Together with Volume I, this work provides a comprehensive account of the major types of studies in cancer epidemiology. Its scope ranges from an account of elementary and descriptive cohort analyses to the fitting of regression models for incidence rates with general risk functions. Particular attention is given to the use of a case-control approach embedded in a cohort study. As in the first volume, all methods are illustrated by examples from real studies, and the data are appended to the text, enabling readers to rework the computations.
