Exercises in Epidemiology: Applying Principles and Methods

Noel S. Weiss

Abstract

Most epidemiology workbooks are used as supplements to existing texts. The student reads the chapter, finds the answers, and fills in the right blanks. This is good for understanding basic principles and methods, but for students looking for real-world examples to sharpen their skills, there is Exercises in Epidemiology. The book’s seven chapters cover issues such as rates and proportions, causal inference, confounding, cohort studies, case-control studies, multiple causal pathways and effect modification, and screening.

Keywords: Epidemiology, rates and proportions, causal inference, confounding, cohort studies, case-control studies, multiple causal pathways, effect modification, screening
