Comment from the Stata technical group

Statistics in Medicine, Third Edition, by Robert H. Riffenburgh, is an excellent book, useful as a reference for researchers in the medical sciences and as a textbook. It focuses largely on understanding statistical concepts rather than on mathematical and theoretical underpinnings. Riffenburgh covers both introductory statistical techniques and advanced methods commonly appearing in medical journals.

Riffenburgh begins with a discussion related to planning studies and writing articles to report results. Following this, he introduces statistics that would typically be covered in an introductory biostatistics course. These include summary statistics, distributions, two-way tables, confidence intervals, and hypothesis tests. In addition, he gives an overview of a variety of more sophisticated statistical techniques such as advanced regression, survival analysis, equivalence testing, Bayesian analysis, and time-series analysis.
