Contents:
Basic concepts -- Statistical inference -- Descriptive studies -- Analytical studies -- Statistical tests -- Issues with statistical tests -- Longitudinal studies -- Statistical modelling -- Measurement -- Experimental studies -- The analysis of experimental studies -- Meta-analysis of clinical trials.
Summary: Study design and statistical methodology are two important concerns for the clinical researcher. This book sets out to address both issues in a clear and concise manner. The presentation of statistical theory starts from basic concepts, such as the properties of means and variances, the properties of the Normal distribution and the Central Limit Theorem and leads to more advanced topics such as maximum likelihood estimation, inverse variance and stepwise regression as well as, time-to-event, and event-count methods. Furthermore, this book explores sampling methods, study design and statistics.
