Module Reading List

Statistical Methods in Health Research, 2021/22, Semester 2

Tutor information is taken from the Module Catalogue

You don't really need a text book, but if you want one, I'd look at a couple in the library before buying. The core reader (Dupont) is a really good book that covers everything in this module and more. It is available online for free through the library. An alternative is (Kirkwood & Sterne). Both books include examples using Stata software. For the super keen, the full reading list is given below, but this is more to supplement your learning rather than replace it:


Core reading:

Dupont, W.D. (2009) Statistical modeling for biomedical researchers: a simple introduction to the analysis of complex data. 2nd ed. Cambridge: Cambridge University Press.
