About the Authors
  • If you use statistics and need a useful, up-to-date and reliable sourcebook that provides simple definitions and explanations of statistical concepts, especially those used in biomedicine, then you will need this 1995 dictionary. Over 2000 terms are included here; Professor Everitt has aimed to provide brief but useful descriptions of those terms frequently found in the medical and medical statistics literature. Where appropriate, graphical illustrations or numerical examples are given, and the use of mathematical formulae has been minimised. This will be an essential reference for workers in all branches of medicine, applied statistics and biostatistics, especially research workers and research oriented clinicians.

    • Covers all the most recent statistical terms of importance in medicine
    • High proportion of illustrative graphical material
    • Concentrates on statistical terms of most relevance in medical and clinical research
    • Well known author in medical statistics

    Reviews & endorsements

    'I was consistently impressed by the precision of the definitions … Even to browse through the dictionary is quite rewarding … anyone involved in refereeing or editing medical manuscripts will find it invaluable, saving hours by throwing immediate light on to unfamiliar statistical terms.' British Journal of Surgery

    'As a medical statistician, I expect to find frequent need to dive upon this book (at last I have some sense of what Gibbs sampling is all about!).' Journal of Anatomy
