Data Sets for Statistics in Medicine, 4th Edition

On this page, you will find the 17 data sets that were printed and/or discussed in the book, along with 20 additional data sets used at various places in the book or in our lectures at Emory University School of Medicine, Rady Children’s Hospital San Diego, San Diego State University, and UC Irvine. Data set descriptions and definitions for the first 17 are given in the book and for the additional 20 are given in PowerPoint slides, also accessible on this website. These data sets, in Excel format on this website, can be downloaded and transferred into whatever format is wanted. They may be used to perform the exercises given in the book or to practice using any appropriate statistical methods. The 20 additional data sets pose questions that can be used for practice in the PowerPoint descriptions.
