  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...

  3. Bayesian Inference for Partially Identified Models

    Exploring the Limits of Limited Data

    By Paul Gustafson

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

    Many observational studies in epidemiology and other disciplines face inherent limitations in study design and data quality, such as selection bias, unobserved variables, and poorly measured variables.

  7. Measuring Statistical Evidence Using Relative Belief

    By Michael Evans

    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...
