Principles of Biostatistics (2nd Edition) – eBook PDF
Principles of Biostatistics, 2nd Edition, (PDF) is aimed at students in the health and biological sciences who wish to learn modern research methods. It is based on a compulsory course offered at the Harvard School of Public Health. Besides these graduate students, many health professionals from the Harvard medical area attend as well.
The ebook is divided into three parts. The first five chapters talk about collections of numbers and ways in which to summarize, explore, and explain them. The next two chapters emphasize probability and introduce the tools needed for the subsequent investigation of uncertainty. Only in the eighth chapter and afterward, the authors distinguish between populations and samples and begin to explore the inherent variability introduced by sampling, thus progressing to inference. Postponing the slightly harder concepts until a solid foundation has been established makes it easier for the reader to comprehend them.
