Summary "Modern Epidemiology covers a broad range of concepts and methods, including epidemiologic measures of occurrence and effect, study designs, validity, precision, statistical reference, and causal diagrams. Topics in data analysis range from basic tabular analyses to stratified analysis, multiple comparisons, Bayesian analysis, sensitivity analysis, and bias analysis, with an extensive overview of modern regression methods including logistic and survival regression, splines, hierarchical (multilevel) regression, propensity scores and other scoring methods, and g-estimation."--BOOK JACKET
