The tradition of epidemiological study through observation and the use of vital statistics dates back to the 18th century in Britain. At the close of the 19th century, . statistics to epidemiology and public health? The natural inclination is a long litany of statistical methods used daily by epidemiologists, including methods for. Epidemiology and biostatistics are the basic sciences of public health Biostatistics is the application of statistics to problems in the biological sciences, health.
I have provided a spreadsheet to perform many of the statistical tests. Each comes with sample data already entered; just download the spreadsheet, replace the sample data with your data, and you'll have your answer. The spreadsheets were written for Excel, but they should also work using the free program Calc, part of the OpenOffice. If you're using OpenOffice. Let me know if you have a problem using one of the spreadsheets, and I'll try to fix it. I've also linked to a web page for each test wherever possible.
I found most of these web pages using John Pezzullo's excellent list of Interactive Statistical Calculation Pages , which is a good place to look for information about tests that are not discussed in this handbook.
There are instructions for performing each statistical test in SAS, as well. It's not as easy to use as the spreadsheets or web pages, but if you're going to be doing a lot of advanced statistics, you're going to have to learn SAS or a similar program sooner or later.
I've got a page on the basics of SAS. Salvatore Mangiafico has written An R Companion to the Handbook of Biological Statistics , available as a free set of web pages and also as a free pdf.
R is a free statistical programming language, useable on Windows, Mac, or Linux computers, that is becoming increasingly popular among serious users of statistics.
Mangiafico's book provides example programs for nearly all of the statistical tests I describe in the Handbook, plus useful notes on getting started in R. Printed version While this handbook is primarily designed for online use, you may find it convenient to print out some or all of the pages.
If you print a page, the sidebar on the left, the banner, and the decorative pictures cute critters, etc. I'm not sure how well printing will work with various browsers and operating systems, so if the pages don't print properly, please let me know.
