AbstractThe Encyclopedia of Biostatistics is an outstanding achievement in scientific publishing comprising over 1200 articles written by more than 800 contributors. A truly international work, it includes extensive coverage of statistical issues pertinent to life scientists, healthcare professionals and practising statisticians.
Entries cover everything from basic statistical concepts, to practical issues arising in research or medical administration, through to the most advanced methods and theoretical developments. Each contribution has been carefully selected and reviewed through the collaborative efforts of the Editors-in-Chief, Peter Armitage (Oxford, UK) and Ted Colton (Boston, USA), with further assistance from an editorial board that spans Europe, North America, Australia, Asia and the Middle East.
This major publication is easily accessible for all those involved in statistical activities in medicine and health sciences, from health professionals who are not highly trained in statistics, through to fully qualified and experienced statisticians.
