Title:Statistical Methods for Disease Clustering [electronic resource]
Author(s): Toshiro Tango
Date:2010
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The development of powerful computing environment and the geographical information system (GIS) in recent decades has thrust the analysis of geo-referenced disease incidence data into the mainstream of spatial epidemiology. Thisbook offers a modern p erspective on statistical methods for detecting disease clustering, an indispensable procedure to find a statistical evidence on aetiology of the disease under study. With increasing public health concerns aboutenvironmental risks, the need for sophistica ted methods for analyzing spatial health events is immediate. Furthermore, the research area of statistical methods for disease clustering now attracts a wide audience due to the perceivedneed to implement wide-ranging monitoring systems to detect possibl e health-related events such as the occurrence of the severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS), pandemic influenza and bioterrorism As an invaluable resource for a widerange of audience including public health researchers, epidemiologists and biostatistia ns, this book features: A concise introduction to basic concepts of disease clustering/clusters A historical overview of methods for diseaseclustering A detailed treatment of selected methods useful for practical investigation of disease clustering Analys is and illustration of methods for a variety of real data sets Toshiro Tango, Ph.D., is the Director of Department ofTechnology Assessment and Biostatistics of National Institute of Public Health, Japan. He has published a number of methodological and app lied articles on various aspects of biostatistics. He is Past President of the Japanese Region ofthe International Biometric Society.

Note:Hardly a day goes by without news headlines concerning infectious disease threats. Currently the spectre of a pandemic of influenza A|H1N1 is raising its head, and heated debates are taking place about the pros and cons ofvaccinating young girls agai nst human papilloma virus. For an evidence-based and responsible communication of infectious disease topics to avoid misunderstandings and overreaction of the public, we need solid scientific knowledge andan understanding of all aspects of infectious dise ases and their control. The aim of our book is to present the reader with the general picture and the main ideas of the subject. The book introduces the reader to methodological aspectsof epidemiology that are specific for infectious diseases and provides insight into the epidemiology of some classes of infectious diseases characterized by their main modes of transmission. This choice of topics bridges the gapbetween scientific research on the clinical, biological, mathematical, social and economic aspect s of infectious diseases and their applications in public health. The book will help the reader to understand the impact of infectiousdiseases on modern society and the instruments that policy makers have at their disposal to deal with these challenges. I t is written for students of the health sciences, both of curative medicine and public health, and for expertsthat are active in these and related domains, and it may be of interest for the educated layman since the technical level is kept relatively low. The authors are internationally renowned experts in the field of infectious diseaseepidemiology. The editors come from different scientific backgrounds but have been devoted to research in infectious disease epidemiology for many years.

Title:The Statistical Analysis of Recurrent Events [electronic resource]

Jerald F Lawless
Date:2007
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Recurrent event data arise in diverse fields such as medicine, public health, insurance, social science, economics, manufacturing and reliability. The purpose of this book is to present models and statistical methods for theanalysis of recurrent even t data. No single comprehensive treatment of these areas currently exists. The authors provide broad but detailed coverage of the major approaches to analysis, while also emphasizing the modeling assumptionsthat they are based on. Thus, they consider impo rtant models such as Poisson and renewal processes, with extensions to incorporate covariates or random effects. More general intensity-based models are also considered, as well assimpler models that focus on rate or mean functions. Parametric, nonparamet ric and semiparametric methodologies are all covered, with clear descriptions of procedures for estimation, testing and model checking. Important practicaltopics such as observation schemes and selection of individuals for study, the planning of randomize d experiments, events of several types, and the prediction of future events are considered. Methods of modeling and analysis areillustrated through many examples taken from health research and industry. The objectives and interpretations of different anal yses are discussed in detail, and issues of robustness are addressed. Statistical analysis of the examplesis carried out with S-PLUS software and code is given for some examples. This book is directed at graduate students, researchers, and applied statist icians working in industry, government or academia. Some familiarity with survivalanalysis is beneficial since survival software is used to carry out many of the analyses considered. This book can be used as a textbook for a graduate course on the analysi s of recurrent events or as a reference for a more generalcourse on event history analysis. Problems are given at the end of chapters to reinforce the material presented and to provide additional backgr

Title:Modeling Longitudinal Data [electronic resource]
Author(s): Robert E Weiss
Date:2005
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Longitudinal data are ubiquitous across Medicine, Public Health, Public Policy, Psychology, Political Science, Biology, Sociology and Education, yet many longitudinal data sets remain improperly analyzed. This book teaches the artand statistical scie nce of modern longitudinal data analysis. The author emphasizes specifying, understanding, and interpreting longitudinal data models. He inspects the longitudinal data graphically, analyzes the time trend andcovariates, models the covariance matrix, and t hen draws conclusions. Covariance models covered include random effects, autoregressive, autoregressive moving average, antedependence, factor analytic, and completely unstructured modelsamong others. Longer expositions explore: an introduction to and cri tique of simple non-longitudinal analyses of longitudinal data, missing data concepts, diagnostics, and simultaneous modeling of two longitudinal variables.Applications and issues for random effects models cover estimation, shrinkage, clustered data, mode ls for binary and count data and residuals and residual plots. Shorter sections include a general discussion of how computationalalgorithms work, handling transformed data, and basic design issues. This book requires a solid regression course as backgroun d and is particularly intended for the final year of a Biostatistics or Statistics Masters degree curriculum.The mathematical prerequisite is generally low, mainly assuming familiarity with regression analysis in matrix form. Doctoral students in Biostati stics or Statistics, applied researchers and quantitative doctoral students indisciplines such as Medicine, Public Health, Public Policy, Psychology, Political Science, Biology, Sociology and Education will find this book invaluable. The book has many fig ures and tables illustrating longitudinal data andnumerous homework problems. The associated web site contains many longitudinal data sets, examples of computer code, and labs to re-enforce the material
