The thoroughly revised and updated Third Edition of Dr. Rothman's acclaimed Modern Epidemiology reflects the conceptual development of this evolving science and the engagement of epidemiologists with an increasing range of current public health concerns.

The book covers a broad range of concepts and methods, such as basic measures, study types, and field methods, as well as advanced topics in data analysis such as hierarchical regression.
