  1. Flexible Parametric Survival Analysis Using Stata

    Beyond the Cox Model

    By Patrick Royston, Paul C. Lambert

    Through real-world case studies, this book shows how to use Stata to estimate a class of flexible parametric survival models. It discusses the modeling of time-dependent and continuous covariates and looks at how relative survival can be used to measure mortality associated with a particular...

  2. Statistical Thinking in Epidemiology

    By Yu-Kang Tu, Mark S. Gilthorpe

    While biomedical researchers may be able to follow instructions in the manuals accompanying the statistical software packages, they do not always have sufficient knowledge to choose the appropriate statistical methods and correctly interpret their results. Statistical Thinking in Epidemiology...

  3. Statistical Inference

    The Minimum Distance Approach

    By Ayanendranath Basu, Hiroyuki Shioya, Chanseok Park

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

    In many ways, estimation by an appropriate minimum distance method is one of the most natural ideas in statistics. However, there are many different ways of constructing an appropriate distance between the data and the model: the scope of study referred to by "Minimum Distance Estimation" is...

  6. Optimal Experimental Design with R

    By Dieter Rasch, Jurgen Pilz, L.R. Verdooren, Albrecht Gebhardt

    Experimental design is often overlooked in the literature of applied and mathematical statistics: statistics is taught and understood as merely a collection of methods for analyzing data. Consequently, experimenters seldom think about optimal design, including prerequisites such as the necessary...
