Population health encompasses traditional public health and preventive medicine but emphasizes the full range of health determinants affecting the entire population rather than only ill or high-risk individials. The population health approach integrates the social and biological, the quantitative and qualitative, recognizing the importance of social and cultural factors in practice and research. This text is organized around the key objectives of population health risks and inferring causation, and planning and evaluating population health interventions. It is designed for use in introductory/intermediate courses in epidemiology, public health, and health policy and management. It emphasizes basic concepts and methods and makes use of case studies, exercises, and boxes to introduce students to the full range of population health issues seen in the literature.

Review:

" .. a superb introduction both to [population health] and to epidemiology. ... The many Canadian examples are especially welcome ... excellent support for a different type of introductory course for graduate students in epidemiology, providing them with the context of their discipline, and introducing its methods. ... the book should be of interest to health professionals and policy-makers: in addition to providing the technical material, it is a good read." Annals RCPSC (vol.32, no.2, Mar. 1999)

In Population Health: Concepts and Methods, Dr. Kue Young... skillfully applies his over 10 years experience teaching introductory epidemiology at a graduate level... The concepts that are critical to an understanding of population epidemiology are covered in a way that will make for a light yet interesting reading for introductory to intermediate level students." --American Journal of Human Biology

"This beautifully crafted textbook fills a long-empty niche in public health training. It provides between one set of covers a comprehensive introduction to all the quantitative methods for the assessment of population health status that the average health professional needs to know....The whole effect is very refreshing and holistic--this is a book that can really be used to give a broad...picture of how we know what we do about the health of populations....Another great strength of this book is the rich, up-to-date examples of all the main ideas presented..."--Chronic Diseases in Canada

"This text fills a significant need for public health students and practitioners alike....In accomplishing its primary purpose, this book brings epidemiology to life while arming current and future public health professionals with tools and skills to measure and improve the health of populations."--Choice

"This text fills a significant need for public health students and practitioners alike. Important and useful epidemiological concepts are brought to life through the organization of the book and its many practical examples and exercises. In accomplishing its primary purpose, this book brings epidemiology to life while arming current and future public health professionals with tools and skills to measure and improve the health of populations."--Doody's Journal

"...the book should be of interest to health professionals and policy-makers: in addition to providing the technical material, it is good read."---Annals of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada

" This beautifully crafted textbook fills a long-empty niche in public health training. It provides between one set of covers a comprehensive introduction to all the quantitative methods for the assessment of population health status that the average health professional needs to know. ... Full-fledged epidemiologists may also find it useful in teaching basic concepts -- especially to undergraduates or non-specialist graduate students ... clear, simple explanation of almost every basic idea in epidemiology. Overall rating: Excellent; Strengths: Fresh, comprehensive and up to date, with many Canadian examples -- it fills an empty textbook niche." Chronic Diseases in Canada (1999)
