Absolute or Crude Risk: Applications in Disease Prevention

Published:

August 15, 2015

Author(s):

Mitchell H. Gail, Ruth Pfeiffer

Absolute risk is the probability of developing a specific disease over a specified time interval in the presence of competing causes of mortality. Although absolute risk is arguably more relevant to clinical decision making than "pure" risk, the development of appropriate statistical methods for 

Inferential Models: Reasoning with Uncertainty

Published:

July 15, 2015

Author(s):

Chuanhai Liu, Ryan Martin

This book delves into the authors’ work toward deeper understanding of statistical inference in terms of reasoning with uncertainty and meaningfulness of probabilistic inferential output. Focusing on a valid, prior-free probabilistic inferential framework called inferential models, the authors 

Martingale Methods in Statistics

Published:

July 15, 2015

Author(s):

Yoichi Nishiyama

This gives a comprehensive introduction to the (standard) statistical analysis based on the theory of martingales and develops entropy methods in order to treat dependent data in the framework of martingales. The author starts a summary of the martingale theory, and then proceeds to give full 

Covariance Modelling

Published:

June 26, 2015

Author(s):

Gilbert Mackenzie

Written by a researcher at the forefront of the field, this book expounds on modern theory of covariance modelling in which regression models are used to model the covariance structure simultaneously with the mean. In a systematic treatment, quite possibly the first available in a convenient format 

Propensity Score Modeling and Adjustment Procedures

Published:

June 26, 2015

Author(s):

David Stephens

This book provides a good balance of propensity score modeling theory (particularly semiparametric methods) and applications through worked examples and software, including R and Stata code. Key topics covered include longitudinal data, survival data, survey sampling, model selection, and Bayesian 

Models for Dependent Time Series

Published:

May 15, 2015

Author(s):

Granville Tunnicliffe-Wilson, Marco Reale, John Haywood

Authored by leading researchers in multivariate time series, this book introduces time series models based on lagged regression, particularly vector autoregressive models. It covers recent developments, such as graphical modeling and generalized lag models, and extends them to the important case of 

Bayesian Inference for Partially Identified Models: Exploring the Limits of Limited Data

Published:

April 15, 2015

Author(s):

Paul Gustafson

Many observational studies in epidemiology and other disciplines face inherent limitations in study design and data quality, such as selection bias, unobserved variables, and poorly measured variables. Accessible to statisticians and researchers from various disciplines, this book presents an 

Pareto Distributions Second Edition

March 09, 2015

Author(s):

Barry C. Arnold

A considerable number of papers on Pareto distributions and related topics have appeared since the first edition of this hadbook. This book updates the popular first edition by interleafing developments inequality indices, parametric families of Lorenz curves, Pareto processes, hidden truncation, 

Introduction to High-Dimensional Statistics

Published:

December 30, 2014

Author(s):

Christophe Giraud

This book provides a straightforward, up-to-date introduction to high-dimensional statistics. It avoids any unnecessary technicalities, instead focusing on the main underlying concepts in simple settings. It gives readers a strong background in high-dimensional statistics by explaining key concepts 

Design and Analysis of Cross-Over Trials, Third Edition

Published:

October 08, 2014

Author(s):

Byron Jones, Michael G. Kenward

Design and Analysis of Cross-Over Trials is concerned with a specific kind of comparative trial known as the cross-over trial, in which subjects receive different sequences of treatments. Such trials are widely used in clinical and medical research, and in other diverse areas such as veterinary 

Hierarchical Modeling and Analysis for Spatial Data, Second Edition
