  1. Mendelian Randomization

    Methods for Using Genetic Variants in Causal Estimation

    By Stephen Burgess, Simon G. Thompson

    Series: Chapman & Hall/CRC Interdisciplinary Statistics

    Presents the Terminology and Methods of Mendelian Randomization for Epidemiological Studies Mendelian randomization uses genetic instrumental variables to make inferences about causal effects based on observational data. It, therefore, can be a reliable way of assessing the causal nature of risk...

  7. Measuring Statistical Evidence Using Relative Belief

    By Michael Evans

    Series: Chapman & Hall/CRC Monographs on Statistics & Applied Probability

    Most approaches to statistical inference refer to the evidence of something being true or false. But no theory exists that defines what this evidence is as an explicit quantity, which can lead to a lack of confidence in the conclusions. This book presents a theory of statistical inference based on...
