This introduction to basic statistical concepts and reasoning is suitable for students and professionals in medicine and allied health fields in courses in biostatistics. It takes a problems-based approach to statistical methods, using real-life examples with real data. Emphasis is on descriptive statistics, with less emphasis on data collection. Coverage progresses from proportions, rates, and ratios to confidence estimation, comparison of population means, and regression analysis. For this edition, a new chapter on regression and correlation has been added. Also new to this edition are notes on Microsoft's Excel, and samples of SAS computer programs. Annotation c.
