Comment from the Stata technical group

This book begins with an overview of clinical studies: their purpose, the two basic types of sample selection, paired and unpaired observations, internal validity, and sources of bias. Eight datasets that serve as motivation for examples are then introduced.

The next three chapters of the book discuss the different methods for measuring accuracy, including the receiver operating characteristic (ROC) curve. The rest of the book discusses estimating these measures of accuracy, accounting for covariates, dealing with various forms of bias, and the phases of research for a medical test.

Each chapter contains concluding remarks and exercises for readers to test their understanding of the material.

Although the text itself does not show how to use Stata to reproduce results presented in the book, the book provides access to a website that contains Stata datasets and programs for that purpose.
