This chapter discusses the effects of chance variation that can be assessed by applying statistical tests. It is divided into three parts: the application of statistical tests and confidence limits to a simple 2 x 2 table; applications to stratified and matched studies, and to multivariate analysis; and life-table methods for the consideration of the timing of outcome events in a cohort study or intervention study. Self-test questions are provided at the end of the chapter.
