Comment from the Stata technical group

Statistical Methods for Rates and Proportions covers a wide variety of methods for analyzing categorical data, with the emphasis and examples drawn from clinical medicine, epidemiology, psychiatry, psychopathology, and public health. The book is aimed at researchers and students who have at least a year’s course in applied statistics, including a thorough grounding in chi-squared tests and correlation. The mathematical background is restricted to high school algebra.

This book has the look and feel of a textbook, complete with examples used to demonstrate methods and motivate questions and exercises (with selected answers) at the end of each chapter. A bibliography is provided at the end of each chapter, providing a valuable desk reference for those interested in probing a topic in more depth.

Covered topics include statistical inference for one proportion, significance in a fourfold table, sample sizes, randomization, comparative studies, randomized controlled trials, logistic and Poisson regression, regression models for matched samples, correlated binary data, missing data, measuring interrater agreement, and standardization of rates.
