This sixth edition of A Dictionary of Epidemiology - the most updated since its inception - reflects the profound substantive and methodological changes that have come to characterize epidemiology and its associated disciplines. Sponsored by the International Epidemiological Association, this book remains the essential reference for anyone studying or working in epidemiology, biostatistics, public health, medicine, or the growing number health sciences in which epidemiologic competency is now required. More than just a dictionary, this text is an essential guidebook to the state of the science. It offers the most current, authoritative definitions of terms central to biomedical and public health literature - everything from confounding and incidence rate to epigenetic inheritance and Number Needed to Treat. As epidemiology continues to change and grow, A Dictionary of Epidemiology will remain its book of record.

Reviews

I will not hold back: a dictionary is abslutely necessary and it is a pleasure to hold the new edition and browse through it. * International Journal of Epidemiology * The dictionary was a source of fascinating insights in the subjects I know and a challenging and tantalizing introduction to subjects I do not know... [It] is an essential companion in the serious study of, and engagement with, epidemiology and its codependent disciplines.,, It is a vital resource for students, practitioners, teachers, and researchers. * Annals of Epidemiology * This dictionary continues to be the definitive source of epidemiological terms, concepts, and measures. It clarifies the language for a discipline that evolves with time. The updates in this edition justify replacement of all prior editions in your collection. * Doody's Notes *
