- Multiple Imputation and Its Application byISBN: 9781118442616Publication Date: 2012This book focuses on a particular statistical method for analysing and drawing inferences from incomplete data, called Multiple Imputation (MI). The authors aim is to clarify the issues raised by missing data, describing the rationale for MI, the relationship between the various imputation models and associated algorithms and its application to increasingly complex data structures.

- Epidemiology: Study Design and Data Analysis byISBN: 9781439839706Publication Date: 2013Updated and expanded, this edition shows students how statistical principles and techniques can help solve epidemiological problems. Features new chapters on computer-intensive methods and new sections on binomial regression models, competing risk, information criteria, propensity scoring, and splines. Many more exercises and examples using both Stata and SAS.
- Applied Spatial Statistics for Public Health Data byISBN: 1280345888Publication Date: 2004Now available as an ebook, this text provides a thorough introduction to basic concepts and methods in applied spatial statistics as well as a detailed treatment of some of the more recent methods in spatial statistics useful for public health studies.

- Data Mining with R byISBN: 9781482234893Publication Date: 2017Covers the main data mining techniques through carefully selected case studies. Describes code and approaches that can be easily reproduced or adapted to your own problems. Requires no prior experience with R.
- Data Mining Techniques byISBN: 9781118087503Publication Date: 2011This new edition-more than 50% new and revised- is a significant update from the previous one, and shows you how to harness the newest data mining methods and techniques to solve common business problems.
- Pattern Mining with Evolutionary Algorithms byISBN: 9783319338583Publication Date: 2016This book provides a comprehensive overview of the field of pattern mining with evolutionary algorithms. To do so, it covers formal definitions about patterns, patterns mining, type of patterns and the usefulness of patterns in the knowledge discovery process.

- Data Visualization Made Simple byISBN: 9781138503915Publication Date: 2018-10-15Data Visualization Made Simple is a practical guide to the fundamentals, strategies, and real-world cases for data visualization, an essential skill required in today’s information-rich world. With foundations rooted in statistics, psychology, and computer science, data visualization offers practitioners in almost every field a coherent way to share findings from original research, big data, learning analytics, and more.

- Multilevel Analysis byISBN: 9781138121409Publication Date: 2017This accessible introduction helps readers apply multilevel techniques to their research. The book also includes advanced extensions, making it useful as both an introduction for students and as a reference for researchers. Basic models and examples are discussed in nontechnical terms with an emphasis on understanding the methodological and statistical issues involved in using these models.
- Multilevel Statistical Models byISBN: 9780470973400Publication Date: 2011Provides a clear introduction and a comprehensive account of multilevel models. New methodological developments and applications are explored. Written by a leading expert in the field of multilevel methodology. Illustrated throughout with real-life examples, explaining theoretical concepts.

We've acquired a range of titles from Chapman & Hall's *Texts in Statistical Science *series.

- Bayesian Data Analysis byISBN: 9781439840955Publication Date: 2013This third edition continues to take an applied approach to analysis using up-to-date Bayesian methods. The authors introduce basic concepts from a data-analytic perspective before presenting advanced methods. Throughout the text, numerous worked examples drawn from real applications and research emphasize the use of Bayesian inference in practice.
- Statistical Rethinking byISBN: 9781482253443Publication Date: 2015The text presents generalized linear multilevel models from a Bayesian perspective, relying on a simple logical interpretation of Bayesian probability and maximum entropy. It covers from the basics of regression to multilevel models. The author also discusses measurement error, missing data, and Gaussian process models for spatial and network autocorrelation.
- Bayesian Networks byISBN: 9781482225587Publication Date: 2014This book introduces Bayesian networks using a hands-on approach. Simple yet meaningful examples in R illustrate each step of the modeling process. The examples start from the simplest notions and gradually increase in complexity. The authors also distinguish the probabilistic models from their estimation with data sets.
