Comment from the Stata technical group

The third edition of Principles of Biostatistics by Marcello Pagano, Kimberlee Gauvreau, and Heather Mattie continues to be a wonderful tool for biological and health science students and researchers. The book is divided into three parts: "Variability" (three chapters), "Probability" (four chapters), and "Inference" (fourteen chapters). No prior statistical knowledge is assumed, and basic college math is adequate to understand the occasional mathematical formulas in the text.

Many new topics have been introduced in the third edition, while other topics have been considerably improved and expanded. For instance, material covering screening and diagnostic tests has been given its own chapter. New sections on the Kruskal-Wallis test, the Cox proportional hazards model, and sample-size calculations for a two-sample test on means and proportions have been added. Given the importance of different study designs, a new chapter (the final one) highlights the different characterstics of study designs for randomized and observational studies. A 14-page glossary of definitions for statistical terms has been added to the end of the book as well. Each chapter now has summary boxes that include the relevant mathematical formulas for ease of reference. The new edition also expands the Review Exercises sections and continues to use real published datasets that are available here. Stata and R code for the computer output in the book are also provided.
