Basic statistics: a primer for the Biomedical Sciences (2nd edition)

This introduction to modern statistics for biomedical applications has been revised to make it even more useful to people in Public Health, epidemiology, and medical research. Retaining its nonmathematical approach, the text requires only one year of high school algebra as a prerequisite. The author has added two chapters—one on vital statistics and demography and another on life tables. The material on tests for equality of variances has been condensed. More complete and convenient tables have been included and up–to–date examples illustrate basic concepts. The book will be helpful to the medical professional who is involved in research, either through active participation or evaluating the research of others. It also provides an introduction for those who plan to pursue advanced studies in biomedical statistics.
