Handler A, Rosenberg D, Kennelly J, Monahan, C. 1998. Analytic methods in maternal and child health. Chicago, IL: University of Illinois at Chicago, School of Public Health, 279 pp.

Annotation: This textbook is part of a training program to enhance the analytic skills of maternal and child health (MCH) professionals in state health agencies. Descriptive epidemiology and statistical estimation, measures of association and hypothesis testing, analytic epidemiology and multivariable methods, methods for summarizing data, methods for analyzing trend data, creating target population estimates using national survey data, and using census data in MCH are discussed. These are presented as analytic issues that MCH professionals can expect to confront in their daily work. [Funded by the Maternal and Child Health Bureau] K120 archived by NMCHC 1/2001 SJA
