Description

Basics of Biostatistics: A Manual for the Medical Practitioners is one of the few books on statistics written to provide the practical help to the medical professionals. The chapter Measurement and Error Analysis was incorporated because of the medical mindset of the authors whose focus is often research papers and clinical trials. 
Additional topics such as life table, Kaplan-Meier curves, interpolation, time series, etc. also have been included. Subjects such as statistical quality control, decision theory, index number, which find use in medical administration, also get a fair treatment.

Key Feature:- 

• The prime purpose of the treatise is to remove the fear of statistics as an extra-terrestrial object and to foster the scientific way of thinking-accepting only the proof and not agreeing until the concept is clearly proved or disproved 
• Pure mathematical approach has been limited to minimum possible with focus on the concepts 
• Provides a complete overview of the statistical methods in a concise and precise manner to build a strong foundation for understanding the advanced tools and techniques 
• Compares the concepts wherever possible so that the fine differences are captured and conveyed 
• The chapters Back to School-to review the elementary concepts such as fractions, logs, set theory, permutation and combination, etc. and Measurement and Error Analysis-to focus on research papers and clinical trials, are added 
• Includes the additional topics such as life table, Kaplan-Meier curves, interpolation, time series, etc. and subjects such as statistical quality control, decision theory, index numbers which find use in medical administration.
