Interpreting Epidemiologic Evidence: Connecting Research to Applications

David A. Savitz and Gregory A. Wellenius

Abstract

Interpreting Epidemiologic Evidence offers those who have had an introductory course in epidemiology the knowledge they need to make clear connections from research findings to practical applications. Written in clear and lively prose, it empowers students at all levels to evaluate a study’s design, implementation, and ultimate findings, giving the guidance needed to apply the information appropriately. Liberal use of practical examples serves both to illustrate core concepts and to motivate readers to think critically about the causal connections that population health studies aim to explore.

Keywords: Epidemiology, population health, study design, study implementation, study findings
