This introduction to biostatistics offers health science students with limited mathematics and statistics backgrounds a conceptually-based introduction to statistical procedures that will prepare them to conduct or evaluate research in biological and health sciences. Students are encouraged to use common sense rather than rigorous theory to gain an understanding of statistics. The authors rely heavily on graphics to illustrate material and incorporate the use of computers to facilitate doing computations so students can concentrate on concepts. Quantitative principles discussed include descriptive statistics, life tables, probability, hypothesis testing, parameter estimation, regression (linear and logistic) correlation, survival analysis and analysis of variance more.
