Regression Methods in Biostatistics

February 10, 2008

This book is about regression techniques commonly used when modeling continuous and/or binary outcomes in biomedical studies.

Starting from the most basic techniques (but too often neglected, to my opinion) of exploratory and descriptive techniques (Chap. 2, graphical and numerical summaries), the authors devote an entire chapter (Chap. 3) to give the reader a clear overview of classical multivariate techniques used to characterize association between categorical and continuous variable (including censored data). Next, they provide an in-depth coverage of each of these methods in separate chapter. This includes:

This really is a must-have one book for every practician interested in regression modeling for the life sciences.
