Chapman & Hall/CRC Interdisciplinary Statistics


About the Series

Launched in the 1990s, reflecting the increasing importance of statistics in various fields of scientific research, the series aims to foster the application of statistical methodology in these disciplines. It is vital in the modern information era, with a prevalence of large and complex datasets, that researchers, practitioners and students from nearly all sciences have a solid understanding of statistical methods and their application.

The books in the series are necessarily very applied in nature, presenting overviews of statistical methodology with applications in fields as diverse as medical research, epidemiology, biology, genetics, ecology, actuarial science, social and behavioral science, and engineering. An emphasis is placed on describing the methods with sufficient rigor whilst assuming little in terms of the mathematical sophistication of the reader. The inclusion of detailed case studies and worked examples, preferably implemented using recognized statistical software, is therefore essential.

Model-based Geostatistics for Global Public Health: Methods and Applications

Model-based Geostatistics for Global Public Health: Methods and Applications

1st Edition

Peter J. Diggle, Emanuele Giorgi
March 11, 2019

Model-based Geostatistics for Global Public Health: Methods and Applications provides an introductory account of model-based geostatistics, its implementation in open-source software and its application in public health research. In the public health problems that are the focus of this book, the...

Design of Experiments for Generalized Linear Models

Design of Experiments for Generalized Linear Models

1st Edition

Kenneth G. Russell
December 26, 2018

Generalized Linear Models (GLMs) allow many statistical analyses to be extended to important statistical distributions other than the Normal distribution. While numerous books exist on how to analyse data using a GLM, little information is available on how to collect the data that are to be...

Applied Directional Statistics: Modern Methods and Case Studies

Applied Directional Statistics: Modern Methods and Case Studies

1st Edition

Christophe Ley, Thomas Verdebout
September 10, 2018

This book collects important advances in methodology and data analysis for directional statistics. It is the companion book of the more theoretical treatment presented in Modern Directional Statistics (CRC Press, 2017). The field of directional statistics has received a lot of attention due to...

Compositional Data Analysis in Practice

Compositional Data Analysis in Practice

1st Edition

Michael Greenacre
August 01, 2018

Compositional Data Analysis in Practice is a user-oriented practical guide to the analysis of data with the property of a constant sum, for example percentages adding up to 100%. Compositional data can give misleading results if regular statistical methods are applied, and are best analysed by...

Flexible Imputation of Missing Data, Second Edition

Flexible Imputation of Missing Data, Second Edition

2nd Edition

Stef van Buuren
July 16, 2018

Missing data pose challenges to real-life data analysis. Simple ad-hoc fixes, like deletion or mean imputation, only work under highly restrictive conditions, which are often not met in practice. Multiple imputation replaces each missing value by multiple plausible values. The variability between...

Bayesian Disease Mapping: Hierarchical Modeling in Spatial Epidemiology, Third Edition

Bayesian Disease Mapping: Hierarchical Modeling in Spatial Epidemiology, Third Edition

3rd Edition

Andrew B. Lawson
May 24, 2018

Since the publication of the second edition, many new Bayesian tools and methods have been developed for space-time data analysis, the predictive modeling of health outcomes, and other spatial biostatistical areas. Exploring these new developments, Bayesian Disease Mapping: Hierarchical Modeling in...

Statistical Methods in Psychiatry and Related Fields: Longitudinal, Clustered, and Other Repeated Measures Data

Statistical Methods in Psychiatry and Related Fields: Longitudinal, Clustered, and Other Repeated Measures Data

1st Edition

Ralitza Gueorguieva
November 15, 2017

Data collected in psychiatry and related fields are complex because outcomes are rarely directly observed, there are multiple correlated repeated measures within individuals, there is natural heterogeneity in treatment responses and in other characteristics in the populations. Simple statistical...

Survival Analysis with Interval-Censored Data: A Practical Approach with Examples in R, SAS, and BUGS

Survival Analysis with Interval-Censored Data: A Practical Approach with Examples in R, SAS, and BUGS

1st Edition

Kris Bogaerts, Arnost Komarek, Emmanuel Lesaffre
November 14, 2017

Survival Analysis with Interval-Censored Data: A Practical Approach with Examples in R, SAS, and BUGS provides the reader with a practical introduction into the analysis of interval-censored survival times. Although many theoretical developments have appeared in the last fifty years, interval...

Modern Directional Statistics

Modern Directional Statistics

1st Edition

Christophe Ley, Thomas Verdebout
September 15, 2017

Modern Directional Statistics collects important advances in methodology and theory for directional statistics over the last two decades. It provides a detailed overview and analysis of recent results that can help both researchers and practitioners. Knowledge of multivariate statistics eases the...

Capture-Recapture Methods for the Social and Medical Sciences

Capture-Recapture Methods for the Social and Medical Sciences

1st Edition

Dankmar Bohning, Peter G.M. van der Heijden, John Bunge
July 17, 2017

Capture-recapture methods have been used in biology and ecology for more than 100 years. However, it is only recently that these methods have become popular in the social and medical sciences to estimate the size of elusive populations such as illegal immigrants, illicit drug users, or people with...

Statistics of Medical Imaging

Statistics of Medical Imaging

1st Edition

Tianhu Lei
June 14, 2017

Statistical investigation into technology not only provides a better understanding of the intrinsic features of the technology (analysis), but also leads to an improved design of the technology (synthesis). Physical principles and mathematical procedures of medical imaging technologies have been...

Correspondence Analysis in Practice

Correspondence Analysis in Practice

3rd Edition

Michael Greenacre
December 20, 2016

Drawing on the author’s 45 years of experience in multivariate analysis, Correspondence Analysis in Practice, Third Edition, shows how the versatile method of correspondence analysis (CA) can be used for data visualization in a wide variety of situations. CA and its variants, subset CA, multiple CA...
