Interpreting Epidemiologic Evidence

Strategies for Study Design & Analysis

David A. Savitz

This book offers a strategy for assessing epidemiologic research findings. Specific tools for assessing the presence and impact of selection bias in both cohort and case-control studies, bias from non-response, confounding, exposure measurement error, disease measurement error, and random error are identified and evaluated. Such information should help those who generate and interpret epidemiological research make a more accurate appraisal of the current evidence and gain greater clarity about research needs.
