About this title


Epidemiology is a subject of growing importance, as witnessed by its role in the description and prediction of the impact of new diseases such as AIDS and new-variant CJD.

Epidemiology: Study Design and Data Analysis covers the whole spectrum of standard analytical techniques used in epidemiology, from descriptive techniques in report writing to model diagnostics from generalized linear models.

The author discusses the advantages, disadvantages, and alternatives to case-control, cohort and intervention studies and details such crucial concepts as incidence, prevalence, confounding and interaction. Many exercises are provided, based on real epidemiological data sets collected from all over the world. The data sets are also available on an associated web site. Epidemiology: Study Design and Data Analysis will be an invaluable textbook for statistics and medical students studying epidemiology, and a standard reference for practicing epidemiologists.


As a text in quantitative Epidemiology, this book also works nicely as a text in Biostatistics...The presentation style is relaxed, the examples are helpful, and the level of technical difficulty makes the material approachable without oversimplification...It is sufficiently broad and deep in coverage to compete with standard texts in the field and has the added bonus of emphasizing study design. Methods and issues related to designs commonly used in a wide variety of health sciences are included...
-Ken Hess, Department of Biomathematics and Biostatistics, Anderson Cancer Center

The second edition of this epidemiology text is strengthened to cater to the two audiences the author has in mind: applied statisticians wishing to learn how their statistical expertise can be used in the epidemiology field and statistic-curious researchers who want to understand how statistical techniques can be used to solve epidemiological problems. ...The result is a book that will invariably appeal to the intended audience, one with practical applications of techniques and interpretations of results in an epidemiological context. ...The book is most certainly an ambitious attempt at covering a broad array of the most important epidemiologic study designs and analytical methods. This is further enforced by the addition of the meta-analysis chapter. ...This book will be valuable to statisticians in applying their discipline to epidemiology. Mark Woodward's excellent second edition will effectively serve post-graduate or advanced undergraduate students studying epidemiology, as well as statisticians or researchers who are regularly confronted with epidemiological questions.
-Journal of the American Statistical Association

This book provides very good coverage of major issues in the design of epidemiological studies, and a decent, but very quick, tour of commonly used statistical models for such studies.
-Short Book Reviews Publication of the International Statistical Institute, K.S. Brown, University of Waterloo, Canada

Amazingly, Woodward manages to describe quite sophisticated models and analysis with nothing more complicated than summation signs. ...I highly recommend it.
-Statistics in Medicine, 2006

The second edition of this concisely written book covers all statistical methods being of relevance for the planning and analysis of epidemiological studies where the author avoids unnecessary mathematical details for the sake of comprehensibility. The presented statistical principles are always carefully discussed in the context of epidemiological concepts, for instance depending on the different study designs. Detailed practical examples coming from real studies as far as possible illustrate their application. ...The book can be highly recommended to researchers in epidemiology who want to understand better the statistical principles being typically applied in this field and to statisticians who want to understand more about statistics in epidemiology, but also to graduate students in epidemiology, public health, medical research and statistics.
-Biometrics, Sept. 2005

...I think anyone with an interest in both biostatistics and epidemiology will want a copy this book on their bookshelf... it is a first-rate reference book.

I find Professor Woodward's text the most complete and practical introduction to the design and analysis of epidemiological studies I've encountered... an excellent text for either a course introducing epidemiologists to statistical thought and methods or a course introducing statisticians to epidemiological thought and methods... students appreciate having a readable textbook replete with understandable examples and worked exercises...offers a complete introduction to statistical and epidemiological methods in the study of disease in human populations. All of the standard topics are included, and the second edition even has a chapter on meta-analysis.

...This book can be used as a text to introduce epidemiological methods to graduate students in statistics who have no background in epidemiology, or vice versa...

...Professor Woodward is to be congratulated on a job well done.
-Dan McGee, Dept of Statistics, Florida State University
