A Dictionary of Epidemiology

Fifth Edition

Edited by Miquel Porta

The new edition of this classic text remains the definitive dictionary in epidemiology. In fact, it is more than a dictionary, with some reviewers remarking that if they had to limit their professional library to one volume, this would be the book they would choose. In the complex field of epidemiology, the definition and concise explanation of terms is a key to understanding epidemiologic concepts, and the dictionary goes beyond simple definitions, as it place each term firmly and clearly in its fuller epidemiologic context. It clarifies concepts, fills the gap in one's education, and jogs the memory of nearly forgotten terms.
