This new first edition from seasoned author, Ray Merrill, explores how epidemiologic methods are conducted and interpreted. In four sections, Methods in Epidemiologic Research covers basic concepts in epidemiology, study designs, data analysis, and special topics. Each chapter includes a section on how a specific epidemiologic method has resulted in findings that have influenced health policy and public health. Each chapter also offers an optional section involving more advanced methods. At the end of each chapter, an applications section gives the student a clear picture of how epidemiologic methods are applied in real-world situations. Special emphasis is given to interpreting the results. SAS code is presented in an Appendix that corresponds to assessing selected methods.
