Unhealthy Societies: The Afflictions of Inequality

Unhealthy Societies: The Afflictions of Inequality Lowest new price: $29.99
Lowest used price: $5.92
List price: $63.95
Author: Richard G. Wilkinson

Among the developed countries it is not the richest societies which have the best health, but those which have the smallest income differences between rich and poor. Inequality and relative poverty have absolute effects: they increase death rates. But why? How can smaller income differences raise average life expectancy?
Using examples from the USA, Britain, Japan and Eastern Europe, and bringing together evidence from the social and medical sciences, Unhealthy Socities provides the explanation. Healthy, egalitarian societies are more socially cohesive. They have a stronger community life and suffer fewer of the corrosive effects of inequality. As well as inequality weakening the social fabric, damaging health and increasing crime rates, Unhealthy Societies shows that social cohesion is crucial to the quality of life.
The contrast between the material success and social failure of modern societies marks an imbalance which needs attention. The relationship between health and equality suggests that important social needs will go unmet without a larger measure of social and distributive justice. This path-breaking book is essential reading for health psychologists, sociologists, welfare economists, social policy analysts and all those concerned with the future of developed societies.

Applied Multilevel Analysis: A Practical Guide for Medical Researchers (Practical Guides to Biostatistics and Epidemiology)

Applied Multilevel Analysis: A Practical Guide for Medical Researchers (Practical Guides to Biostatistics and Epidemiology) Lowest new price: $47.79
Lowest used price: $40.54
List price: $84.00
Author: Jos W. R. Twisk
Brand: Brand: Cambridge University Press

This is a practical introduction to multilevel analysis suitable for all those doing research. Most books on multilevel analysis are written by statisticians; those books are difficult for non-mathematical researchers. In contrast, this volume provides an accessible account on the practical application of multilevel analysis in research. Many worked examples, with computer output, are given to illustrate and explain this subject. Datasets of the examples are available on the internet, so the reader can reanalyze the data. This approach will help bridge the conceptual and communication gap that exists between researchers and statisticians.

Lowest used price: $1.74
List price: $29.95
Author: Laurence G. Grimm
Brand: Brand: American Psychological Association

The book presents an overview of multivariate statistics and their place in research.

The most commonly used multivariate techniques are examined in detail: multiple regression and correlation, path analysis, principal-components analysis, exploratory and confirmatory factor analysis, multidimensional scaling, analysis of cross-classified data, logistic regression, multivariate an alysis of variance (MANOVA), discriminant analysis, and meta-analysis. Statistical notations are explained, underlying assumptions are described, and terms are defined clearly and understandably. Concepts and symbols are presented with minimal use of formulas and a generous use of real-world research examples. Each chapter also includes suggestions for additional reading and a glossary of statistical and related terms.

This book takes the reader through the entire research process: choosing a question, designing a study, collecting the data, using univariate, bivariate and multivariable analysis, and publishing the results. It does so by using plain language rather than complex derivations and mathematical formulas. It focuses on the nuts and bolts of performing research by asking and answering the most basic questions about doing research studies. Making good use of numerous tables, graphs and tips, this book helps to demystify the process. A generous number of up-to-date examples from the clinical literature give an illustrated and practical account of how to use multivariable analysis.

Author: Ann Aschengrau

The second edition of this best selling text is comprehensive introduction to principles applied in the practice of epidemiology in public health. Featuring the most current data and includes new problems, this revision incorporates modern ideas in epidemiological thinking that have been largely omitted in other textbooks. This edition will familiarize readers with terminology and key concepts in the design, analysis, and interpretation of epidemiological research, giving students the tools they need to critically evaluate scientific literature. Broad in scope, the text opens with five chapters covering the basic epidemiologic concepts and data sources. A major emphasis is placed on study design, with separate chapters devoted to each of the three main analytic designs: experimental, cohort, and case-control studies. Full chapters on bias, confounding, and random error, including the roll of statistics in epidemiology, ensure that students are well-equipped with the necessary information to interpret the results of epidemiologic studies. An entire chapter is also devoted to the concept of effect measure modification, an often-neglected topic in introductory textbooks. Up-to-date examples from the epidemiologic literature on diseases of public health importance are provided throughout the book.
