Contents Notes
1. S-language -- 2. Descriptive techniques -- 3. Simulation: Random values -- 4. General linear models -- 5. Estimation -- 6. Analysis of tabular data -- 7. Analysis of variance and some other S-functions -- 8. Rates, life tables, and survival. "Modern Applied Biostatistical Methods Using S-Plus is unlike other statistical texts, which usually deal either with theory or with applications. It integrates the two elements into a single presentation of theoretical background, data, interpretation, graphics, and implementation. This all-around approach will be particularly helpful to students in various biostatistics and advanced epidemiology courses, and will interest all researchers involved in biomedical data analysis."--Jacket.
