Abstract
It is apparent to anyone who reads the medical literature today that some knowledge of biostatistics and epidemiology is a neccessity. This is particularly true in occupational and environmental health, in which many of the findings are based on epidemiologic studies of subjects exposed to low levels of an agent. Research has become more rigorous in the area of study design and analysis, and reports of clinical and epidemiologic research contain increasing amounts of statistical methodology. This appendix provides a brief introduction to some of the basic principles of biostatistics and epidemiology.
