BIOSTATISTICS: AN APPLIED INTRODUCTION FOR THE PUBLIC HEALTH PRACTITIONER is designed to help readers understand and apply essential biostatistics concepts. This innovative new book emphasizes real-world public health problems and the research questions they inspire, providing a uniquely practical introduction to the statistical concepts and methods that working professionals use during investigations. Unlike other books that assume a strong knowledge of mathematics or rely heavily on formulas, BIOSTATISTICS consistently emphasizes the public health context, making even complex material both accessible and relevant. The first chapter introduces common statistical terminology by explaining them in clear language, while subsequent chapters explore the most useful and versatile statistical methods for a variety of public health research questions. For each type of question, the author presents a range of applicable methods, from descriptions of data to simple statistical tests, generalized linear models, and multiple variable regression. The book combines step-by-step coverage of fundamental concepts with a great deal of depth and detail, making it equally useful for those new to the field of public health and experienced professionals. Readers of all backgrounds can draw on this invaluable resource to help them interpret and conduct statistical studies and support effective evidence-based practice..
