  1. Design and Analysis of Experiments with R

    By John Lawson

    Series: Chapman & Hall/CRC Texts in Statistical Science

    Design and Analysis of Experiments with R presents a unified treatment of experimental designs and design concepts commonly used in practice. It connects the objectives of research to the type of experimental design required, describes the process of creating the design and collecting the data,...

  2. Mendelian Randomization

    Methods for Using Genetic Variants in Causal Estimation

    By Stephen Burgess, Simon G. Thompson

    Mendelian randomization is a way of assessing causal associations from observational data, which is especially important for medical scientists and epidemiologists who want to know the true causes of diseases. Covering this emerging area of research in biostatistics and epidemiology, this book...

  3. Using R and RStudio for Data Management, Statistical Analysis and Graphics, Second Edition

    By Nicholas J. Horton, Ken Kleinman

    This is the second edition of the popular book on using R for statistical analysis and graphics. The authors, who run a popular blog supplementing their books, have focused on adding many new examples to this new edition. These examples are presented primarily in new chapters based on the following...

  4. 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. Accessible to statisticians and researchers from various disciplines, this book presents an...

  5. Adaptive Designs for Sequential Treatment Allocation

    By Alessandro Baldi Antognini, Alessandra Giovagnoli

    Series: Chapman & Hall/CRC Biostatistics Series

    Adaptive experimental designs are sequential procedures for collecting data. In each step, the observer can use all of the information gathered to determine whether to stop or carry on with the study. This book focuses on recently developed methods in adaptive randomization for treatment allocation...

  6. Robust Methods for Data Reduction

    By Alessio Farcomeni, Luca Greco

    An accessible overview of select robust methods for data reduction, this book covers exploratory data analysis, dimension reduction techniques, and sample reduction techniques. Emphasizing the practical application of the methods and interpretation of the results, theoretical details are kept to a...

  8. Data Analysis with Competing Risks and Intermediate States

    By Ronald Geskus

    Series: Chapman & Hall/CRC Texts in Statistical Science

    This practical book helps biomedical and epidemiological researchers extend their knowledge and skills in the analysis of standard time-to-event data to the competing risks setting. The author explains the main concepts that play a role in competing risks analyses, including the independence...

  9. Bayesian Methods for Repeated Measures

    By Lyle D. Broemeling

    Series: Chapman & Hall/CRC Biostatistics Series

    This book introduces the reader to a Bayesian approach to repeated measures and will include WinBUGS code. The book covers diagnostic procedures for repeated measures along with a complete treatment of missing data and uses a multinomial model to analyze binary and count data and the more general...

  10. Inferential Models

    Reasoning with Uncertainty

    By Chuanhai Liu, Ryan Martin

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

    This book delves into the authors’ work toward deeper understanding of statistical inference in terms of reasoning with uncertainty and meaningfulness of probabilistic inferential output. Focusing on a valid, prior-free probabilistic inferential framework called inferential models, the authors...
