    Epidemiology, Fourth Edition

    Epidemiology: Beyond the Basics, Fourth Edition by Moyses Szklo and F. Javier Nieto just received a 4-star review from Doody's Review Service. According to Natalie J. Del Vecchio, MS, BS, from the University of Iowa College of Public Health, the text is,

    "…a worthwhile contribution to the field. [Topics are] thoroughly covered and include detailed and relevant explanation and examples. There's no doubt that intermediate epidemiology students will find it a useful resource."

    Epidemiology, Fourth EditionWritten for those who are familiar with the basic strategies of analytic epidemiology, Epidemiology: Beyond the Basics, Fourth Edition takes readers through a more rigorous discussion of key epidemiologic concepts and methods, such as study design, measures of association, research assessment, and more. 

    The Fourth Edition offers updated examples and new exercises in each chapter as well as many new discussions of topics such as:

    • Prevalence ratios vs. odds ratios
    • Inverse probability weighting as a technique for correcting for selection bias
    • Regression to the mean as a source of confounding (Glymour bias)
    • Mediation analysis
    • Correction for competing causes in multivariate analysis
    • The extension of the Cox model for the analysis of nested case-control studies
    • Multilevel analysis
