Medical statistics is increasingly important in many areas of medicine and the growing rise of evidence-based medicine will make it still more so. It has critical applications in clinical trials, genetic research, epidemiology and in the design and analysis of medical experiments and surveys. Statistical analyses are now widely reported in published papers and no researcher or practitioner in the health sciences can afford to ignore this crucial subject. The Encyclopaedic Dictionary of Medical Statistics is a straightforward and comprehensive reference source that will be an invaluable guide for those with no formal statistical background and a handy reference for those who do know some statistics. With coverage ranging from simple definitions and basic tests to the latest techniques used at the cutting edge of medical research, this book will be invaluable to anyone working in this field.
