Summary

This text provides an introduction to the principles and practice of epidemiology to public health professionals whose primary focus is not epidemiology. Terminology, concepts, and sources of information enable readers to be knowledgeable consumers of the epidemiologic literature. The book covers everything from the historical development of epidemiology, concepts of causality, and definitions of disease and health to measures of disease frequency and sources of community health data.
