The authors have written a very readable book focusing on the most widely used regression models in biostatistics: Multiple linear regression, logistic regression and Cox regression.

The authors have written a very readable book focusing on the most widely used regression models in biostatistics: Multiple linear regression, logistic regression and Cox regression. The book is written for a non-statistical audience, focusing on ideas and how to interpret result. .The book will b. seful as a reference to give to a non-statistical colleagu.

This new book provides a unified, in-depth, readable introduction to the multipredictor regression methods most widely used in biostatistics: linear models for continuous outcomes, logistic models for binary outcomes, the Cox model for right-censored survival times, repeated-measures models for longitudinal and hierarchical outcomes, and generalized linear models for counts and other outcomes. The senior author, Charles E. McCulloch, is head of the Division and author of Generalized Linear Mixed Models (2003), Generalized, Linear, and Mixed Models (2000), and Variance Components (1992).

Eric Vittinghoff, David Glidden, Steve Shiboski, Charles E. McCulloch. Regression Methods in Biostatistics is clearly a very well-organized book, covering topics from simple linear regression theory and methods, to the more complex survival analyses. The material is especially recommended for students who have just completed introductory biostatistics and statistical programming, and are looking for practical applications of their skills (of course, for those looking for more thorough practice, it is recommended that those individuals take more advanced biostatistics courses).

Eric Vittinghoff Stephen C. McCulloch Regression Methods in Biostatistics Linear, Logistic, Survival, and Repeated Measures Models With 54 Illustrations. Looking beyond the clustering and repeated measures (which are covered in Chap. 8), what if physicians with more aggressive approaches to back pain also tended to have older patients? If older patients recover more slowly (re- gardless of treatment), then even if differences in treatment aggressiveness.

This new book provides a unified, in-depth, readable introduction to the multipredictor regression methods most widely used in biostatistics: linear models for continuous outcomes, logistic models for binary outcomes, the Cox model for right-censored survival times, repeated-measures models for longitudinal and hierarchical outcomes, and generalized linear models for counts and other outcomes.

Treating these topics together takes advantage of all they have in common. The authors point out the many-shared elements in the methods they present for selecting, estimating, checking, and interpreting each of these models. They also show that these regression methods deal with confounding, mediation, and interaction of causal effects in essentially the same way.

The examples, analyzed using Stata, are drawn from the biomedical context but generalize to other areas of application. While a first course in statistics is assumed, a chapter reviewing basic statistical methods is included. Some advanced topics are covered but the presentation remains intuitive. A brief introduction to regression analysis of complex surveys and notes for further reading are provided.
