Most recent volume
This volume addresses new challenges in existing and emerging diseases. As a two part volume, the title covers an extensive range of techniques in the field. The lack of availability of complete data relating to disease symptoms and disease epidemiology is one of the biggest challenges facing vaccine developers, public health planners, epidemiologists and health sector researchers. Therefore, it is vital for statisticians to be able to access a number of different methods for assessing epidemic spread in population, or formulating public health policy. Because the epidemic data available can differ, these volumes will help to prevent potential statistical bias.
