Overview

Successfully tested in the authors' courses at Boston University and Harvard University, this text combines theory and practice in presenting traditional and new epidemiologic concepts. Broad in scope, the text opens with five chapters covering the basic epidemiologic concepts and data sources. A major emphasis is placed on study design, with separate chapters devoted to each of the three main analytic designs: experimental, cohort, and case-control studies.

Full chapters on bias, confounding, and random error, including the role of statistics in epidemiology, ensure that students are well-equipped with the necessary information to interpret the results of epidemiologic studies. An entire chapter is also devoted to the concept of effect measure modification, an often-neglected topic in introductory textbooks. Up-to-date examples from the epidemiologic literature on diseases of public health importance are provided throughout the book.

The Third Edition is a thorough update that offers:
• New examples, the latest references, and public health statistics.
• Nearly 50 new review questions.
• Updated discussion of certain epidemiologic methods.
• New figures depicting epidemiologic concepts.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: James C. Torner, PhD, MS (University of Iowa College of Public Health)
Description: This general introductory textbook provides an overview of the basics of epidemiology measurement, design, and issues.
Purpose: This is an update of a prior version at more of a conceptual level to challenge public health students. This is a worthy objective because students need to think more critically about the conduct of research. In general, the book covers topics that are essential to the understanding of epidemiological methods.
Audience: Although the book is oriented to new students, those learning about clinical research also would find it useful. Most of the chapters would be redundant for the advanced student. The authors are established professors of epidemiology.
Features: The book covers the development of epidemiology, the measures used in epidemiological evaluation, and the study designs. The authors include several chapters on bias, confounding, and effect modification. The chapters on critical review and the epidemiological framework of causation are the main highlights.
Assessment: The presentation is similar to other introductory texts. The critical assessment of design, measurement, and conduct is an important aspect of this book and is an improvement over the first edition.
