This book is an expanded version of the Kahn's widely used text, An Introduction to Epidemiologic Methods (Oxford, 1983). It provides clear insight into the basic statistical tools used in epidemiology and is written so that those without advanced statistical training can comprehend the ideas underlying the analytical techniques. The authors emphasize the extent to which similar results are obtained from different methods, both simple and complex. To this edition they have added a new chapter on "Comparison of Numerical Results for Various Methods of Adjustment" and also one on "The Primacy of Data Collection." New topics include the Kaplan-Meier product-limit method and the Cox proportional hazards model for analysis of time-related outcomes. An appendix of data from the Framingham Heart Study is used to illustrate the application of various analytical methods to an identical set of real data and provides source material for student exercises. The text has been updated throughout.

From reviews of An Introduction to Epidemiologic Methods:
"Rarely does one find a new book in epidemiology or statistics which genuinely fills a gap in the literature. What makes this volume such a marvelous discovery is that it summarizes many of the essentials of epidemiological statistics that were previously described only in journal articles or
more mathematical texts. Accordingly, any unit concerned with teaching or research in statistical epidemiology should find this book's clear and concise style a valuable aid to their activities." --The Lancet
"At last! A text for introductory epidemiology courses which is neither too elementary not too advanced. It covers essential epidemiological topics in a very practical, biostatistical way. It fills a real need for a biostatistically oriented text for non-biostatisticians, and will complement
nicely any of the less methodological introductory texts in epidemiology." --Epidemiology Monitor
"Both concise and readable.... Does a good job of summarizing the various statistical methods used for analyzing epidemiological studies. There is much statistical information in this text which is useful and attractively written, making it a useful reference text." --International Journal of
"This book provides excellent coverage at a level ideally suited to a first course in statistical methods for epidemiologists."--Jesse A. Berlin, University of Pennsylvania, School of Medicine
