Mathematical concepts and their applications are fundamental to epidemiology. However, many public health students lack adequate quantitative background and find themselves struggling with simple math such as converting fractions to decimals; filling in 2 by 2 tables; reading story problems; understanding the difference between ratios, proportions, and rates; and connecting selected math concepts to epidemiologic study designs. Other students have been taught the math principles that deal with epidemiology, but did not learn how to apply these mathematical tools to research study designs.
As the first of its kind, this book reviews fundamental math concepts and procedures for epidemiology. Students will learn how to connect the math principles and procedures to the epidemiologic study designs. They will also will gain opportunities to apply the math principles to real-life problems and case studies.
