Biostatistics, Second Edition, is a user-friendly guide on biostatistics, which focuses on the proper use and interpretation of statistical methods.

This textbook does not require extensive background in mathematics, making it user-friendly for all students in the public health sciences field.

This updated edition contains over 40% new material with modern real-life examples, exercises, and references, including new chapters on Logistic Regression, Analysis of Survey Data, and Study Designs.

The book is recommended for students in the health sciences, public health professionals, and practitioners.

  • Over 40% new material with modern real-life examples, exercises and references
  • New chapters on Logistic Regression; Analysis of Survey Data; and Study Designs
