Quantitative Research in Human Biology and Medicine reflects the author's past activities and experiences in the field of medical statistics. The book presents statistical material from a variety of medical fields.
The text contains chapters that deal with different aspects of vital statistics. It provides statistical surveys of perinatal mortality rate; epidemiology of various diseases, like cancer, tuberculosis, malaria, diphtheria, and scarlatina; and discussions of various aspects of human biology such as growth and development, genetics, and nutrition. The inheritance of mental qualities; the law governing multiple births; and historical demography are covered as well.
Medical statisticians and physicians will find the book interesting.
