Basics of Biostatistics: A Manual for the Medical Practitioners

by Jatinder Bali, Anil Kant

Biostatistics is the branch of statistics that deals with data relating to living organisms. Basics of Biostatistics: A Manual for the Medical Practitioners is one of the few books on statistics written to provide the practical help to the medical professionals. This book comprised of 9 sections that focuses on bioethics, evidence-based medicine, research methodology, describing the data, probability, probability distribution and sampling, correlation, regression, partial and multiple correlation and regression, theory of attributes, statistical testing, other statistical concepts frequently used in research, statistical concepts for medical administration, and report writing and applying for grants, which are further divided into 34 chapters. The chapter Measurement and Error Analysis was incorporated because of the medical mindset of the authors whose focus is often research papers and clinical trials. Additional topics such as life table, Kaplan-Meier curves, interpolation, time series, etc. also have been included. Subjects such as statistical quality control, decision theory, index number, which find use in medical administration, also get a fair treatment. The appeal of this book lies in the fact that everyone—from the students to the hardened primary investigators—will find this book very useful. And the useful chapters will keep on changing with the level of expertise developed.
