Abstract:

"This book is dedicated to the proposition that health policy should be evidence-based, and that epidemiology can provide much of the evidence. Unlike most epidemiology textbooks, which focus on etiologic research, Epidemiologic Methods for Health Policy emphasizes the descriptive methods that are relevant to policy. Many practical examples are provided, drawn from several developed countries, but mathematics is kept to an elementary level. A recurring theme is the interaction between health phenomena and the underlying population dynamics, and thus the close relationship of this type of epidemiology to demography."--Jacket.
