From the Back Cover:

This is the sixth edition of Survey Methods in Community Medicine, which has established itself as a standard guide to the design, conduct, and analysis of studies concerned with health, disease, and health care.

It is written for students and practitioners of community medicine and public health (epidemiologists, family physicians, nurses, health educators, administrators, and others) who are interested in planning investigations of groups and populations, such as health surveys, cohort studies, comparisons of cases and controls, prophylactic and therapeutic trials, and other epidemiological and evaluative research.  The book may also be helpful to non-researchers who wish to enhance their capacity for the judicious appraisal of medical literature.

It is a step by step guide to the design, conduct and analysis of these studies, and assumes little prior knowledge, but has copious notes and references for the benefit of readers who wish to learn more.

This edition has been revised and updated throughout, with the addition of -

  • A new chapter on the use of the Web in health research.
  • A guide to free computer programs for use in the planning, performance, and analysis of studies.
