Monitoring the Health of Populations

Statistical Principles and Methods for Public Health Surveillance

Edited by Ron Brookmeyer and Donna F. Stroup

Advances in statistical techniques, computing power and the Internet have led to an explosion of new approaches to monitoring population health, analyzing the data, and rapidly sharing it. This text explores the critical issues in the statistical analysis and interpretations of health surveillance data. It will serve as a reference for public health practitioners and as a textbook for students of statistics, biostatistics, epidemiology or public health taking courses on disease surveillance.
