This sophisticated package of statistical methods is for advanced master's (MPH) and PhD students in public health and epidemiology who are involved in the analysis of data. It makes the link from statistical theory to data analysis, focusing on the methods and data types most common in public health and related fields. Like most toolboxes, the statistical tools in this book are organized into sections with similar objectives. Unlike most toolboxes, however, these tools are accompanied by complete instructions, explanations, detailed examples, and advice on relevant issues and potential pitfalls - conveying skills, intuition, and experience. The only prerequisite is a first-year statistics course and familiarity with a computing package such as R, Stata, SPSS, or SAS. Though the book is not tied to a particular computing language, its figures and analyses were all created using R. Relevant R code, data sets, and links to public data sets are available from www.cambridge.org/9781107113084.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Professor Selvin is a master at making statistical procedures and their complex underpinnings accessible to students of all levels of expertise. This book is a brilliant compendium of Professor Selvin's tremendous understanding of the breadth and depth of biostatistical tools that he delivers to the reader with superb clarity. A broad range of salient statistical concepts are covered, pleasantly anchored with a brief history, described formally for the more initiated reader, and expertly illustrated with real-life data examples that are readily understood by the less mathematically inclined. Researchers from a myriad of scientific disciplines seeking masterful guidance about conducting their statistical data analysis will absolutely want this book at their fingertips.'
