Book Description

May 18 2006 0470023562 978-0470023563 2
A mixed model allows the incorporation of both fixed and random variables within a statistical analysis. This enables efficient inferences and more information to be gained from the data. The application of mixed models is an increasingly popular way of analysing medical data, particularly in the pharmaceutical industry. There have been many recent advances in mixed modelling, particularly regarding the software and applications. This new edition of a groundbreaking text discusses the latest developments, from updated SAS techniques to the increasingly wide range of applications.
  • Presents an overview of the theory and applications of mixed models in medical research, including the latest developments and new sections on bioequivalence, cluster randomised trials and missing data.
  • Easily accessible to practitioners in any area where mixed models are used, including medical statisticians and economists.
  • Includes numerous examples using real data from medical and health research, and epidemiology, illustrated with SAS code and output.
  • Features new version of SAS, including the procedure PROC GLIMMIX and an introduction to other available software.
  • Supported by a website featuring computer code, data sets, and further material, available at: http://www.chs.med.ed.ac.uk/phs/mixed/.

This much-anticipated second edition is ideal for applied statisticians working in medical research and the pharmaceutical industry, as well as teachers and students of statistics courses in mixed models. The text will also be of great value to a broad range of scientists, particularly those working the medical and pharmaceutical areas.

Review

"…a valuable mixed model resource for most applied statisticians working in the medical environment." (Biometrics, June 2007)

"…useful for practitioners and applied statisticians working in medical science." (Journal of the American Statistical Association, September 2007)

"…takes a practical rather than theoretical approach and requires understanding of only basic statistics." (MAA Reviews, October 30, 2006)

“This second edition gives an overview of the theory of mixed models and its application to real data in medical research.” (Zentralblatt MATH, April 2007)

5.0 out of 5 stars exccellent book, wish the price is cheaper April 21 2004
By xlsyu
Format:Hardcover
One of my collegues recommended this book to me. It surprised me that it has a very broader coverage of topics in medicine where mixed model is appropriate. This book talked many pratical issues such as "why the mixed model failed to converge" etc. The mathematical background is not demanding.
Another advantage of this book is that there are so many examples in the book.
