Data Management for Animal Health
AusVet Series in Epidemiological Skills for Animal Health
Angus Cameron, Evan Sergeant & Chris Baldock, 2004
This book is targeted at students of epidemiology, and aims to provide practice in the important but often overlooked area of data management and manipulations.
This book consists of six chapters covering various aspects of data management. Each chapter has a series of self assessment questions, which use a variety of different data sources and software tools. The appendix also contains a description of four further data sets for use in evaluation exercises.
The data for these can be found in a separate download . The answer files are password protected, with the passwords available on request from AusVet. The reason for this arrangement is to enable this text to be used not only for independent study, but also as part of a structured course in epidemiology. The complex issues raised in the case studies require deep and considered thought and the temptation to use shortcuts in this process is often unable to be resisted if answers to questions are printed in the same volume or readily available in electronic format.
Students using this text as part of a structured course only need to download this volume. Teachers will also require the Teacher’s Guide. Students intending to use the text for private study should download the teacher’s guide if they wish to have access to all the data.
