Principles of applied statistics by D. R Cox( )

13 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 663 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In ideal sequence is defined specifying the progression of an investigation from the conception of one or more research questions to the drawing of conclusions. The role of statistical analysis is outlined for design, measurement, analysis and interpretation. 1.1 Preliminaries This short chapter gives a general account of the issues to be discussed in the book, namely those connected with situations in which appreciable unexplained and haphazard variation is present. We outline in idealized form the main phases of this kind of scientific investigation and the stages of statistical analysis likely to be needed. It would be arid to attempt a precise definition of statistical analysis as contrasted with other forms of analysis"--
Statistical aspects of BSE and vCJD : models for epidemics by Christl A Donnelly( Book )

Principles of applied statistics by D. R Cox( )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Applied statistics is more than data analysis, but it is easy to lose sight of the big picture. David Cox and Christl Donnelly distil decades of scientific experience into usable principles for the successful application of statistics, showing how good statistical strategy shapes every stage of an investigation. As you advance from research or policy question, to study design, through modelling and interpretation, and finally to meaningful conclusions, this book will be a valuable guide. Over a hundred illustrations from a wide variety of real applications make the conceptual points concrete, illuminating your path and deepening your understanding. This book is essential reading for anyone who makes extensive use of statistical methods in their work

Ranging behaviour of badgers Meles meles vaccinated with Bacillus Calmette Guerin( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Because biological systems are complex, management interventions occasionally have unintended adverse consequences. For example, attempts to control bovine tuberculosis (TB) by culling badgers Meles meles have, under some circumstances, inadvertently increased cattle TB risks. Such harmful effects occur because culling profoundly alters badger movement behaviour, increasing pathogen transmission both between badgers and from badgers to cattle. It has recently been suggested that another TB management tool, badger vaccination with Bacillus Calmette Guerin, might provoke similar behavioural changes and hence similar harmful effects for cattle. We therefore took advantage of an existing project, which monitored 54 GPS-collared badgers across four study sites in southwest Britain, to explore whether vaccination, or live trapping to administer vaccine, influenced badger movement behaviour. We detected no significant effects of either vaccination or trapping on badgers' monthly home range size, nightly distance travelled, or frequency of trespassing in neighbouring territories. The estimated effect of vaccination on badger home range size [2% reduction, 95% confidence interval (CI) 18% reduction - 17% increase] was statistically non-significant, but significantly smaller than that associated with both widespread (180% increase, 95% CI 70-362% increase; P <0·001) and localised badger culling (74% increase, 95% CI 4-191% increase; P = 0·038). Synthesis and applications . In contrast with culling, live trapping and vaccinating badgers did not measurably alter their movement behaviour, fuelling optimism that vaccination might contribute positively to cattle tuberculosis control. Our study illustrates how existing monitoring can be exploited to assess potentially adverse effects of wildlife management.
