An introductory textbook on biostatistics--the use of numerical techniques to extract information from data and facts--for students of the health sciences. It is based on a required course offered at the Harvard School of Public Health. Some of the exercises require the use of a computer and the text includes a 5.25" disk which contains the data sets used (they're also included in an appendix). Annotation c.
