic statistical concepts, causality, linear regression, quantile regression, logistic regression, survival analysis, mixed models, fractional polynomials, item–response theory, validity, reliability, and multiple imputation.
