BIOSTATISTICS: AN APPLIED INTRODUCTION FOR THE PUBLIC HEALTH PRACTITIONER is designed to help you understand and apply essential biostatistics concepts. This innovative new text emphasizes real-world public health problems and the research questions they inspire. This text provides a unique introduction to statistical concepts and methods used by working professionals during investigations. Unlike other texts that assume a strong knowledge of mathematics or rely heavily on formulas, BIOSTATISTICS consistently emphasizes the public health context, making even complex material both accessible and relevant. The first chapter introduces common statistical terminology by explaining them in clear language, while subsequent chapters explore the most useful and versatile statistical methods for a variety of public health research questions. For each type of question, the author presents a range of applicable methods, from descriptions of data to simple statistical tests, generalized linear models, and multiple variable regression. The text’s step-by-step coverage of fundamental concepts is perfect for students new to the field, but its depth and detail also make it ideal for two-course series in M.P.H. or M.H.A. programs, or for working professionals. This invaluable resource will help you interpret and conduct statistical studies and support effective evidence-based practice.
