About Book

A broad readership was in mind when this book, Biostatistics: A Basis for Analysis in the Health Sciences, was put together. The authors and their coworkers have used earlier copies of the book in a variety of settings. This version should serve as an introduction to statistical ideas for undergraduates studying the biosciences, health sciences, and mathematics who are interested in learning about practical statistical ideas. This edition, like its predecessors, is intended to address the needs of incoming graduate students in a variety of disciplines, including nursing, applied sciences, and public health, who are looking for a solid foundation in quantitative methods. This edition might be a helpful desk reference for professionals already employed in the healthcare industry.Due to the volume of exercises and the wide range of topics covered in this work, instructors have a lot of freedom in how they can structure their courses. To that end, we provide some topical coverage suggestions below that we have discovered to be helpful in a teaching context.

Like the earlier editions of this book, only a strong understanding of college algebra is needed to read this edition. Instead of focusing on the abstract ideas that underpin some procedures and call for more sophisticated mathematical skills, we have continued to place more emphasis on the practical and intuitive grasp of principles. In light of this, we have continued to rely on problem sets and examples that are directly pulled from the literature in the health sciences rather than ones that are made up.. This, in our opinion, makes the material more engaging for students and more useful for working health professionals who refer to it while carrying out their jobs.

The use of computer software for computations is covered for the majority of the examples and statistical methods given in this version. Our choice to include sample prints from a range of statistical applications in this version is based on experience (e.g., MINITAB, SAS, SPSS, and R). We believe that including examples from these specific packages—which are typically the ones that practitioners use the most—provides a rich overview of the subject and gives students the chance to understand the many technologies employed by working statisticians.
