Population Health

Concepts and Methods

Second Edition

T. Kue Young, M.D.

This text has a strong base in epidemiology and is organized around the logical sequence of studying and attempting to improve the health of populations: measuring health status and disease burden, identifying and modeling health determinants, assessing health risks and inferring causation, designing research studies, planning interventions, and evaluating health programs. The second edition incorporates many new topics that reflect changes in contemporary public health concerns, such as lifecourse approaches to health, gene-environment interactions, emergent infections, and bioterrorism.
