INTRODUCTORY APPLIED BIOSTATISTICS provides a solid and engaging background for students learning to apply and appropriately interpret statistical applications in the medical and public health fields. The many examples drawn directly from the authors' remarkable clinical experiences with applied biostatistics make this text relevant, practical, and interesting for students. This flexible textbook encourages students to master application techniques by hand before moving on to computer applications, with SAS programming code and output for each technique covered in every chapter. The majority of the textbook addresses methods for statistical inference, including one- and two-sample tests for means and proportions, analysis of variance techniques, correlation, and regression analysis. For each topic, the book addresses methodology, including assumptions, statistical formulas, and appropriate interpretation of results.
