Review of book from the Stata Journal

Comment from the Stata technical group

Statistics for Epidemiology is the latest in a long line of texts that can be used to provide the basis for a course in statistical epidemiology aimed at graduate students in the medical professions. Given the target audience, such texts must strike a delicate balance so as to not be too theoretical while also providing enough statistical background to avoid producing a cookbook for a "plug-and-chug" course. This text very much succeeds in this regard.

Covered topics include some basic probability (including discussion of conditional probability and Berkson's bias), measures of risk, study designs, analysis of tables, interaction, regression models for binary outcomes, advanced logistic regression, matching, and Cox regression.
