Sommario/riassunto

This new edition explains the principles and practice of epidemiology. Using relevant exercises and examples, taken from real life, it illustrates how to set up a study; it serves to produce valid results that will satisfy grant bodies and journal editors; ultimately it bridges the gap between theory and practice.
