This volume consists of three parts: Part I comprises 11 chapters on the basic concepts of statistics, Part II consists of 10 chapters on multivariate statistics and Part III contains 12 chapters on design and analysis for medical research. The book is written using basic concepts and commonly used methods of design and analysis in medical statistics, incorporating the operation of statistical package SAS and 100 computer experiments for the important statistical phenomena related to each chapter. All necessary data, including reference answers for the exercises, SAS programs for all computer experiments and part of the examples, and data documents for 12 medical researches are available. The Chinese version of this book has been recommended as a textbook of statistics for postgraduate program by the Office of Education Research, Ministry of Education, People's Republic of China.
