Abstract:

Epidemiology is recognised as the science of public health, evidence-based medicine, and comparative effectiveness research. Causal inference is the theoretical foundation underlying all of the above. No introduction to epidemiology is complete without extensive discussion of causal inference; what's missing is a textbook that takes such an approach. 'Epidemiology by Design' takes a causal approach to the foundations of traditional introductory epidemiology. Through an organising principle of study designs, it teaches epidemiology through modern causal inference approaches, including potential outcomes, counterfactuals, and causal identification conditions. -- Provided by publisher.
