Describes and compares a variety of statistical methods for the analysis of biomedical data. Statistical procedures are described by presenting worked examples for each type of procedure. Coverage includes: methods for comparing two groups, methods for evaluating the association between two variables, techniques for epidemiological analysis of 2x2 tables and procedures for estimation and comparison of survival curves. Presents both parametric and non-parametric procedures throughout the text. Additional topics detailed include observer agreement, standardization of rates and methods for analysis of odds ratio.

Praise for the First Edition
"This text is a very welcome addition to the field, both as a reference and classroom text."
-Publication of the International Statistical Institute
"This book is a perfectly organized source of reference for elementary statistical procedures used in clinical trials."
"I would recommend this book as an introductory biostatistics text for its clear presentation and worked examples, particularly in the chapters on the comparison of groups."
-Statistics in Medicine
Statistical Methods for the Analysis of Biomedical Data surveys a number of statistical topics commonly used in the analysis of biological and medical data, as well as several other topics such as observer agreement, standardization of rates, and methods for analysis of odds ratio. Applied in its approach, the book describes statistical procedures through the introduction of worked examples for each procedure.
The Second Edition includes a new chapter on multiple linear regression methods, new sections in each chapter on using SAS for computations, and revised and expanded problems. This authoritative volume also:
* Is organized by problem rather than method, guiding readers to the correct technique for solving the problem at hand
* Compares, in cases where more than one technique is applicable, the advantages and disadvantages of each option
* Develops, in detail, solutions to practical problems of design and analysis through worked examples
* Demonstrates how SAS output illustrates the results of analyses of true-to-life applications, such as predicting systolic blood pressure as a function of age, height, weight, and gender from data taken on Muscatine teenagers
* Includes methods for comparing two or more groups and evaluating the association between two variables, techniques for epidemiological analysis of 2x2 tables, and procedures for estimation and comparing survival curves
Statistical Methods for the Analysis of Biomedical Data makes an ideal reference for analysts and researchers in biostatistics, medicine, and other health-related fields, as well as a textbook for graduate courses in biostatistics.
